Time Lapse – The Journey continues

IMG_2501Ive been continuing to experiment with Time Lapse since my first play around in the garden using Triggertrap for IOS. I wanted something a bit more visually interesting so took the equipment with me on two recent trips to Devon and my favourite place in the world, Croyde Bay.

60D_rear_lcd_1000Ive had my Canon 450d for 3 years now and as good a camera as it has been, I have to admit I had become frustrated and wanted to do more. So with some careful consideration I decided to take the plunge and upgrade.

Intro to my Nerdy Collection

Nothing particularly interesting in this post I’m afraid, its simply a placeholder to explain what I intend to post here over time.

I am a bit of a geek when it comes to movies, cartoons I loved as a kid and gaming across the generations. As a result I have invested a fair amount of money into what others often to refer to as kids toys. Although anyone who enjoys them like I do will tell you “THEY AREN’T KIDS TOYS!!!” …. anyway with that out of the way let me explain what I plan to do here.

I am going to use this as an excuse to use my home studio equipment and I’m going to take pictures of my various toys over time and post them here. I will do several angles and then briefly discuss the item, how much I rate it and also provide a rough cost and where I can remember I will say where I purchased it. Sometimes and certainly in the initial few posts I may not remember as I will be going over some older items in my collection too.

I dont expect this to be a popular read but for fellow nerds you may enjoy it. I should also state that I’m not a collector and these items are not kept mint in boxes or anything like that. I bought them to look at and enjoy therefore the packaging had to go. Sorry to those serious collectors who are gasping in horror!
