Various ML Sunset Timelapses
« on: June 19, 2012, 08:32:34 PM »
This is a sunset timelapse I took using the standard intervalometer in ML on my 600D.

I tried bulb ramping and failed, to later realize I had to be in BULB mode...oops.  Hope to try again some day.


My (failed) timelapse of the May 20th Eclipse.  I had an ND filter and a CPL on the camera, and somehow made a lot of flare on the sun.  I shot at F18 if I recall correctly.  Any input appreciated on how to keep the sun from flaring like that.



Workflow:
Open Source!  Image Sequence -> Virtual Dub
Used VirtualDub to resize/crop to 1080p and encode to lossless for upload.
I'm using ML for photography with:
EOS 600D T3i - EF-S 18-55mm f4-5.6 IS USM (Kit)

It looks like it was only starting to eclipse as it reached the horizon. Particular lens handle lens flare better than others, but I think shooting directly into the sun is going to be very hard on any glass.
