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.

Setting Up Campsite
Thursday, November 1st, 2018 at 23:24:59
Shot taken every 15 seconds, 160 seconds (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.

I took my old Nikon D800 out so I could record video and take stills at the same time. Unfortunately, the new charger doesn't charge old batteries.

Good Creek Fire
Saturday, August 25th, 2018 at 21:56:59
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
Saturday, August 25th, 2018 at 21:56:59
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.

Clairas First Bike Ride
Saturday, September 9th, 2017 at 14:03:14
This was Claira's first day riding a bike! We had practiced on this bike before (It used to be Nara's) but today she was able to do it without Dad holding on. She had two fall downs, but was a trooper and got up quickly to keep riding. Nara kept giving her High Fives because I think it means Nara can ride her bike more on outings.

I couldn't take this as video as I was often running behind her and I don't have a steady cam.

Milky Way From Whytecliff Park
Sunday, September 3rd, 2017 at 18:30:08
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.

Waiting For Fireworks
Sunday, September 3rd, 2017 at 18:29:50
I took a photo every 30 seconds for about an hour and a half. I changed the exposure 4 times and then fixed the exposure in post.

Lytton Waterslide
Monday, August 28th, 2017 at 00:43:53
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.

The dust spots on the sensor are kind of painful.

Nara On Monkey Bars
Thursday, October 27th, 2016 at 22:45:42
Nara has calluses on her palms from playground equipment. You would think she works with a pick axe all day. A week later on the same monkey bars she blistered one of the calluses. No monkey bars for her for a while.
