ZoomIn2 Photographic Time Lapse

June 30


As the Tayside Biodiversity Festival comes to a close, how about starting up a photographic time lapse as we leave one month and go into a new one?

ZOOMIn2 is about taking regular photographs of your special space. For this project we are looking for natural areas in Tayside, not buildings or people. So – which green spaces or natural places do you visit often? The photographs you take each month (or at least every six weeks) will form a time lapse record showing the different seasons of your one special place.

Just find something you want to study through the seasons – it could be an apple tree, a view across your local park or allotment, your school grounds, the sand dunes by a beach, the care home patio, a far-reaching country view, a favourite woodland walk, or even a special No Mow area in your garden or nearby greenspace!

Find a marker or something you can easily return to every month to frame your photo – so that each photo is the same every time – and then take your first photo. In a month’s time, take your second photo of exactly the same thing, and then a third month, and so on through all the seasons. You may not notice much difference at first, but when it becomes a time lapse, you will be astonished how the seasons change everything!

This project is suitable for all ages so please involve children and the older generation. Each member of the family could choose a different subject or colleagues at work could focus on different aspects of the area around them. Whole classrooms could involve each child and help them choose somewhere special.

There’s a lot more information on the Tayside Biodiversity Partnership’s special website – http://www.zoomin2.co.uk/.
