So I have been taking my new GoPro Hero 3: Black Edition camera with me when I have been traveling for work. It is small, lightweight, and does not really add to the bulk of my already packed computer bag. So it was fortunate that a missed connection the night before through CLT allowed me a chance to get to the US Airways Club between the C/D concourses early in the morning. I was sitting there, trying to wake up when I looked outside and saw the sun starting to come up...I thought it would be a neat timelapse to try and capture of the airport activity and planes in the alleyway. While the sun is slowly rising, so much busy activity! Hope you all like it!
I was staying at the Hampton Inn Downtown Boise (Boise, ID) week before this last one and decided to set up my GoPro in the window there (was actually a semi-clean window!) for just under 24 hours. Every time I use this thing, I think I find more and more interesting scenes to capture. This view caught the traffic on the road, the weather changing (at the end you see a nice dust storm!) and some construction happening across the street. Pretty cool all in all. What do you think??
Took this video from my room at the Elara Hilton Grand Vacations near Planet Hollywood a couple weekends back. Its kind of interesting to see how Vegas changes during the day and at night. One thing I didn't notice before was how around 3-4 AM, many of the exterior lights on the casinos are turned off. Our room was facing towards the Wynn. You could see Paris, the top of the Bellagio,and others in the view. Enjoy!
I did this last weekend. Decided to try to experiment in the world of Night Time Astrophotography/Timelapses. I shot this using my Canon 60D with a 18mm-135mm f/3.5 lens.
I used a small netbook with the Canon EOS Utility loaded on it to act as an intervalometer and shutter controller. Each shot was done for 20 seconds, 5 second wait, then repeat for approximately 300 frames. I used Adobe Lighrtoom 5 to import and do some post-processing of the frames to change white balance (I chose the Tungsten pre-set) and adjusted the contrast and coloring some.
Finally, I exported all of the frames into JPEG and used Cineform Studio (what I use to do a lot of post- for my GoPro videos) to turn the frames into video.
Not bad...I need to hope for/find a clearer night...hard to get a perfectly clear night here in Ohio but it's worth trying for. :-)
