Fireworks Time Lapse From Burrard Bridge
Saturday, September 21st, 2019 at 21:35:51
This was tricky. I had the camera in shutter speed priority until the fireworks started and then switched to manual mode to get a reasonable exposure.

This is 1071 frames shot 6 second apart for 107 minutes or 1 hour and 47 minutes. It is played back at 15 fps so it isn't all flashes and the boats don't look crazy fast. I wanted to take more photos after so you could see the rush of boats come back but a little girl needed to go pee.

Roadside Mining
Sunday, September 8th, 2019 at 22:28:32
There is a small deposit of pyrite in this rock face. The kids mostly broke the cubes out of the pieces already chipped off, but this mean the cubes they found were small.

We started taking photos at 3:21 pm and I took a photo every 6 seconds. I took 358 photos but I had to remove 75 photos where my low hanging shorts showed my underwear. I rendered it to 15 frames per second video because 30 fps make us look crazy. I stopped shooting at 3:56 and we left shortly after.

Setting Up Camp
Sunday, August 25th, 2019 at 09:25:52
This timelapse was inspired by a timelapse I did last year at Rathtrevor. I took a photo every 10 seconds starting at 5:00:38 pm and took 271 pictures (ended at 5:45:38). I made the same mistake as last year - I left the auto focus on so the camera refocused from time to time which on this lens changes the focal length (effectively zooms). To fix it I used the auto align layers command in photoshop which took approximately 18 hours to run. The auto align wasn't perfect, but it's an improvement.

The video was assembled at 15 frames per second which makes it just over 18 seconds long.

Beach Sky
Sunday, August 25th, 2019 at 09:25:52
Sky time lapses are hard. I started taking photos at 10:56:40 on July 21st and ended at 11:46:10. I took a photo every 33 seconds roughly for 92 exposures. The exposure was 30 seconds long.

The town on the horizon is Powell River.

Second Night Campfire
Friday, August 16th, 2019 at 23:39:59
642 Frames - started at roughly 1/4 of a second every 10 seconds, ended at 8 seconds every 10 seconds. I used silent mode that prevent you from seeing the exposure as it shoots (but is much quieter. I had to change the exposure on most of the frames to get the exposure to run smoothly and even then it was a bit of a mess.

Most of the kids are from the other tent's.

Fort Langley Campfire At Sunset
Friday, August 16th, 2019 at 23:39:42
394 Frames. The exposure kind of falls apart at the end so I had to do the blend two frames trick to stop the flickering.

Setting Up Campsite
Thursday, August 8th, 2019 at 20:26:15
Shot taken every 15 seconds, 160 frames (40 minutes) total. The popping in and out was because I left the camera with focus on so sometimes it focuses closer and that changes the effective focal length. My bad.

It's raining just a little bit. These are minibuses - they open up lots of smaller destinations in Hong Kong.

Lytton Waterslide
Monday, April 22nd, 2019 at 19:26:56
Have I mentioned this is one of my favorite pools in the whole world? Beautiful mountains all around, desert air, sometimes windy. It's a big pool with a shallow shallow end. The staff have always been really helpful. We have visited twice now.

Good Creek Fire
Monday, February 11th, 2019 at 07:17:20
The fire was started by a lighting strike the day before. The Okanagan Mountain Park fire was in the same general area so there wasn't much fuel left for this fire to burn.

I setup my tripod in the door of the car while I waited in the lineup to get to our camp site (close to the Mount Enas fire). This is a photo every 10 seconds. I needed to do quite a bit of stabilization in post because the tripod wasn't super stable.

Mount Enas Fire
Monday, February 11th, 2019 at 07:17:20
As we got closer to the Mount Enas Fire, we got a better view of the extent of it.

10 second gap between photos. Some stabilization between frame 10 and 150 when we weren't moving.

Terra Nova Sunset
Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 at 23:32:18
This is 334 images, one taken every 16 seconds (mistake #1). The exposure started at 1/4 of a second at f20 and ended at 15 seconds at f3.2. Shot ISO 100 the whole time. I missed 6 images because the exposure went from 15 seconds to 20 seconds so when it tried to reshoot 16 seconds later, it was still taking the previous image.

I had to change the exposure. I did that on the command line using lines from a spread sheet like exiftool -Exposure2012=-0.43 DSC_09999.dng .

The images are turned into a video on the command line using:

ffmpeg -framerate 15 -pattern_type glob -i 'DSC*.jpg' -c:v libx264 -filter "minterpolate='mi_mode=blend:fps=30'" -profile:v high -level 4.2 -pix_fmt yuv420p out_compat31.mp4

There were a few problems with this shoot - I didn't lock the exposure so it did change a little. The Autofocus is still on so sometimes you can see it change or hunt.
