snOMG Blizzard Timelapse

snOMG Blizzard Timelapse on Vimeo.

Overnight timelapse of the snow accumulation in my backyard, in Whitmore Lake, MI. About 8 inches came down overnight. It’s still snowing & the camera’s still rolling, but I wanted to get the overnight footage online ASAP.

Shot at 45-second intervals with Nikon D90 + 55mm f/2.8 AF Micro, at 2.8, aperture priority, center-weighted, AutoISO up to 1600.

Lit by backyard security light, with aluminum foil strips dangling in front of the motion sensor to keep it on all night.

    Hi Ben. I saw your time lapse on I also live in Whitmore Lake and made a “blizzard” time lapse. Mine was made using the camera on my Macbook. The quality isn’t as nice as yours but it is still kind of cool.

    Did you connect your SLR to your computer to get the scheduled shots?
