My First Close Up Time Lapse Attempt

I’m sure most of you by now, know that i enjoy photography, I’m not that good at it, but i enjoy doing it and I’m sure i’ll improve over time, anyhow here is my first attempt at a close up time lapse, failings/tips for myself will be posted below it:

I had attempted to take a time lapse of ice melting, i placed one ice cube leaning against another one, they started to move as they melted, meaning i wasn’t taking a time lapse of a still item, i need to take time to set the scene up properly and make sure that there isn’t any light changes during the shoot, the light changes cause the flicker that you seen.
