Brinno Time Lapse - From Planting to Harvest

This is the start of a long term time lapse project, just for fun, to see what happens. I am documenting a corn field from planting, through the growing season and harvesting. In my last post I detailed the fabrication of the complex tree mount, shown below, along with a selfie from the running Brinno Camera.


Here is a time lapse from the day of planting.

This was shot with the Brinno TLC200 f1.2 with one capture every five seconds. I altered the playback a little in iMovie, cutting out dead time and slowing down the tractor for a turn in the middle of the clip.

After the planting segment, I changed the batteries and switched the camera setting to capture one photo every hour. I will check on the camera very infrequently and let it run. Depending on my motivation, I will probably download a few progression clips.

The final movie will have 10-15 seconds from this clip, the growing and another 10-15 seconds of harvesting. Don't hold your breath for updates to this project, check back around Thanksgiving for the final video.
