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: This course is designed for users of all levels. We're going to be using really high end gear like motorized sliders, down to, you know, simple things like a standard DSLR camera with a intervalometer. We'll even shoot some mirror-less cameras, and show you how those could be used for time-lapse. In fact, we're going to go all the way down to the process of using a smart phone. Now, the cool thing is that you could make time-lapse with just about any device. And we're going to explore just that. All I ask, is that you take the time to get familiar with your camera. So, if you've never fired open your iPhone, probably that's not the case. Make sure you keep the camera, download a time-lapse app and play with it a bit. Same thing holds true.
Once we go through the gear that you need, you're going to want to pick that up and read the individual instruction manuals. This is not a classroom, were I teach you everything you need to know about your Nikon, your Olympus, your Panasonic or your Canon camera. Those things do come with manuals. And if you don't like to learn that way, we do have a lot of training available here, on lynda.com. But I will walk you through all of the essential features and how things are going to be used, and it's a pretty straightforward process. So, as long as you've got a basic familiarity with your camera, you're going to be just fine.
