my (amateur) photography adventure



Cloudscape – timelapse frames

I discovered this forgotten timelapse, shot about a year ago, recently.

I’m unsure how well it will work as a timelapse with the people walking through frame irregularly, but it should be interesting.

The cloud and light is quite beautiful – check out these frames:

Jacaranda season

Getting a couple of timelapse shoots in before the flowers drop. I reckon that they’ll all be gone by next weekend.IMG_7297.JPG


Jacarandas timelapse

Making the most of a day off – here is my setup for a dusk timelapse with the jacarandas in full bloom.

Edit: looking gorgeous now:


Circular Quay timelapse

Here is a preview image showing my setup at Circular Quay. Shooting with a 10mm (16mm equivalent) lens so should be interesting!Circular Quay-7144

Full Moon Rise at dusk

This frame shows my timelapse setup – see the lens barrel at left. Should turn out nicely thanks to the cooperative cargo ship :)


Caloundra – Setup shots for timelapse


A couple of shots illustrating my setup for 2 short timelapses this morning.


Cotton Tree Timelapse frames

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I shot a timelapse yesterday at Cotton Tree – a beautiful (and popular!) spot where the Maroochy River flows into the Pacific Ocean.

Enjoy these frames – the timelapse video should be available in a few days :)

Froggies Beach timelapse frames






First & last frames

First & last frames, and a setup picture, from several of my recent Timelapse attempts.

I expect that some of them have not worked out well enough to be worth the effort of compiling them into Timelapse videos, but I learn something each time I attempt one!


4.19am: first frame. 5.19am: last frame


Rainbow Bay timelapse

Setup pictures and some early frames from a sunset timelapse of Rainbow Bay beach (taken from Snapper Rocks).

Sunset was not very colourful but the early frames still have plenty of beauty :)






Storms at Sunset

Storms at sunset: a Queensland summer tradition.

Early frames from a time lapse.

Sunset in 1:13

This is the video I mentioned yesterday – 2152 photos in 1:13 – (best viewed fullscreen – this is 1080p HD video).  Enjoy!

“Argyle” sunset timelapse

2013-12-27 14.53.07Stills from my timelapse shoot yesterday evening at the family farm “Argyle”.

This deserted old worker’s cottage made a perfect focus object.

Compiling the timelapse video now and I’ll post it – if it’s any good!

Brisbane River XXXX timelapse

1289 photos in 42 seconds – check out this short timelapse sequence shot last night (best viewed fullscreen – this is 1080p HD video):

Check out the red XXXX sign in the background.

Timelapse Stills from 23 Nov

I hope you enjoy these frames from my timelapse project last night.

I had some serious trouble with the new Triggertrap app v 2.0, which is causing a few problems with the timelapse sequence – but I think I will be able to salvage something worthwhile from them.


fellow photography nuts: check this out – should be awesome.
