We’re going to wrap the month up with Intro to Time-lapse Photography using a DSLR or, interchangeable lens camera. I’ll review equipment and camera settings, and then I’ll share my workflow for creating a time-lapse using individual frames, adding some creative editing, syncing the edits to all images and stitching them together for a final time-lapse video clip.
This week we focus on action cameras. I have a GoPro Hero 5 and will do several time-lapse videos using various mounts and using both Time-lapse Video and Time-lapse Photo modes. And finally we will process a Time-lapse Photo clip using the free GoPro software Studio as well as adding creative touches in ON1 Photo RAW with final video rendering using Quicktime Player.
Welcome to week two of Introduction to Time-lapse Photography. This week I am going to share some of my techniques for creating time-lapse with my smart phone. I will cover in-camera time-lapse as well as how to use Apps to gain more creative control. And, finally, I’ll go over some basic post processing techniques that I use to help make my time-lapse videos pop.
Editor’s note: Android users, a rumor is going around that Hudson will have a video rebuttal of sorts coming soon!
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.
Thanks to everyone in the Plus community who spent the month with me exploring the basics of time-lapse photography. It’s been fun sharing on of my many photographic passions with you all.
Time is an important aspect of every photographer’s life. First off, it seems like we never have enough time in our busy lives to enjoy our passion for photography. Then there’s the time of day, which plays a crucial role in the appearance of our imagery. We drag ourselves out of bed at o’dark thirty to be on location at just the moment when the sun crests the horizon, bathing the world in a warm glow and we count down time as the sun descends lower and lower to disappear for the day. For some of us, it doesn’t end there, and we wait for the darkest time of night to photograph the sky, our cameras clicking away at distant galaxies.
