Just for a change: Some time-lapse photos I took on holiday!

Hi all,

I did say I’d make posts more often, but I’ve had a very busy Summer if that counts as a decent excuse XD

Anyways, I thought I’d do something a bit different this time, and make a post on some time-lapse photography I did while I was on holiday in Cyprus earlier this year. There are some pretty good ones, and as always, a few duds. I did all of these by pointing the camera at some kind of light source, like streetlights, and then moving it during exposure. My camera only did exposures of 8 seconds, so it was quite difficult to make some of them interesting, but I think they turned out okay 🙂

Photos taken with old camera

My first attempt at a time-lapse, which is actually not too bad!

The 2nd try, finding the streetlights in the distance, and then moving it to the left, I think.

I think this one has some rotation, but I can't remember XD The white is from the reflection of the Sun's light off the moon.

I can't remember how I did this at all XD

This one was just simple rotation with the moon and streetlights. I hadn't noticed the weird blurry cloudy effect by the streetlights until just now.

I can't remember how I did this either. Maybe it was shaking from side to side and accidentally moving forward or backward a bit?

I really like the reddish haze around the left side of this one.

This is the light from a swimming pool, it's a bit of a dud XD

Photos taken with new camera

A while after my holiday, I got a new camera and took some different photos trying the same thing:

Conclusion

I did mean to post this a long time ago, like months ago. I forgot XD I hope you liked these photos, and I have some more news to share with you soon as well. By soon, I mean next week perhaps, I’ll seriously try to get it done this time, but I do have a lot going on right now 🙂
