The “Sunny Coast” of Australia or Sunshine Coast as we all know it, doesn’t always seem to live up to its name…
An impressive video
The proof comes in a video captured of an impressive storm off the city of Maroochydore on 1 February. The time-lapse allows us to truly appreciate the beauty and dynamics of such a meteorological phenomenon.
You can see clouds swelling and rising into the sky, while lightning flashes in the dark of night. Bear in mind however that these images have been through a software that boosted the colour and contrast.
The time lapse, a sublime tool
One cannot count the number of time-lapse videos on youtube. But how do these budding directors make it? According to our editor, the secret to a successful time-lapse video is using the camera in manual mode. So it’s enough to equip a camera or a quality camera, a tripod so the camera remains stable and start shooting in manual mode!
The art of time-lapse was developed on YouTube where we see teenagers exploding vases or hydraulic presses crushing various objects. YouTuber Casey Neistat made a time-lapse one of his specialties with his slow landscapes and scenes of life in New York.
