One Year Time Lapse in the life of an Oak Tree

Mon April 25, 2011


From mikebrown320

Having to wait one year before you can show your time lapse video shows patience and dedication. Not sure how many times Mike Brown went back to the same spot to photograph the same Oak tree, but I counted at least 16 different photos.

It’s in fact a nice project to have: select a scene, mark a spot on the ground for your tripod (easier if you’re taking the picture from your porch or inside the house through a window), set your camera’s lens to wide-angle (or mark down the focal length you used), and then come back at least once a month to take a picture for 12 pictures. Take one picture a week and you’ll end up with 52 pictures. It’s preferable to take each picture at the same time of day.

International Pinhole Photography Day April 24

Sun April 24, 2011

April 24 is the International [Worldwide] Pinhole Photography Day. I guess you are supposed to go make yourself a pinhole camera and, if you are motivated to do so, there are lots of videos and instructions online on how to make one. Search our archives for some of the most interesting ones. In fact, here is a colorful one from Corbis (with more fanciful ones to choose from).

The idea behind a pinhole camera is simple: a black box with a small hole to let the light in. The smaller the hole, the greater the depth of field, hence the sharper the image — though the longer the exposure required. Here’s a video on how to build yourself a digital pinhole camera… the lazy way.


From TheStar

Or, if you’re like me, just switch to Pinhole Scene Mode, and you’d be done for today! Digital has its advantages.

Two Minute Time Lapse Videos

Fri April 22, 2011

I hope we are not starting a new fad with the two-minute time lapse video.

First, there was the SF to Paris video (2:04):

One picture taken roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco and landing in Paris. More detail at: Beep Show.

Then, Philip Bloom decides to have a go at Vegas to London (3:20):
