Northern Lights Timelapse Experiment

I’m completely new to timelapse photography (videography?) and were experimenting with it a little bit during my last Finland tour as I thought northern lights would make a perfect subject for it. I captured several time-lapse videos and only back home I realized how many mistakes I made! Timelapse photography definitely isn’t easy! But anyway I would like to share my first attempt with you. I’m aware that it isn’t very good, but I firmly believe that sharing even not ideal work is part of a learning process. And besides, I think that northern lights look so much better in motion than in the static photos.

I hope it will be better next time as I really enjoyed experimenting with this technique and plan to use it more frequently from now on.

    I love it! What part exactly are you not happy with? For me the hardest part is to decide how long time to set between shots.

    I end up with a very stuttery time lapse most of the time.

    Thanks. I see several issues with it: too short clips (because I captured too few frames), I could set interval to a better value, and so on.
