Time lapse of Kluane Lake and Sheep Mountain after Spring storm. I took over 5400 pictures in a period of 7.5 hours until my cameras batteries died...right before sunset! The pictures were taken from the Kluane Bed and Breakfast near Silver City along the Alaska Highway in Canada's Yukon Territory. I used my Olympus SP-500UZ point-n-shoot controlled via USB with Cam2com to shoot. Quicktime Pro to edit the image sequence into a movie and import the audio. The music is "Dialogue du vent et de la mer" by Debussy, public domain from musopen.com, I trimmed it and edited in a fade out with Audacity. Oh ya, and I borrowed Dougie's tripod. So all in all for my second attempt at time lapse and with a non-pro camera and only $30 in expenses (QTpro) I am feeling pretty darn pleased with myself! Hope you enjoy. No Magpies or Whiskyjacks were harmed during the making of this film. One cat was made anxious...nobody really minded.
Any advice on how to improve would be great! Thanks!
