So tonight it’s what I’m calling “Blue Moon Eve” and after reading about the “Blue Moon” I thought I’d see how awesome the moon looked tonight. Once I went outside I saw CLOUDS lots and lots of clouds! I took about 20 time-lapse shots and then cars kept coming down my street (yup, I was in the middle of my cul-de-sac with my tripod taking pictures of what looked like the side of my apartment building. As you can see in my other time lapses the sky has been this murky nastiness so seeing something new like this tonight I just had to get the camera out and get to snapping.
Here is the specs for this shoot:
On my Panasonic DMC-G7 I setup a 10 second interval with 5″ (second) shutter at 200 ISO with f5.6. I used the G Vario 1:3.5-5.6/14-42 kit lens. I ended up shooting about 278 photos (I would have done more but my battery was running out of juice) I set the LVF (live view finder) to only in the eye piece to save on battery. I then combined all the photos in-camera to make a 30 fps video file at 4K resolution. I uploaded it to YouTube for your viewing pleasure.
