This weather pattern is really making things green. There is rain in the forecast through Sunday, and there have already been a couple of days of moisture. I woke up to big flakes of snow this morning.
I am not unhappy with the weather forecast. In fact, I was mentioning to someone that it may actually help me complete a project I have been working on since February. The project is a time-lapse of an orchid blooming.
It is almost perfect to stay in to edit photos. That brings up an interesting point about the orchid time-lapse and photo editing. I do not typically edit images in the manner that I am doing at the moment. In some ways, I am almost thinking I should have left the images as is. However, there is a stick holding up the stock with the orchid blossoms. The stick detracted from the images in such a manner that I made the decision to remove it.
The orchid time-lapse itself is over three thousand images taken over just over two months. I threw some of the bad images out right after import, which narrowed the count down to two thousand nine hundred eighty images. That is a lot of photo editing! The stick is not in all of the images, and I placed it in different places in the image throughout the time-lapse sequences. This made it easy to remove from some sequences, while other sequences are more time consuming. I am down to the last thirty seven photos to edit!
I may as well stay inside and get this project done! What else is there to do when the weather is wet and soupy?
