My Place in the Cosmos

My Place in the Cosmos from Joe Menth on Vimeo.
Timelapse clips from still long-exposure photographs shot with a 15mm f/2.8 fisheye and a 17-35mm f/2.8 on a Canon 5D MKII, exposures of 5 to 30 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 800-3200, depending on conditions, moon phase, and cloud cover...
Location primarily my backyard on Mutiny Bay, Whidbey Island, Washington.

Just stumbled upon timelapse techniques last summer and decided to give it a try. This contest was the first incentive to learn how to edit clips together on a time budget...

Most clips are quite late at night, as I'm a night owl and universe geek. My entire interest in timelapse grew from learning how to photograph starscapes, and these clips are mostly an excuse to get to watch the stars and milky way move overhead on an accelerated time scale that we don't get to experience any other way.
