Rich: When it comes to time-lapse, the primary objective is to get a great exposure in the camera. Now this is going to encompass a couple of things. We'll fully explore the concept of the Exposure Triangle, so you balance out the aperture, the ISO, and the shutter speed. This'll give you a proper exposure in camera. More importantly though, you need that exposure to not change over time. So you're going to need to learn to shoot manual. So that the camera doesn't adapt. If you've got a camera in automatic mode, the exposure's going to vary as the camera tries to compensate for changes in the light. You in fact want to see those changes in the light, so you need to shoot manual, and make sure that it's properly exposed as close as possible in the camera. Besides that, you also need to get a shot that's absolutely stable. We're going to use tripods and lock these things down. Later on, we'll take a look at advanced stabilization systems. We need to make sure that the camera provides a constant point of reference with minimal movement and no unnecessary vibrations or adjustments. We got a lot of technical things to look at and some gear to go over, but I think you'll see that all those pieces come together, to make some great shots. So, let's go a little bit deeper into the canyons here and start to shoot, and we're going to make some great time-lapse video.
