I’ve been working on a time lapsed scene tonight, but didn’t have much luck. I decided to pull one of them out and give you another version of the dinghies at sunset I posted earlier. It was amazing how much the sky lit up that night.
Bermuda can be tricky. Anyone here today knows that it was nice and hot and sunny over the weekend. Today was chilly and overcast. It didn’t look like there’d be any photo opportunities this evening. Then, as I was leaving the squash club, I could see that the sun was peeking under the clouds as it set. I thought I’d missed an opportunity as I pulled out. I had my camera gear in the car but didn’t think I’d make it anywhere in time. As I got closer to home, the clouds just kept getting brighter so I went to this spot not far from my house and hurriedly set up for a shot.
I took 7 photos bracketed from -3 through to +3 and combined them using Photomatix. To get a better idea of how I do this, check out my Free HDR Tutorial.
My First Time-Lapse!
I know I told you that my first time-lapse would be of an ice cube melting and that you’re all really excited to see that. Unfortunately, I’ve got to disappoint you. Yesterday, I shot a time-lapse of my friends as we cruised through Hamilton Harbor, Bermuda. The intervalometer was set to take a photo every 10 seconds. The end result is a 30 second video. I feel like it needs a sound-track, but can’t think of anything.
Today’s Photo: The Parrot in the Window
As a happy side effect of buying a second camera body, I took out one of my backup memory cards. Happily, I discovered some photos from New York I thought I’d managed to lose. Early in the morning, just before last Christmas I decided to set out and take some photos without anyone else around. The streets were empty as I’d expected. It was also really cold. Colder than I’d expected.
Bergdorf Goodman always has pretty extravagant window displays, so I decided to try to incorporate them in a few photos. I had seen a picture someone took on a train, where half the photo showed what was outside the window, the other half showed what was inside. This made me decide to try taking a similar approach with this shot.
