Two-Years Ago (11-September-2009) — Alaska

Gone to See North America Road Trip. Day 21: Alaska Railroad – Anchorage to Spencer Glacier. (Day 7: Nikonians ANPAT 9).

On our final day, the ANPAT 9 group took the Alaska Railroad from Anchorage to Spencer Glacier. The images I took with a Nikon D300 camera and 18-200 mm lens were combined into a time-lapse video (about 2.3  minutes in length). Some questions. Do viewers like this format, should I add music, or would a slideshow with just the best 20 images be better?

  1. some of the photos were very distorted. I always believe that less is better, but in practice it is hard to accomplish.

    1. I let the computer convert the portrait images to landscape causing the distortion. I know have software that I could pan or zoom in on the images, and also soften the transition from image to image. Just takes time.
