Seven hour of my life, in two minutes, with Mozart

January 26, 2016  •  1 Comment

7 Hours of my life, in 2 minutes - with MozartTime lapse video shot over seven hours after the mid-Atlantic blizzard of 2016.

Technical details (more to come).  D800, manual focus and exposure.  I exposed for the highlights - and opened up the shadows in Lightroom.  For time lapse I use JPG FINE rather than raw - it allows many more exposures on a single memory card.  Interval timer set at one exposure every 30 seconds.

The time lapse was made in Adobe Premier.  The trick to making simple time-lapse is to have all the images sequentially numbered in a single folder.  Then, when you import them into Premier, you select the first one and check the "Image Sequence" box and Premier will import the whole series as a single clip.  The default is one frame per second, but you can change that by right-clicking on the clip and selecting Speed/Duration.

That's it for now.  I'll update this post with step by step instructions and screen shots later.  

Enjoy!

Way cool! Best part was watching the shadows of the trees move across the snow in the latter part of the segment. Looking forward to the step by step post.
