I thought my first attempt at Time Lapse came out fairly well. All I did at the time was set it up and hit go. Yeah… there were a few more steps, but that was the forethought. Pretty jazzed about those results, I tried a few more things, without luck. One note: if you expect a spider to do anything, even after you poke a few strategically-placed holes in his web, maybe reconsider. Anyway, I liked the little taste of long-exposure nighttime action in the first time lapse, so I set it up at sunset this time. What do you think?
I also did a little more processing on this one. Instead of leaving it at defaults, I did some contrast correction and resized the photos down a bit since they get resized so much in the end anyway.
One last word about taking stills for a time lapse at night. During the day my battery was lasting for hundreds of shots with no problem. In this sequence, I only got just over 200 before it died since the night shots had shutter speeds of 30+ seconds. If I was going to do it again, I’d crank open the aperture a bit more to make the shots a bit shorter and get more life out of the battery.
UPDATE: For another more recent time-lapse attempt, see me building my fence.
