On 12th December 2011, a storm approaches Bar Beach, NSW from the south.
This video was a test of a technique and was composited from a series of still images. A neutral density filter and polarising filter were both used in order to allow 4 second exposures, hopefully capturing some lightning in the process.
This technique would work most effectively when it’s even darker, so the lens can be opened up a bit and longer exposures used.
A first test of the video capabilities of the Canon 7D. The time lapse was created using the Twixtor plug-in for After Effects, and the video was composited in Sony Vegas
