An evening in seconds.
Days into minutes.
A timelapse is thousands of pictures made into a motion picture usually at an accelerated pace. On the visual scale, it sits between the still picture and the realistic movie. By changing the pace of an event, it summarized it and allows a different perception.
I started making timelapses in 2009 when my friend Phil moved from Edmonton to Toronto (A 3-day trip across Canada). I delayed ordering the timer for my Canon G10 from Hong Kong until it was too late. So I had to whip out the Electrical Engineering lab skills and the soldering iron to make my own from a MK111 timer kit the evening before departure.
This is the result of my first attempt: Toronto to Edmonton. This gallery contains a few other pictures made into movies.
