Toilet Playtime

Tea-Smoke

Sometimes it’s good to switch things up a little. So today I wanted to see what I could shoot on the back of the toilet. So here is todays toilet toilet play time.

Bathroom Gaurdian

This fellow has been living on the back of the toilet longer than I’ve lived here. After so long, it only seems natural that it would be here to introduce it’s tank.

Tea-Bags

Everything was shot all in one spot, most everything involved is a vase of water, some tea bags, and some chia seeds. And this is the result.

Chia-Seeds

Camera, Tripod, Intervalometer, and lit with the bathroom heat lamp. Post was in Bridge, After Effects, and Photoshop.
Nothing like making the most of a little!

As Time Passes

Keeping track of time is difficult. It feels like the last couple of months have gone by in just a couple of days.

This is what 4 hours at the beach looks like in one image. 120 photos into 1.

I’ve been fond of time lapse for a long time, but I’m seeing so many other ways to portray the passing of time. As it becomes harder to keep track of time, it’s also becoming more interesting on how it can be portrayed.

Different sections of an evening at a fair. I stood in one spot with my camera for about 2..5 hours.

I’m coming to the close of my first weekend in a couple months. After so much time of being so busy every day, I was looking forward to having time to relax. Turns out, I just get antsy and start working on things.

Long Exposure Time Lapse

As a test this .gif is made up of long exposure time lapse. Which naturally means, that I was sitting in one spot for a very long time. The exposure time for each frame was 3 minutes and 45 seconds.

To get this I hiked the Saddle in Wenatchee just before midnight.

The stars are a little difficult to see, but they can only get better from here! I’m sure that I’ll shoot plenty of these over the summer!
