Here’s a new mult-layer turbine composite of the brand-new 1.8 MW turbine installed last month at the MWRA facilities in Everett, MA. Since it’s close, big, and easily filmed, I’ll probably try to do some more videos of this turbine in the future.

Last night the full moon was up so I took the opportunity to shoot a moonlit turbine video. Here’s the color-corrected version: And the original footage as shot:
My first chance in a while to get the McGlynn turbine at sunset, so I went and shot some footage. This time it worked pretty well. I’ll just post the video and let that speak for itself:
Finally the weather and my schedule allowed me to run a time-lapse near sunset. I was hoping this would allow a nice “natural” fade and get some interesting color effects on the turbine blades, but the weather was not ideal for the style I was working with before. Clear skies means the polarizer turns the
I realized I hadn’t posted these anywhere, so I put them up on Vimeo and am posting there here. In July of 2010 I borrowed a video camera and got footage of various turbines around Boston, including the Northwind 100 at McGlynn Elementary. For that one in particular, I managed to get a full hour
I went with everything ready, batteries charged, sensor cleaned, and got some good footage… until the wind died and the turbine stopped. I only included a minute’s worth of still turbine frames at the end, but it was more like half an hour before I decided to quit while I was ahead. Alas, I didn’t
Here’s another time-lapse of the McGlynn turbine, again shot near sunset, and again, the battery died before the sun could actually set. I’ll use the double battery pack tomorrow to make sure that doesn’t happen again. To keep the shutter speed slow while preventing over-exposure, I invested in a neutral-density filter and a polarizer. (The
And here are the videos I mentioned in the previous post!
I did seven experiments with my turbine time-lapse projects today, and they’re uploading right now to YouTube and Vimeo. So I’ll post a side project from the videos, composite images made from the individual time-lapse frames:
Recorded this today from 11:05 am to 2:00 pm. We’re getting a nice progression of light, which is what I’m going for. I wanted a little softer feel than before, so I set the camera to shoot at 1/40 second to blur the blades a little. After watching the results I think I might have
