Time lapse video is the process of shooting a single frame, waiting a while,…shooting another frame, waiting a while, and so on and so forth and taking all…those frames and stitching them together or sequencing them together into a movie. …What you get is a greatly accelerated sense of time.…You can do HDR time lapse by shooting a bracketed set of frames, waiting…a while, shooting another bracketed set of frames, and so on and so forth…at regular intervals.…I got this out the front window of my apartment a few years ago and the…process is pretty simple.…
Once you're setup for it, then there's just a tremendous amount of processing you have to do.…I put my camera on a tripod.…I open the window. I knew that there was going to be a lot of weather blowing…through that day because there had been the previous couple of days.…I got an intervalometer for my camera.…It's basically a remote control.…Like a remote shutter release, but this particular one also has the ability to…program it to take a picture at regular intervals.…
