A few small intervals make for a great film.

At last months meeting of the Riverside Astronomical Society one of our members, Mark Melnyk, gave a great talk about time lapse photography.

If you don’t know, time lapse photography is where you take a bunch of individual images over a period of time, then put them together to form a movie.  Small intervals or long intervals.  It all depends on the length of the final product or the amount of frames you have taken.

Mark has some wonderful time lapse movies here.  Don’t worry, he doesn’t look like that in real life.


Shawn Malone of Lake Superior Photo put together this incredible video in her first attempt at time lapse photography.

Shawn Malone, I salute your effort and the awesome results of your year long efforts in the not so temperature friendly state of Michigan.
