Cool. I see some nice night shots with long exposures where you presumably used a tripod. But what makes them time-lapsed?

Nice collection, I thought the fireworks, waterfalls and cityscapes were excellent especialy the first Lilly falls and the reflective harbor scene.

they are long exposure, therefore time lapse. Clearly you think my definition is incorrect (youre probably right.) ... but why bait in that manner? Deal with it.

btw, no 95% of them were just rested on something ... only a couple used a tripod such as the kings park ones.

FYI Time lapse photograpy is defined as multiple images taken (like a movie) at anything slower than 24 frames per second
Time Lapse defined

This is not to bait anyone or correct anyone but I thought you might want to know.

"Long exposure" or "Available light" photographs might be more correct if you are interested.

darb.net, there was no sarcasm or contempt in joshb's post.

In photography, 'time lapse' is defined as consecutive exposures superinposed so they change every few seconds depicting minutes, hours or even days between exposures.

You must have seen on television clouds that move really fast over cities, flowers that open their petals in seconds, etc. That is time lapse photography.

The beautiful shots you presented here are called 'time exposures' in the photography world, usually one second or longer exposures to make a single picture. Often used in pictures of water rushing over rocks, which instead of freezing the motion of the water, gives it that smooth running feeling.

So please forgive us for misunderstanding your intent, but I also was clicking all over the page trying to make the image move.

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Hey darb, just thought you'd enjoy these time exposures of groomers out doing their thing. I took these images of myself and others grooming while working at Red Mountain and Whistler over the last 15 years. I used a tripod, locked the shutter open on Bulb (using a remote release cable) at f 11 - f 16 and shut off the meter (to save battery).

If you're out some night at Hotham, set up and give it a try. Talk to the groomers to see what they have in mind for the night then buy them a beer in the morning. With luck you might just shoot something cool.

unreddave : you complete bastard. You've totally sunk my ship [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Josh B : never mind, took your comment the wrong way.

Hey darb.net,

Sorry mate, didn't mean to rain on your parade, just wanted to show you what is possible when you take time exposures to the extreme.

One tip: don't go out and buy a new camera. Buy a second hand 35mm SLR that you won't mind leaving out in the elements for hours at a time. No point in ruining a good camera. You never know when it's going to start snowing, raining or grow legs...

Cheers, Dave

Being on the grooming crew does make for some good oportunities with photos, full moons & sunsets are are good from the top of the mtn.

Hey Dave how went the cat skiing this year?
post #20 of 22
Thanks darb, no worries.

Hey Ben. I had a great winter, got in quite a few turns and the back was 100%. Really sad that it's over. 4 months of snow vs. 8 months of dirt. If only it were the other way around...

Cheers,
Dave
