Timelapse – 1st attempt

Took about 157 timelapsed images of the sun setting behind the Tarrytown Lighthouse in New York.  One shot every 30 seconds over about 1.5 hours only provided enough footage for about a 4 second clip.  I slowed the video down to 15 FPS, resulting in a longer but choppier clip.


Some lessons learned:  Shoot AV mode if light conditions are changing quickly (e.g. sunset), and shoot a tighter interval if you want enough footage to slow down the video and still keep it smooth (can always delete extra images).  I may start bringing an extra camera to set up on the side just for timelapse.
