Vancouver From Burrard Dock Pier
Saturday, January 2nd, 2021 at 22:23:54
This was shot at 42mm. I took a photo every 10 seconds from 6:28am to 8:18am - 664 frames. Exposure started at f5.6 8 second (under exposed 1 and 2/3rds stops) and ended at f14, 1/50th of a second. I like to under expose and bring it up in post so that I can keep detail in the bright areas.

Sunrise At Jerhicho Pier
Saturday, January 2nd, 2021 at 22:23:52
This is 438 Photos taken 11 seconds apart. I started at 6:20am and sunrise was at 7:37am. The previous week I went to Jericho to photograph birds and noticed a great sunrise. This week the sunrise was windy but just ho-hum light. That said, I did see some nice shore birds this week which I didn't see last week. Lens was set to 40mm if it helps.

Milky Way From Whytecliff Park
Wednesday, December 30th, 2020 at 01:25:20
90 frames x 30 seconds each is roughly 45 minutes of tripod time. I first started shooting at 13 second exposures and it took me a few minutes to realize my mistake (those frames were discarded). The camera wasn't very level when I shot it (hard to get right when so much of the frame is black) so these images are cropped.

Moonrise Over Olympic Village
Sunday, November 22nd, 2020 at 16:38:39
This is a pretty tight crop out of images shot at 28mm.
Photography for this sequence started at 7:42pm and lasted 242 frames (roughly every 8 seconds) until 8:14pm. As the sun fell, the exposure the moon became over exposed.
Exposure started at f8, 1/400th of a second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)
Exposure ended at f7.1, 1/13th of second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)

Olympic Village Sunset And Moon Rise
Sunday, November 22nd, 2020 at 16:38:39
This is the fill images shot at 28mm.
Photography for this sequence started at 6:59pm and lasted 929 frames (roughly every 8 seconds) until 9:02pm. As the sun fell, the exposure the moon became over exposed.

Exposure started at f22, 1/400th of a second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)
Exposure ended at f5.6, 1.3 seconds, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)

In post, I brighten the image, but keep the whites and highlights down. If you expose correctly, you generally get blown out skies and highlights.

Sunset At Fishermans Wharf
Sunday, November 22nd, 2020 at 16:38:39
This turned out to be more tricky that I was expecting. This was 998 frames starting at 7:01pm on April 19th (1/400 of a second at f11), ending at 9:14pm (5 second exposure at f5). It was shot at 28mm. The camera is in shutter priority and I drop the shutter time in half again and again as the lighting gets dark.

The tricky part was that I was on a floating dock and I didn't realize at the time, but every time I moved, the dock shifted. I used Fiji to register the images, but my Mac only have enough RAM (16GB) to do 1/3 of the video at a time.

Ferry Wharf At Granville Island
Sunday, November 22nd, 2020 at 16:38:39
This dock is normally quite busy with sea bus customers, but with Covid, that is all shut down. I started taking photos at 7:23pm (1/100 at f20) and ended 621 frames later at 8:46pm (2.5 seconds at f10).
The dock is so large that me walking around didn't change the camera pointing angle.

Moonrise On Sunshine Coast
Friday, October 30th, 2020 at 21:04:01
675 images, taken 10 seconds apart. First photo was 6:59pm, Last photo was at 8:51pm. This sequence had a LOT of problems with flickering. I used LRTimelapse to clean up the exposure and then used the three frame blend trick and I still had flickering.

Best Of Chinatown Parade 2020
Sunday, February 2nd, 2020 at 17:18:45
Nara shot this on her ner new phone she got Christmas. She shot about 20 videos, averaging a minute in length and then we edited that down to about 6 clips. This video is about 36 seconds long including the transitions, edited on a really old version of iMovie.

Saiwash Rock Sunset
Tuesday, December 31st, 2019 at 12:27:52
You can see the tide is going out over the course of this video. There was a Great Blue Heron fishing from the rock but it did eventually fly away.
354 pictures, taken between 9:03pm and 10:34pm, roughly every 16 seconds.

Fort Langley Campfire At Sunset
Tuesday, December 31st, 2019 at 12:10:41
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.

Second Night Campfire
Tuesday, December 31st, 2019 at 12:10:41
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.

Setting Up Camp
Monday, November 25th, 2019 at 21:48:58
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
Monday, November 25th, 2019 at 21:48:58
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.
