First Time lapse attempt with my GoPro


Jan 18, 2012
Camped off the Oak Grove Rd down in Southern Utah (West of Leeds, UT). I've never done Time Lapse and actually don't really know what settings are best. Had this one set to do a picture ever second I think??

What are some suggestions for time lapse? I learned from this one that I should have set my camera pointed higher. It was just on a cheap 8" mini tripod and I was worried that if it was too high that I wouldn't catch the fire.

Any other suggestions?
