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.
This course was created and produced by Rich Harrington. We are honored to host this content in our library.
Rich: There's something great about being able to capture the moment, control the playback rate, and really show people these great life experiences that you've captured. Time lapse is a lot of fun, and the more you do it, the easier it gets. So, feel free, come back and watch this class again. Take a look at some of the production techniques before you head out on your next shoot. And when you switch applications or want to try out a new tool, revisit the training. Every time you do it, it gets easier, and you'll find subtle ways to make it that much better. I find the more I shoot time lapse/g, the better I get at it and the more fun I have.
If you're interested in learning more ways of getting things done with your DSLR cameras, be sure to check out our series here on lynda.com called DSLR Video Tips. This is a chance to learn each week about how to get more things down with the DSLR style camera. And this will also help you with your time lapse shooting. It'll fill in things like the exposure triangle and proper tripod support. So, hopefully that'll give you some fresh ideas. My name's Rich Harrington, and thanks again for joining me.
