Tonight was my first attempt at time lapse photography. I’ve been wanting to do this for years but you soon discover that “time lapse” requires a huge commitment in time. I set my DSLR on a tripod, turned my settings to aperture priority, and pre-focused my lens and then turned autofocus off. The sunset was setting at 5:49p this evening, so I began taking timed exposures at around 5:10p at 4 second intervals for an hour and five minutes. The result is this 27 second video. It’s good start of more Chicago time lapse videos to come! Next time I will plan to set the timer a bit longer after sunset. Now, time to play with traffic and light trails!!
