All my previous videos have been created with my trusty (and more importantly waterproof) GoPro cam., today I also brought along my DSLR.
I expected to get a little wet today but sadly I missed quite a bit of footage due to a misty lens on my GoPro and the batteries giving up the ghost earlier than expected. I did have my DSLR as the secondary cam but its not built for the elements so its usage was very limited.
All the problems aside the quality location made this an enjoyable to trip to find some quality caches.
I’ve been meaning to try out the time lapse feature on my GoPro, the intention was to catch a misty sunrise at a place called Stanton Moor near the town of Matlock, England.
I set my alarm for 3am and was on location at 4am, the sunrise time was around 5.30am but heavy fog put a stop to that. This first sequence shows the fog starting to break around 6-6.30am.
Moving on to the second sequence I relocated to the nearby Nine Ladies stone circle, the intention was to capture the full 360 turn but after multiple attacks by some rogue sheep this small sequence is result.
The third and final sequence was a quick 15min opportunist shoot while I was heading back to the car, ironically its seems to be the best of the bunch.
The GoPro offers some great time lapse features but I think it struggles with low light and an attempt to enhance the resulting image in Lightroom resulted with unacceptable image noise.
