Sea Point Sunset

A beautiful mid-winter sunset sky, shot from our balcony on Saturday 16th July. Part of a longer series I’m shooting in and around Sea Point, Cape Town that I hope will see the light of day at some point…

Very much experimental, and lots still to learn, but if you are interested in the setup:

  • Canon 7D with Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L.
  • Shot at f/2.8 Aperture Priority with a 6 second interval between shots. 817 photos – until the shutter speed > longer than the time interval, and it shutdown…
  • GBDeflicker used in After Effects to help with perceptible brightness fluctuations.
  • Photo-JPEG Compression.
  • iMovie for sound and titles.
  • Xenia

    Awesomeness – love how the sun almost appears to explode at 0:16 – want more! We’re going to miss living this side!

      Thanks Pal. Look forward to seeing more of your work! Must organise a SLR geek outing with Rich Bolland and Andy Schar!

    Dude, this is so awesome! I’m guessing your 7D has an interval timer to capture all those shots?

    I can see where this is going with shots like this all around Cape Town…

      Thanks Jason. I bought an intervolmeter that plugs into my Canon 7d to set intervals, number of photos, etc.
