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.

ON1 Inspiration – Gray Skies Can Be Great Skies

Hi everyone!

It is great to be back for another dose of ON1 Inspiration. The photo I’m sharing with you today comes from a situation I think most landscape photographers are familiar with. I was traveling, and had just a few days to spend in each location I visited. One of my stops was Kushimoto, Japan. I wanted to capture a glorious sunrise over the Hashigui rocks.

Hudson’s 24-Frame Street Photography Challenge

Blake and I asked you in the Plus to community to give us a photo challenge and you responded by sending us out to photograph the streets of our own cities in no more than 24 frames. It was a tough challenge for a couple of photographers like us who normally photograph landscapes, wildlife and outdoor adventure. It took me back to the days when I did travel photography articles with film. That’s looking back a long ways now…
