    Timelapse setup for documenting landscape work?

    Hi all,
    Not sure if I've picked the right forum, but I'm looking for suggestions as to how to set up for a multiple week landscape project we are going to be undergoing.

    What I want to do is figure out a way to set up a camera holder that can consistently hit the right position but that allows me to remove the camera, use it elsewhere, then put it back and have it close to if not spot on for continuing the timelapse with the same framing.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Doug

    I would just fix a tripod head that uses a quick plate. Keep the quick plate on your camera. That would be the simplest. I might still frame by giving a little space around the edge so you can register the series later.

    Not sure what you meant by this (register the series later)?

    Thanks,

    So after you take the photographs, there might be slight changes in camera position. You should be able to overlay the images to have them aligned--registration is the photo term for putting a series of images in the same position. If you frame perfectly, there will be no room to slightly shift images to get them to match.

    Ok, so basically the same as with HDR images or focus stacking. I just hadn't used that term before. Thanks.
