Time-Lapse Photography Workshop.
A Time-lapse video essentially compresses time into a smaller space, creating some exceptional and evocative results.
In theory, time-lapse videos are easy to create – after all you simply take a few hundred photos, one after another, line them up in a video application and you are done. Not true, if you want to create a stunning, seamless, flicker free time-lapse video. There is a lot more involved than setting up a camera and capturing the sequence.
With digital cameras we have inﬁnite possibilities to capture time-‐-‐lapse sequences and create exceptional video with even the simplest digital point and shoots to DSLR’s. This intensive 1 day workshop provides the knowledge necessary to create advanced time-lapse videos from capture to the use of a well structured post-process workﬂow.
We will split our time between shooting sequences and working through the post-process workﬂow.
This includes importing images to exporting videos using applications like Lightroom, LRTImelapse, Quicktime Pro.
We start the workshop with a formal presentation looking at the many uses of time-lapse imagery. Like in most of my workshops I will show you that you do not need to spend thousands to achieve awesome results.
We will cover the following topics in detail:
• Equipment overview
• Camera settings
• Intervalometer settings
• Settings based on the speed of activity
We will record two sequences and return to the classroom and use Adobe Lightroom to import, adjust, and export our first sequence. Next, we bring everything into QuickTime Pro to assemble the initial movie and move it to iMovie to add titles and other effects. Typically we will use Premiere Elements for MAC and Windows users or FinalCut Pro X (this will be based on what participants would prefer)
Next we will cover in more detail
- Day to Night/Night to Day or the “Holy Grail” of time-lapse
- Post Production Workﬂow (Win & Mac)
- Editing to the audio
- Final Movie Creation
