It is no secret that I love taking photographs of the sky, but taking my Canon 7D with me is not always possible. The camera you have on you most often is actually the best camera you have. And with the Nokia Lumia 920 I’m in good company…
This category is for all things relating to video and photography.
Last weekend I had my first play with taking photographs of our closest star through fellow astronomer Martin Whipp’s telescope *. After I’d taken a load of photographs I thought I’d just start off a video and see what happens.
Coincidently an aeroplane ‘photobombed‘ the shot by flying between me and the Sun. Here it is slowed down to one quarter speed. Pretty cool, right?
* Never point any kind of optical equipment at the sun unless you have a special filter! It’s very dangerous and could damage your camera, or worse – your eyes.
Well it has been a few months since I did a video of Rain in Slow Motion, but here’s something a little more interesting… FIRE!
This video was taken with my Canon 7D then slowed down.
It rained again this weekend. My previous attempt at creating a video of the rain was interesting, but I thought I’d try for a different approach this time.
This video was taken with my Canon 7D and then slowed down with Windows Live Movie Maker. Oh, and I also made the soundtrack.
It rained this weekend, lots. As an experiment I thought I’d try to do a time lapse video of the rain drops.
This video was created with 200 photographs taken 5 seconds apart with my Canon 7D. The result was interesting, I think I’d like to try it again – maybe when it’s darker.
I created another cool time-lapse video last week, and I think this one came out pretty well. As you can see, it’s not of the sky this time. Instead we get to see the busy life of the Branded3 offices in Aberford. Oh and the awesome music is supplied by Mike Jeffs. Good job.
