Time Lapsed Photo Video

Time Lapse

Many, Many, Many photographs this weekend.  I went to the Memorial Day festivities and got some good shots, but spent most of my time on a time lapse series - took a photo an hour for the last day and half and got some good results on a flower opening and made an iPhoto slide show, but since they don't play well with other I'm having difficulties getting into a format where the music works as well so I can get it to YouTube and then on my Blog - I'll get it.  In the mean time here is a sneak peek...

Experimenting With Time Lapse

View Over the Camera

Goooooood Morning

I've started a new job (in addition to my other job) at another credit union where I am helping with their website and marketing.  I ordered a new white board - got it set up, left for the day and then found this yesterday morning.  It brightened my day!  Think I'll leave it up a while...

Batman Grooves to MJ

I've got video on my camera - haven't used it much, but thought I'd shoot a few seconds of Daniel grooving to Michael Jackson.

Grandson Sam was having a great time bouncing.  One of his favorite past times is to grab the hair on one of the dogs and bounce... it' s not one the dogs' favorite past time, but they tolerate it well (and keep their distance...).

Help Me!!

Help Me!!
Went to a Birthday Bowling Party one of the girls at work  was having for her 8 year old son - so I thought I'd get some "motion" pictures.  This ball just "kinda looked at me" over the rails and was pleading for help...

Photo Seminar

I went to a Photography Seminar yesterday sponsored by the Linn Area Photo Club.  Canon provided our presenter,  George D. Lepp (a Canon Photographer http://www.georgelepp.com) who kept nearly 300 people mesmerized with his photos, stories,  and techniques.

I picked up a new program, Rays, where you can add Rays to a photograph.  Here I added rays coming out of the Baptismal Font adding a different feel to the photograph. 

I also learned some new HDR techniques, some focusing and depth of field tricks and a lot of other ideas I am anxious to try.  Of course if I were to buy every piece of equipment he suggested, near as I can tell, it would be about $20K.  I'll stay on the low, low end.  I will definitely get a time lapse trigger for my camera, and possibly a lightening trigger - both are pretty cool.  So - stay tuned.
