http://www.vimeo.com/17859306 With a good weather forecast I got up early the other morning and headed down to the coast in the darkness to set up for a timelapse shot of the sunrise. At this particular spot the sunrise just peeps round the edge of the cliffs in the depths of winter. I was able to ascertain this from the comfort of home using the excellent TPE software (The Photographer’s Ephemeris). This tool for photographers lets you visualise the angles of sunrise, sunset, moonise and moonset in the context of the landscape on a google map/satellite image of your area of interest for any date of the year. I can see I’ll be using it a lot for planning landscape photography. The video shown is a series of 618 still images, taken with the Canon 5D Mark II with Canon 24-105mm f4 lens on a tripod and equipped with the TC 80N Timer Remote, set to take one image every two seconds. My settings were shutter speed 1 second, aperture f7.1 and I briefly stopped the series a couple of times to adjust the ISO as the light changed. Images were stacked into a movie with Quicktime 7 and graded and edited with Final Cut.
