Fun Times with Time-Lapse

this is the Interstate 5 Aquaduct Vista Point. The name may not fit but that’s what its called on the map. located just west of Newman California, this rest stop offers a panoramic view of the valley.
I shot this with my D5600 and I set it for 3 second intervals for about 45 minutes on a sunny and (initially) cloudy day. I didn’t have a lot of luck as the clouds dissipated soon after I started shooting and the wind caused to camera shake. but nothing that couldn’t be fixed in post, along with the typical time-lapse flicker issues that are typical of these kinds of videos

360 Valley View

my first foray into the photosphere world turned out to be a lot more work then I was planning¬†for, as it turns out it’s a bit more complex then a panorama.¬† but I did accomplish what I set out to do and I learned a lot in the process. I used the google street view app to take the photo, I also took a few panoramas just in case I had stitching issues, which I did. and I used pano2vr to convert between formats and photoshop to edit, I’ll go into more details about all that in a future post.

it was a good day for photos, blue skys with cumulus clouds all day so I took advantage of the opportunity and took some shots on and around Merced Falls road. there’s lots of scenic views of the valley out there.
