San Francisco Timelapse

Posted by barnoid Fri, 30 Jul 2010 22:08:03 GMT

Six hours and 14 minutes of the view from our room in the Marriot on Fourth Street. 702 photos taken with a Canon PowerShot S2 IS running CHDK, batch processed with Imagemagick then movied with mencoder. Featuring a moonset followed by dawn resulting in a fade to white. The fade is unintentional, it’s due to me accidentally leaving the camera in shutter priority mode, oops.

Church HDR

Church HDR
I passed St. John the Baptist’s Church on Palmeira Square in Hove on the way home from work and the full moon in the sky behind it reminded me of an HDR. So I made that HDR. This is made from two images 2EV apart. 35mm Porst prime f2.8 on a tripod. Processed in Qtpfsgui with pretty much all the default settings. Tone mapping was Mantiuk with Contrast Factor 0.3 and Saturation Factor 0.8

Lunar Eclipse 1

Lunar Eclipse 1
The eclipse in progress. Taken though zoom lens and cropped. As the moon got darker it became more difficult to hold the camera still enough to take pictures through the telescope. Some kind of camera-telescope attachment rig is needed.
