Normally I’m a Spokane Portrait Photographer, but lately I’ve been using my extra time to drive around to get back to my roots in Landscape photography. These last couple of weeks I have been getting more and more involved with time lapse night photography. I shoot with a Canon 60D in these videos and run Magic Lantern so I don’t have to manually fire the camera. people always ask me, “aren’t you afraid some thing will happen to your camera?” I let them know that I check the weather and forecast to be sure of lightning storms and rain. I have done that as well, leaving my camera up last week for the lightning storm that hit Spokane. I have really been meaning to get into the video aspect of Photography and these time lapses are how I am starting. I set this shot up off the back deck with my Canon 10-22. It takes a whole lot of research, reading, not taking, and trial and error to get it down and I myself am still working on perfecting the technique. The biggest aspect that I have found that helps me is to have the exposure auto adjust to account for light changes and the sun rising in the morning. I have also found that leaving my camera outside allows for things such as people turning on lights in the house not to affect the camera and its exposure. Being up on the South Hill allows me to get away from Spokane and Spokane Valley City lights as most Night Photographers dislike them due to flare and other annoyances. Let me know how you like this time lapse. If the sky is clear tonight I will attempt another as to reduce noise and grain in the image. Let me know how you like it and be sure to Share it with your friends!
