This time lapse took close to a month to finish. I had gone to a local grocery store where they always had bananas that were completely green, which is exactly what I needed for this project. My goal was to set up the shot and program the camera to snap a picture every 15 minutes. My expectation was that it would take the banana 7 to 10 days max to completely ripen, and boy was I wrong. Turns out these are some sort of “cooking” bananas. No, not plantains, bananas. And they took close to four weeks to go from completely green to what you see in the video.
You’ll notice a lot of flickering light in the video. This is due to my inability to block a lot of the outside light (due to lack of space, etc.), which was always changing.
The frame also shifts every once in a while and that is because, after the first few days, I had to take the battery out and charge it. I had to do this on a daily basis, because I could only do it in 12-13 minute increments. I was as careful as I could be to not move the tripod, but alas…still an amateur.
