Clairas First Bike Ride
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
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
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.

Waiting For The Northern Lights
The dust spots on the sensor are kind of painful.

Porteau Cove Facing North
The flow is from Squamish. There is one asteroid streak in this movie.

Star Trails Facing North At Porteau Cove
These are 30 second exposures stacking in photoshop. There are 75 images here so about 37 and a half minutes. (It's actually longer because there is a gap between one image ending and the next starting. The bright stars on the right are the handle of the big dipper.

You can see a single shooting star in this image.

Looking South Over Ferry Jetty
This is a shorter exposure than North - 72 exposures, roughly 36 minutes. I thought the glow from the city would be worse than this, but the city is around the corner with a mountain in the way.

You can see some airplanes near the horizon - they are likely going to YVR. You can also see that the equator is roughly in this image - the south pole is well over the horizon.

Siwash Rock Making Star Trails
This is a 100 image, 30 seconds an image time lapse. I was planning on stacking them and lightening them to get star trails but the clouds flying by made that much harder than I anticipated.

This is a 15 frames per second video.

Thunderstorm Over Vancouver
I really like that you can see the stars at the top of the frame for roughly half of the movie. This is roughly 200 frames at 20seconds each (every 21 seconds) for a little over an hour of time. The camera ran out of battery power as it wasn't fully charged when it started.

Clouds Rolling Over Downtown From Cypress
This is 215 images at 10 seconds each - roughly 35 minutes elapsed. I had to stop because the exposure what out of range - I could no longer take 10 seconds exposures.

The exposure was shot auto and then corrected in post which wasn't easy. There is some motion in the tripod - I think got warmer or I touched it a bit. I corrected the motion in post. I have blended the images to make this a 45fps video and to try and remove some of the residual brightness flickering.

Nara Claira And John Playing
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.
