My first try at time-lapse photography.

This was taken late in the afternoon, and the difference in light is probably a bit too high, but I think it's not too bad for a first attempt.

This is really great!!! Fav for all the effort that went in to this one!!! Time lapse photography is something that has always fascinated me!!!

How many shots did you use to compile this one, and over how long were they taken... if I may ask???

@kbalychev Thank you very much for your nice comments, Kimberly! The music is a standard track that's included in iMovie, and is called Bossa Lounger ;)

@monkeykid Thank you very much Therese!
Originally I took 360 shots in 90 minutes, so one shot every 15 seconds. The light changed too much though, so I had to trim the first and last shots, leaving me with 146 shots, for a total time of 36 minutes, compressed into 30 seconds.

Awesome! Love the cloud movement! Great tune too:)

This is really neat! Were you out there for 90 minutes pressing the shutter every 15 seconds or were you able set your camera to do it automatically?

@pammerritt Thank you!

Amazing sight! Really very well done! And superb jazz to accompany it!

@reva No, I wasn't out, because this is the view from of our back window :)
And the D700 has a built in timer that allows you to set the number of frames to be taken, and the interval between the shots. So I put it on a tripod, set it to take 360 shots at 15 seconds interval, and after 90 minutes went back up and it had done a nice job :)

@tishpics Thank you very much!

turned out wonderful not sure my camera will do this.

@lesip Thank you! I think it will, the D5100 and higher have this feature.
February 11th, 2013  
@spock thanks will try and figure it out.
February 11th, 2013  
I love this. Thanks for explaining how you did it. Very interesting!
February 12th, 2013  
@kizzysmom Glad you like it! Maybe you can try it too sometime?

Very nicely done. Love the cloud movement.

I've been thinking about doing something like this for a couple of months. www.Adorama.com has a tutorial on doing this and I just installed Magic Lantern on my camera so I can do interval shots. All that is left now is to pick a subject.
