My First Time-Lapse

I got to try out my new, nifty, camera timer for the first time a few weeks ago while out hunting.  Among other things, it allows me to program how many pictures to take and how often to take them, in order to be able to make them in to a time-lapse video.

I really didn’t plan this out; I only came up with the idea of shooting this location about 30 minutes before I did it.  I didn’t have a lot of time to pick the best angle or check the sensor for dirt as I needed to get out in the woods for the last 90 minutes of hunting.

In the first few seconds, you’ll see me walking out to my hunting stand.  About 25 seconds in to it, you can see deer run across the field, and if you watch close in the last few seconds, you can see the blur of me and another hunter walking out.  We’re blurred because of the long shutter speeds needed to expose a photo at dusk.

This is 704 photos taken over 2 hours and 5 minutes.  Camera: Canon 30D

The Alaska Railroad arriving in Denali National Park.  As you can see, they keep these trains spotless.  Check back tomorrow to see 5+ minutes of video of the ride from the observation platform.

Denali National Park @ Eielson Visitor Center 360 video

I’m finally starting to do something with all of the vacation video I’ve taken the past few years. Downloaded Adobe Premier Pro last night and created this.  Technically, it is nothing fancy (I’m just proud enough I was able to download and install the software, and figure it out enough to create a video in under an hour and half) but as you can see, this place is absolutely beautiful.

See if you can figure out where the peak of Mt. McKinley is.  The answer is below the video.

Mt. McKinley is hiding behind the weather it is making in the center of the screen at about the 20 second mark.
