Is this even allowed?
« on: April 14, 2018, 06:33:04 AM »

Morning all.

Do landscape time-lapses even count as photos?  Whatever, here's one: https://youtu.be/keIgkmJ4lcI.  It's in 4K, therefore watchable on your snazzy UHD monitor.

C&C appreciated.

You mean Moving Pictures? I think we're on to something...perhaps sound, someday! LOL. Yes, time-lapses sequences are photos. Understand this is LULA, and this topic could start a war. I shalll remain a noncombatant.

That is a very cool time-lapse.

If anyone complains, you could always post the individual images, a max of four per post.   ;)

If they're of that quality, you'll have no complaints from me. Not sure about sound, though. New-fangled nonsense.

Thanks all.  I'm glad time-lapses are permitted because I love making them.  Although they would be impossible (or rather, just prohibitively expensive) to make without digital cameras and modern video editing software, in some ways they take me back to the old days of film photography where you had to be super careful about exposure, focus  and framing because you really only had one chance to make the shot, and you didn't know if you had nailed it until many hours or days after the fact.  Chimping wasn't really a thing, and even exposure bracketing seemed like an expensive indulgence.  In the case of an outdoor time lapse you have to guess what the weather and light will be doing for the next couple of hours, set an exposure which hopefully won't clip too much, and then wait for a couple of hours in the cold, hoping for the best.  So a lot of effort, but worth it when it turns out OK.

If they're of that quality, you'll have no complaints from me. Not sure about sound, though. New-fangled nonsense.

Hmm, I kind of get what you are saying, but in my view a silent time-lapse is just kind of odd.  But if you disagree, then you know where the volume control is  ;D

I like time-lapse.
What I like in this one is the moment I thought, ok I saw it all, the sky ominously darkens and then it stops, leaving me with questions, did it stop due to battery failure? Card full, or did the lightning hit your 1k$ carbon tripod?  8) Questions, Question. En that is good, often a time-lapse is what it is, a time laps, but this leaves open question. p.e. the walking couples, did they make it whiteout a wet suit or did they had to find shelter in an abandoned shed where there is a young long hairy girl waiting to come out the old water pit.......

.....hm, apologyze, it is my imagination, I guess

Thanks all for the positive comments.  I love making time-lapse, and I'm planning to make more.

In answer to Ivo's questions: I stopped shooting because it was getting dark, it was about to rain, I was freezing cold, and the dog was getting restless.   I didn't want to start adjusting exposure on the fly, and the histograms were getting all bunched up to the left, so I called it a day. 

Sadly I don't have a $1K carbon tripod.  Mine is an aluminium beater from the mid jurassic period.  Heavy as hell, but it doesn't blow away.  Camera is an ancient 5D mark 1 which I use for time-lapses because when the shutter eventually fails one day I won't cry about it.

Nice stuff Ed!

... do I sense a ban coming on "noisy photos"?!

P. S.

Is that an argument for Cretaceous era wooden tripods?

Yes, I found the time-lapse sound worked extremely well and added to the drama.
