Trip Lapse #1: Vermillion, SD to Huron, SD

Eastern South Dakota scenery isn’t all that great, maybe that’s one of the reasons why our interstate speed limits are set at 75mph. At any rate, today on my way back home from college I set my hooked my webcam up to my laptop and recorded what I’m calling a trip lapse. The camera took a photo every 10 seconds for the ‘scenic’ three hour journey and in all recorded 969 images. The movie is running at 12fps and the result is a little rough, but I look forward to experimenting with the technique further. I think one photo every 5 seconds will make it more fluid, but i don’t want to increase the length too much. The two towns you see in the video are Sioux Falls and Mitchell respectively.
