These are two timelapse tests overlooking Lake Austin on 21 May 2014. I shot them using a Canon 60D with a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens. The wind appears to have caused some slight sway in the tripod during the first shot, which I think was more pronounced because of the height of the tripod legs. Both were edited in Apple Motion.
One of the hardest challenges of Time Lapsing, since it speeds up time, is to capture fireworks successfully. I had never tried this, but read a bunch about it and how it was not something easily achievable. This is my attempt. For this entire Time Lapse, there were 6 different segments, and I did my best to blend them together, and there's only one major shift, when I had to physically move my camera to a different location due to a group of photographers who rudely jumped in front without any consideration! Aside from that shift (from daylight to night) I feel like it runs really well. Check it out and remember to share if you enjoy it!
There is over 3500 frames in this Time Lapse piece.. there is no actual Video footage, and the sounds for the water and fireworks were added in later!
On January 8th, 2013, the Texas State Capitol welcomed hundreds of legislators and thousands of Texans for opening day of the 83rd Legislative Session. This time lapse was created using over 6,000 still images, two cameras, and a variety of lenses including a Ukrainian-made tilt-shift lens.
A collection of time-lapses I've been working on for about 6 months now
I used a total of three cameras: Sony Handycam CX-160, Panasonic GF1, and the Panasonic GH2.
First I started with video but once I finally got my hands on the GH2 I bought a timer and started shooting with it.
I normally stayed outside capturing for about 1.5 to 2 hours. I am still in the process of learning how to perfect my time-lapses, hence the flickering in some shots. I wish I could have had more time-lapses with clouds in them, but this 2011 summer has been horrible with its record breaking heat and "exceptional drought" and FIRES!! I never would have expected Texas to be the one to have these types of wildfires!!
