Time-lapse clips from the balcony – Exploring the many possibilities

“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion.” – Eckhart Tolle

The sky is getting a little interesting around here again….or perhaps I am finally getting a little chance to see it and capture it! As you might know, I have experimented with the art before and shared it here on the blog. There are many ways to create these clips and I am just barely scratching the surface on what is possible. From the D800, the iPhone (what captured the still below), the GoPros, and many other small video recorders out there, the possibilities are getting pretty exciting!

Here is a little piece I created the other day and posted on my youtube channel from the results of a quick edit of clips from 4 different cameras capturing the South FLorida sky. I am pretty lucky to have a space that has a nice covered patio/balcony to set up and play from time to time, so I am sure I will be sharing a few more of these soon.

And here is a quick one I posted about the D800 and its built in time-lapse ability. For me, one of the main reasons I decided to pick this up last year.

I chat a little bit about the cameras and my process below. As always, I appreciate the feedback!

As you can see from the video below, the possibilities for creating amazing art with time-lapse these days are within the reach of the average photographer and enthousient out there. Never has there been a more exciting time to dream, create, and share your art with the world.

Enjoy that!

A much deeper dive will happen soon on the process’s I use to create these, but until then…it’s time to keep playing!

Also, here are a few links from a few things I was chatting about on the audio recording. A couple are affiliate links, but most are just really cool links to possible tools to take your time-lapse creations to the next level!
