Time-Lapse Photography

 Registration is closed for this event
This soup-to-nuts full-day workshop will cover everything required to get you started making time-lapse photographs. In addition to the classroom portion, you will photograph your own traffic time-lapse and create your own time-lapse video by the end of the day.


You do not need a fancy rig to create professional quality time-lapse images and videos. Getting started in shooting time-lapse requires only a DSLR camera, good tripod, and something to control the time interval between exposures. We will review the equipment, camera settings, exposure control, storage requirements, lens choices, and how to calculate and manage the interval between shots. We'll also cover some advanced techniques including reducing time-lapse "flicker", motion control, bulb-ramping and more.  

In addition to the classroom portion, we will step outside to allow you to photograph your own traffic time-lapse sequence after which we will return inside to create your own time-lapse video by the end of the day.

A comprehensive set of hand-outs covering all of the covered topics, tips, resources, plus workflow guides for both Lightroom and Photoshop will be provided to each participant.

It's going to be a fun and enlightening day. You'll leave this course prepared and excited to join the new time-lapse movement! 

What to bring:
Participants are encouraged to bring their cameras along with a sturdy tripod and intervalometer if you have one. Check your camera because many have "time-lapse" settings with a built-in intervelometer. A list of low and medium cost ($10 and up) intervalometers will be provided before the class.

If you would like to create your own time-lapse video during the day. and you have a laptop (or iMac) with either Lightroom or Photoshop you may bring that too.

A list of low and medium cost ($10 and up) intervalometers will be provided before the class as well as additional notes about using your own computer (if desired).

This exclusive workshop is limited to only 12 participants. Register Now!
