Time Lapse, Sunset over Acadia National Park
Sunset and Rainbow - AcadiaTime Lapse photography gives me another tool when trying to express how I feel about a scene. This video showcases sunset over Acadia National Park.
Sometimes a single image is enough for me. I feel artistically satisfied. But there are times when I need to do more with the subject. Time lapse, video clips, iPhoneography are all choices. On location, I'm often juggling two cameras, tripods, iPhone to create a complete picture of the scene. In the past, I used a large format camera, and a single image was perfect, and developing the color film in the darkroom left me lots of creative license to interpret the transparency.
With digital photography, I have transitioned to a quicker pace, especially with the instant review on the LCD. That feedback helps me decide camera settings and review composition too. Once the time lapse sequence and interval is set up, I truly enjoy the location, as some sunsets, like this one, lasted 45 minutes.
Here's a time lapse sequence, photographed at the Ocean Benches, a detour off the Sundew Trail at Acadia National Park, on the Schoodic Peninsula. I set up my camera facing the setting sun over Bar Harbor and Acadia.
