I went out earlier this morning to watch a bit of the Army 10 Miler race, which has over 21,000 folks running in it. I was also playing with a new digital camera, so I ended up creating this time-lapse video of over 1,200 photos representing 42 minutes (one still every 2 seconds). That’s how long it took for everyone to pass by me (at just mile 1.25, before people really spread out!).
Here it is on Vimeo (in Hi-Def no less!):
For those curious on the technical deets:
Taken on 10/4/2009 (Sunday) from 8:07AM to 8:49AM on the Memorial Bridge in Washington DC (mile marker 1.25ish). Shot with a Canon 7D DSLR camera using a 18-55EFS lens. Photos taken every 2 seconds using a remote control timer, totaling 1,226 photos taking up 7.54GB – for this one series alone. Photos bulk post-processed in Adobe Lightroom, sequenced using Apple QuickTime Pro and then final ‘movie’ put together using Windows Live Movie Maker.
More on the rest of the weekend in a bit…(including a few more time-lapses from the day…and some cupcakes)
