Time-lapse: Androids, Intervals & Shutter Speed

Laurie did a great video last week on capturing time-lapse footage with an iPhone. I wanted to showcase how I use my Android (a Pixel) to capture time-lapse and do a little comparison between the time-lapse output of a smartphone vs a big camera. It’s a short video, but somehow I manage to wander into a discussion of determining what interval to choose for your time-lapse as well as optimizing time-lapse shutter speeds. Below the break I added a little cheat sheet for the interval calculation:

Intro to Time-lapse Photography

Communicating our experiences requires the use of time/shutter speed to portray stop action or slow motion.  But, sometimes, that one click just doesn’t re-create the feeling we experience.  How can we communicate the passing of time without taking forever?  Enter time-lapse photography.  This week we begin our series by discussing what exactly time-lapse is, various capture devices for making time-lapse, essential and optional accessories to get started and what makes a good time-lapse subject.

TOTAL ECLIPSE COMPOSITE EDITING TUTORIAL

That was amazing! The eclipse has come and gone and I’m still buzzed just remembering how cool totality was. The predawn rush to beat traffic and the 6-hour, 40-mile drive home were worth it. Now I understand how eclipse chasers catch the bug.

My goal from the beginning was to enjoy the eclipse with family, friends and my workshop students while capturing a composite landscape image of it moving through its phases over an oak tree. In the video above I explain how I photographed this  and showcase the simple compositing technique I used in both Photo Raw 2017.6 and Lightroom/Photoshop. It’s really easy and it will also work for blending multiple night images into star trails.

If you want to hear more about my eclipse experience and see more photos and video head over to the latest post on my blog.
