Don't blink or you'll miss it. Last night (September 21 2011) my girlfriend's brother and I drove up into the mountains to practice shooting some time lapses. We ended stopping at Jackson Lake and setting up right there in the parking lot.

Had a lot of fun and learned a lot on what not to do. Both Huy and I were laughing about how we should've had a plan or at least practiced before we went out on this last minute trip.

This 5 second clip was taken over a 4hour period. Approximately 11pm-to 3am. Sadly I shot on intervals of 4mins, so once I had it on the computer the stars were flying by. Didn't know the stars moved so fast. Next time I'll try one minute. I knocked the frame rate down to 12 in an attempt to slow it down but it started the make the shot a little jumpy.

Camera used - Nikon D7000 with the AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G ED
Camera Settings - Exposure 25'' , f2.8, ISO 400, Interval until we got tired (approx 4hrs)

Music by Kanye West - All of the lights
