NYC Time Lapses

Here’s a time lapse video from the 33rd floor of the Times Square Intercontinental Hotel on 44th and 8th.  If you haven’t been, it’s amazing and close to everything.

The camera faces north.  On the right side of the frame is the Milford Plaza.  I haven’t been there, but the outside looks really cool!   The video is playing at 60 frames a second.  Unfortunately, when I left my hotel room, I forgot to turn off the lights. There was a massive glare starting to develop in the photos as time went on, so I had to cut it where this video ends.  Lesson learned.  To bad, because the next 100 frames are my favorite.

I tried to make the most out of my 30 hour work trip to Manhattan, and learned a few thing along the way.

This next video is from the same location, and was filmed the next morning on April 2, 2013.  This is the sunrise that morning.

This night time lapse was taken on the night of April 1st, 2013 from the Intercontinental Hotel near Times Square in New York City, New York.  It starts when it does because this is when I got back from dinner.  It ends when it does because my batteries died in my Canon Mark III.  Another lesson learned!

The real lesson is that maybe I should stick with portraits.
