I'm a huge fan of Time Lapse photography, going back to Koyanisqaatsi and similar, and even bigger fan of Philip Bloom's current work. I've been experimenting with it on my own with very limited success, it seems some of the tools that Quicktime Pro used to have to make assembling these easier have been removed in the move to Quicktime X, so I've basically sat on a few of the ones I did in the past until I could see what I've got and where to improve. Thanks to @lightroomblog & @vbampton I learned that the video export features in Lightroom 3 beta make this easy as pie. So I ran through their tutorial and came up with my first little attempt and a whole lot of lessons learned: Here's the instructions: http://lightroom-news.com/2009/10/28/direct-timelapse-video-export-from-lightroom/ Next time I'm going to do the following, for stars at least: -Put some landmark in for spatial reference -Put bigger chunks of time in between my clicks -Let it go longer -Try to avoid airplane flight paths (heh!) -Get a recognizable constellation, preferably Orion, which has always been my favorite I'm going to try doing some daytime events too after that. Love this stuff!
