On Sunday, I woke up at 4:40 and went to the Binghamton University Nature Preserve to film a time lapse of the sunrise.
This is isn’t that video.
That video was janky as hell because I used a janky as hell tripod. Everytime I moved the LCD screen or tried focusing, the tripod would shift.
So I went out on Monday to try again, this time with a better tripod. I find it kinda funny, ironic even, that my lightest tripod is the sturdiest. Any way, this is the end result.
Here’s some facts about the video for nerds:
I didn’t shoot in RAW
I used the intervalometer included with Magic Lantern
It took a brakceted photo every 45 seconds
This is HDR
I was a dick and decided to save the HDR photos as .tiff files.
250 photos = 27GB
The 10 second video rendered in after effects was nearly 13GB
The video exported from Premiere Pro is only 10MB
I woke up at 4:40, was situated bu 5:30 and took photos until 9.
The birds and the peepers get quiet after 9am
I finished reading “An Abundance of Katherines”
