Sunday Craft School ~ Linky Party !

Welcome to the Snapdragon Diaries Craft Link Up Party !
Week #5

It's lovely to see week on week I have more contributors to the party. Thank You !
Every link up gets repinned onto the Snapdragon Diaries Pinterest Board.  I choose and showcase my favourite entries. Simple. Wanna link up your craft or talent? Photography tutorials, crafting, DIY, baking.... ANYTHING goes.  

So a few weeks ago Craig kindly wrote a Timelapse Photography tutorial to link up with this party... see it here.  
It's a sequence of photo's linked to create the illusion of motion. I was keen to try this technique for myself having read his tutorial.  I have to say though that Craig has made some pretty super videos.
One early sunny morning I set my camera up outside in the back garden (before I weeded... ANYTHING to get out of weeding my garden right??? ) I wanted to capture the opening of a flower head. 
I set my camera on it's tripod and programmed it take photo's at regular intervals about 5 mins apart throughout the morning... It took a few hours to fully open and the weather went from sunny to overcast back to sunny.. not ideal really. But, it was my first attempt and I can concentrate on the weather and light balance in my next attempts. A learning curve right?
The photo's were uploaded into Windows Movie Maker and timing adjusted etc.
I'm quite proud of my first attempt. What do you think? Let me know if you have tried this technique also!?

Such a great tutorial and photo's... classy, stylish lady.

I've made similar to these myself and they take time but are great once finished.
