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 month might have been the best set of photos ever submitted! Thank you everyone that uploaded a photo to be critiqued. The individual photo critique videos are posted below.
In this Live Q&A Laurie Excell and I announce the Summer Photo Challenge winners and run through some of our favorite images. It was an incredible group of submissions everyone. Great job! If your image was chosen please send me a message in the Ask A Coach forum or send me a message with where to send your Black Rapid strap. We also talked a fair bit about this months subject of time-lapse photography, took some general photography questions and talked about some of our favorite locations and why we return to them year after year. We had a little technical glitch with our webinar software in the middle of the event which we apologize for. Thanks so much to those of you who hung in there while we got the system back online. We’ve cut that downtime out of the recorded version.

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.
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:
Hi everyone! Back in July, we had this great Best of ON1 Plus in 2017 First Half recap. Since July we’ve had even more great stuff, including Matt’s Long Exposure Course in July and Blake’s incredible series on Artistry in ON1 Photo RAW. Along with all that we’ve had monthly photo critiques, multiple contests and challenges. Enough of the past, it’s time to look ahead at what’s on deck for the future for Plus.
Let’s see your absolute best image of this past summer! — Wait a second, no we haven’t forgotten our friends in the Southern Hemisphere. Just put “your summer is our winter” in the submission description. My friends at Blackrapid have offered to provide the overall winner with a Sport Breathe strap as well as Cross Shot Breathe straps for the second and third place winners. First place will also receive $150 in cash, while second gets $100. Laurie Excell and I will select the winning images as well as some runners up to showcase in a Long Exposure Challenge video at month’s end. Below are the rules, how to enter and some tips on what we are looking for from both of us.
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.
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.
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.
It is always a pleasure guest coaching here at ON1 Plus. There is such a high-caliber of photographers here in this community, and I am always ecstatic when I can teach you new tricks! Hopefully, after this month I have shown you a few more things about Artistry. It is not the easiest thing to comprehend nor teach.
