Welcome to podcast #53 featuring a discussion on time-lapse photography with programmer, author, and photographer Gunther Wegner. Gunther discusses talks about his time-lapse videos (Canary Skies, Alpine Skies, and Baltic Skies - available on YouTube) and demonstrates the work flow on his program LRTimeLapse (available for Mac and PCs at www.lrtimelapse.com). In addition, Gunther has written an ebook on time-lapse techniques also available at www.lrtimelapse.com. Highly recommended! Hopefully, Gunther will return to the podcast to discuss his film African Skies which he is currently working on.

Although badly scratched the caemra still functioned, although the tripod did not fare so well.
