OBX – Skies
I have recently been working on creating time lapses of clouds and the milky way. The latter I have been rather unsuccessful with, as the d90’s high ISO is pretty crappy. The former, however, has had much success. The process is not overly complicated, so long as I can manage to take a bunch of photos without interruption.
This video was shot in Hatteras, NC while I was on vacation, from my observation deck. Photographs were taken over 1 hour, 18 minutes, with 1 photo every 7 seconds. Shot with a d70s, using gphoto2 as my intergalometer. I used ffmpeg to generate the video. I do recommend watching it here, on vimeo where you can see it in HD.
Of course, I also took photographs of clouds and the milky way.
I did not edit the saturation of this photo, I think it might be an effect of photomatix. This is a 3-exposure stacked HDR.
Here is one photograph of the milky way that turned out ok by itself. 30 second exposure at ISO 800.
This one is stacked from 5 photographs, each 30 seconds @ ISO 1000.
