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: You notice I've already got two shots running behind me and a third one in my hand, I can get this setup and keep shooting. Why only shoot with one camera? Chances are you've got some old camera bodies lying around that you bought before or maybe you could borrow one from a friend. If you own more than one lens, bring more than one camera. This is going to get you the flexibility to try some things out. Maybe you shoot with a longer exposure on one and a different interval on the other. Or you go ahead and make some adjustments using two different focal lengths to get completely different shots. Right now, I'm shooting someone climbing the rocks, and over here we have groups hiking through the canyon.
I'm getting two completely different shots. And, I can even set up a third, and this just means more bang for my buck. If you're going to hike out there and get those shots, get what you need.
