Time Lapses

Just before this past winter started I bought an intervalometer, a little device that plugs into one's DSLR and allows it to shoot a set number of pictures at set intervals.  It makes shooting time-lapse videos quite easy, but once winter hit I hibernated indoors and didn't get much use out of it last year.

With the introduction of Spring though I started getting out again, and after many, many mistakes, finally came up with a few worth looking at.

This first is a sunrise down in Jamestown, RI from a few weeks ago looking towards the Newport bridge.

This one is a sunset last night at Beavertail State Park (a little southwest of Jamestown).

Although the original was larger and square, I'm very pleased with the circular cropping and the added texture around the border, courtesy of Night Shade Books.

Here's what it looks like without:

It was a great opportunity and great fun to work on, so hopefully more to come!  In the meantime, feel free to go ahead and purchase the novel:
