I was in Iceland recently leading my Winter Landscapes & Auroras workshop and I had the good fortune to be there for a near total solar eclipse.
You can actually see the shape of the partially eclipsed sun in the lens flare on my friend’s parka.
In addition to taking close-up still shots like I did for the last eclipse, I also wanted to shoot a time lapse sequence that showed a wide view of how the landscape was transformed by the fading light as the sun was eclipsed, and then its gradual return to the full brightness of daylight.

Moving time-lapses are a fun way to record a long duration of time and compress it into several seconds. And it’s easy to spend a lot of money on equipment to get the movement you want in your shots.
This week on Video Gear Weekly, I provide some affordable options that allow you to get the most bang for your buck when shooting a moving GoPro time lapse.

Frank Lloyd Wright used to say there are two kinds of people: nesters and perchers. Nesters like to be tucked among woods; perchers prefer being high atop hills.
I’m a percher, especially when I’m on the road. In hotels, I always try to score an upper-floor room with a view. It’s great for cityscape photography and for one of my new photographic interests: time-lapse photography.
Inspired by Richard Harrington’s courses on time-lapse photography and on the GoPro HERO cameras, I’ve begun taking my GoPro camera and its suction-cup mount with me when I travel. When I check in to a room with a view, I know there’s a time-lapse movie in my future.
On a recent trip to Boston, my wife and I scored a room on the 36th floor of a hotel in the city’s historic Back Bay neighborhood. With views of Copley Square, the Hancock Tower, and some of downtown Boston’s busiest streets, it was a perfect perch for shooting this time-lapse video.

Clouds are a popular subject for time-lapse photography, and for good reason: The result can produce a fascinating display of billowing buildups or a time-accelerated flow of clouds across the frame. But there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when shooting clouds as a sequence of images you plan to assemble into a time-lapse video.

Though known mainly for fast-paced action footage, the versatile GoPro camera is widely used for many different tasks.

In this week’s installment of The Practicing Photographer, Ben Long combines two techniques that involve capturing the world in unique ways—ways that we can’t see with our eyes but that photography lets us bring to life.
One technique is high dynamic range, or HDR, photography. That’s the process of taking multiple shots of a scene, each with a different exposure setting, and then merging them into one photo that captures a broad range of bright and dark tones. Ben describes HDR in detail in his course Shooting and Processing High Dynamic Range Photographs (HDR).
