I have always admired time lapse videos! I think it is one of the coolest effects you can do and I really love watching them. I wanna start doing my own time lapse videos so I looked at random videos on youtube to kinda get an idea of what to do and I came across the video above! That video is incredible. It is very well put together with the editing and music! I plan on doing a lot of my own time lapse videos soon. I’m going to Vegas next month and I will definitely be doing one while I’m there as well as other photos! The way I used to do time lapse videos never looked right.

That way kinda works but it definitely doesn’t work if you’re trying to do a sunrise/sunset or an extended period of time!  With a DSLR it’s so much easier and it actually works! I’ll post up my own time lapse videos when they’re created!
