Learn how to speed up time and create compelling visual effects with time-lapse photography. Join Rich Harrington in the field as he captures nature's patterns at Red Rock Canyon in southwestern Nevada, and shows how to frame your scene and choose the proper camera settings. He'll show you how to capture great images, whether you're using a DSLR camera and a motorized slider or just a smartphone you have handy. Then join him back in the studio to transform your still footage into a storytelling time-lapse video, using tools like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and Final Cut Pro.

Rich: So, we're getting ready to start shooting a time-lapse, and the first thing we have to think about is what is our delivery frame rate. Now, I'm going to go for 24 frames per second, and that's a very cinematic frame rate. But, you might need to deliver at other requirements depending upon who you're working with. Working with a European broadcaster? They might ask for 25. You need to deliver to standard broadcast? maybe it's 29.97, and some HD stations even deliver at 60p, so you need to figure out what is the right rate. For purposes of today's exercise, I'm going to be shooting for a target of 24 frames per second, which is actually 23.976, but for purposes of my calculator.
We're not going to get so complex. We'll just going to work with the whole number of 24.
