How to use your camera to keep an eye on your garden

Even if you have a green thumb and enjoy the thrill of seeing nature blossom before your eyes, creating a garden is no easy task. It takes time, effort, money and-above all-patience. Whether your garden is being used to tend fresh fruits and vegetables or grow beautiful flowers and plants, there are moments that you definitely do not want to miss!

Keeping An Eye On Your Plants

Keeping a proper eye on the growth of your plants is not only important in determining the needs of your plants, but can have a significant effect on the potential health and appearance factor.  When it comes to your busy daily schedule, it can be difficult to watch your garden at all times. We would all love to see the fruits of our labor before our eyes, but the reality of this being possible is slim to none.  In numerous instances, time-lapse photography has been used to track the progress of specific plant growth with a visually pleasing technique, such as this video of a Watermelon Plant Time Lapse.

Time Lapse Photography

Time-lapse photography has become an increasingly popular cinematography practice in which the frequency at which film frames are captured (also known as the frame rate), is much lower than that which is used to play back the sequence, however long it may be. What makes this kind of photography so special is that, when viewed, time appears to be moving faster.  Processes like a growing garden that you normally can’t see with the human eye become totally amplified, creating an enjoyable visual experience in many contexts.

Creating A Time Lapse Studio

Many of us do not have the time and patience to snap photos of our garden on a daily basis, so we propose another option.  Creating a time-lapse video with a digital camera is relatively easy and can prove to be well worth it. Depending on where your garden is located, time-lapse photography can save you great amounts of time and pockets full of money. Setting up a time-lapse video camera will make it easy to capture garden subjects growing over any particular period of time and will make it virtually effortless to track the progress of your garden.

Time lapse photography can allow you to monitor your garden without physically being there; so that you can make sure animals are not tampering with your plants and that the proper amount of sunlight is hitting your garden.  If you are interested in setting your own time lapse video for your garden, check out this tutorial for an easy walk through article on exactly how to get your time-lapse video set up.
