Fun with time-laspe videos

For a list of my blogs by name, click here.

I have been trying to figure out how best to create a video of myself working on my art. I thought a time lapse video would work well since an artwork can really take a long time. I know I wouldn't have the patience to sit through an entire session of an artist creating something, from start to completion. 
 At normal speed, a video short enough to keep one from getting bored isn't going to show much. I have been quite amused and learned much by watching other artists' time lapse videos so I though I'd give it a try. I have yet to perfect this, but thought I'd share what I've managed so far.Here I am in my studio. I want to learn how to slow things down a little as this is a bit too rapid, I think. Makes it kind of funny, though:

I'll also need to work on exposure. I have a very nice camera I would like to try using instead of my phone. This still isn't the completed artwork. Over the following two days, I changed things quite a bit with this piece and still I am not sure that I'm done. Perhaps I'll post a photo of it when finished - I mean before I secure the layers and call it completely finished. For the next time lapse video, I think I will do a smaller artwork. That usually takes less time.

And, just for fun, here is a time lapse video of the storm last night as it was approaching. The cloud formations were amazing. There's nothing like seeing with a real pair of eyes, but you might enjoy this:
