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: Today, it's a beautiful day. I'd like a little more clouds, but they'll come in throughout the day. But, sometimes with clouds, there's rain, or it could be really cold. So you need to think about taking care of your gear. I always recommend that you bring some basic weather gear out. We have some plastic sheets that we can wrap the gear up in if it starts to rain really quick. I could throw things over, cut a hole in to shoot through, maybe you bring an umbrella. If you're going to be leaving the camera for a long period of time you might actually have to put it in a weather box. Just give some thought to how you're going to keep the gear safe and dry. Now a lot of professional cameras tend to be ruggedized and they can take a little bit of rain.
But you don't want to leave the camera out there shooting forever. So just make sure that you take care of your gear. Keep it dry, and if it's not supposed to get wet, keep it really dry. Use an umbrella or some protective cover, and make sure that you don't expose it to heat or cold issues that are beyond the recommendation. So, you might want to be careful where to store the gear. Keep it out of direct sunlight. Don't put it into deep cold. In any case, your equipment will appreciate it.
