While on the Pika Glacier this summer, I experimented a bit with the Interval Shooting option on the Nikon D200. With this feature, you can set the pararmeters of how often you want the camera to fire, how many frames you want the camera to shoot each time, and how many total shots you want the camera to take. Needless to say, this option is best utilized when the camera is on a tripod. Interval shooting allows a world of very interesting photographic possibilities and with a little creativity, it can be used to make time lapse videos.
For this particular project, I shot two different series of one hundred images each, and then using a variety of Apple software, (iMovie HD, Logic Pro 8, and Compressor) I created a Quick Time movie of the still images, scored it with some original music, and then exported the project to mpeg format.
