My very first take on time-lapse photography

My very first take on time-lapsed photography:

Melting ice

There is much much more that I can do to improve this of course,but overall I think I did a pretty good job. Taken during evening (7pm - 7.15pm) over a range of 15 minutes,5s interval on my trusty D90.
My improvement areas would be actually putting it on a tripod and getting a wireless shutter than sitting it on a ceramic counter. Oh yes,and using M mode instead of Non-Flash mode so as to create a better balance.

I was very much inspired by the video above. Checked with a few of my photographer friends,they said it's near impossible to do this in Singapore. Oh well,I better do more melting-ice images to hone my time-lapse photography skills before I go to Alaska. It would be a pity if I go there and miss my opportunity to capture the beautiful milky way that can be seen over there.

I must say,this really trains my patience. Staring at the clock seem to slow down time,but I love the images that turned out at the end. I can very well imagine myself in Alaska,sitting down with a cup of hot chocolate to keep myself warm,clicking away the shutter button while admiring the stars.


This image & blog post is made possible by ASUS N-series laptop,thanks to its high-speed performance was I able to create this piece of art without any hindrance. Click here to see what's new in ASUS.
