This compilation of time lapse sequences stems from my exploration of astrophotography which formed the basis of my folio. Each sequence was shot in my local area using a tripod, DSLR camera and timed shutter release. Despite not exhibiting as much variety as I would have liked, the film demonstrates time lapse photography as applied to night-time landscapes. It captures characteristics of the sky impossible to portray in still photography, such as the way the stars rotate around the celestial South Pole and aeroplanes zip across the sky.
