This blog is a companion to my main motorcycle blog "Tales from the Road" (link on right)

It is mostly photographs taken during my travels by motorcycle.

Time Lapse - Jan/Feb 2013

I've been making time lapse movies for some time. I use a webcam and VideoVelocity demo program. If the sky has interesting clouds I run it all day and check the results. They are then edited into a movie using Windows Live Movie Maker. The webcam has to be set on fixed exposure to prevent it constantly re-adjusting. I set the program to capture an image every 5 seconds. Playback is 30 frames per second so the movie is 150x speed. The camera is out of a ground floor window so you'll occasionally see myself or the postman flashing past.

It's quite long so well done if you watch it all.
