Hymenocallis Timelapse

June 24, 2008

I’ve been meaning to experiment with the interval timer on my camera for quite a while. My first attempt was a failure because I forgot to put the cap on the viewfinder which allowed sunlight to enter and throw off the light meter. The other day I noticed that the second bud on our Peruvian Daffodil was about to open so I brought out the camera for a second try. This time I remembered the viewfinder cap and everything turned out much better. The shots were 30 seconds apart and I had it shoot 200 frames for a total of 100 minutes. The following video shows the whole thing about 720 times faster than it happened on our back porch.

    That’s pretty awesome. I should do something like that with some of my flowers.

    btw I’ve been to your blog a couple of times since you commented on mine and I never saw a comment link. Today I finally hit the link for this specific post and saw you had comments enabled. I guess your comment link doesn’t show on the main page until someone leaves a comment. Not sure if it matters to you but I thought I’d let you know.

    Thanks for the heads up. It looks like the theme that I’ve chosen only shows the comments link for the post at the top of the page.
