I love the South West Coast of Victoria, it is the area I grew up in. Winter weather being extremely volatile along this rugged coast makes it all the more rewarding when you you are fortunate enough to get a window of clear sky. I Managed to get a single clear day in a week while staying with family which just happened to coincide with a new moon. I headed to one of my favourite dark sky spots in the area to see what I could capture, using very low level constant lighting on the beautiful sandstone cliffs in the foreground. Unfortunately I arrived about an hour after I had intended and was only about an hour into the session when a very thick sea fog rolled in and completely drowned out all visibility of the sky.
There is something magical about adding motion to timelapse sequences, even more so for a nightscape timelapse sequence. How is this motion added though? In this video I take a high level look at the tools I use in my work flows to produce motion in my timelapse sequences. This is the first part in what will become a multi part series on the various devices as well as “hacks” and post processing techniques.
