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.
After lunch we will again meet, this time on location in Sacramento to make some time-lapse images. The actual location will be announced a few days before the workshop and will be dependent on the forecasted weather conditions in order to make the most interesting time-lapse sequences.
A comprehensive set of hand-outs covering all of the covered topics, tips, resources and software tutorials 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.
This exclusive workshop is limited to only 12 participants. Register Now!
