    Default Nightsky timelapse videos

    Hi everybody,

    Here are two timelapse videos from the night sky of Greece.
    Each of them consists of some thousand photos that have been shot with a Nikon D600 last summer.

    Hope you like them.

    Your feedback will be much aprreciated

    There's a helluva lotta stars out there!
    I quite enjoy watching there but other than showing us there's a lot of stars (which could arguably be done better be done with stills) does this show anything, and if so what?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking the footage (indeed it's impossible to do so without knowing the purpose), once basics like getting the correct exposure, clean lens etc are sorted (which, to my eyes, seems perfect) where are you going with this? Simply filming what is there is no longer enough. You might like to think about telling a story or making a statement. Even something scientific about the number of stars in the sky ..

    That's an interesting way of thinking about this. Sometimes I think the "art" is enough - once you'e perfected the technique, it's coming up with imaginative positions and sequences. As I type this, I realise I've just said exactly the same as you - but rather than go down the scientific route, I'd just like to enjoy the beauty / journey of the images. Does that make sense?

    Makes perfect sense and I'm with you. That's what I meant (though I put it badly) when I said "Even something scientific ..." And I'm far from capable of doing it myself ... yet
