Dawn over Carmel

Well, here lies my first attempt to time-lapse a sunrise. I honestly have no clue why there’s so much wobble as the tripod was stock still. Apparently some unknown wind of some sort. Anyway, a reasonable first shot, I suppose.

  1. loved the sunrise even with wobble 🙂

  2. The wobble can be caused by using an image stabilization lens on a tripod without turning the image stabilization off. Apparently the IS lens is looking for and correcting a problem when it doesn’t exist.

    • You’ve got it exactly right. I even recall as I was standing there for an hour looking at that setting and wondering… “What’s THAT doing to the pictures…?” Now I know. 🙂 Thanks much!

  3. Hey, Rob. You should join Ugly Hedgehog (http://www.uglyhedgehog.com), a message board for photographers. I’ve been a member for about six months and learned more there than in all the photography books I have in my library!

  4. If not IS then wind. Hopefully natural 🙂
    Nice first attempt.

  5. Thanks for posting this awesome photo and video of a sun set it was just what I needed to see tonight I love sun sets…

  6. I think it’s a great time lapse. I could never photo a sunrise…can’t make myself get out of bed that early, so thanks for providing this. I don’t think I’ve seen a sunrise in years 🙂

    Wonderful job, Rob! It’s fantastic. Loved it totally. 🙂 (I am going to share it on FB!)

  8. looks like the beginning of a music video -,o

  9. Rob, definitely the lens IS has caused your issue here. I have done a few of these now and learned it the hard way. Great work more please.

  10. Bravo! This is great.

    Glad to hear of the IS issue. I was taking some long exposure night shots on the beach last month and had a similar wobble issue on a night with NO wind at all. Bet it was the same thing.

  11. Awesome! Where did you take these from exactly?

  12. Even with the IS problems, I still like this. I’ve never tried it & want to learn how. BTW, I have family in Carmel (and Lafayette).
