A few days ago I started fooling around (again) with Magic Lantern. ML is firmware for my camera which makes it do all sorts of things it wasn’t designed to do! Magic Lantern enabled me to get hummingbird close-ups. Now I’m using it for timelapse photography.
This is the norm for me. Once I get a new tool I use it obsessively until I’ve mastered it.
I set my camera up at the end of our street. Cloud timelapses almost beg for a wide angle photography. I used a 10mm lens tilted up to catch lots of sky. Magic Lantern took one frame every second, producing a video 30 times normal speed.
The hills in the background are part of the Loma Ridge, foothills of the Santa Ana range.
Here’s the result of my effort. Click the box to watch it full screen.
