Way back in January I was playing around with this great software called gphoto. It allows you to attach your digital camera to your computer and take photos. This has many uses, one of which is to create time lapse movies by writing a script to take pictures every so often. So that’s what I did, one January night. I wrote a script to take a picture every 15 seconds or so, and set it to run from 6am to 6pm. Unfortunately, my battery died only an hour or two in, so I came out with an 11 second video of a partial time lapse sunrise.
