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.
