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: One of the things I love about time-lapse video is how compelling the end product is. It's just magical how you can see the passage of time. Now, in order to do this, there's lots of things to put together. Essentially, hundreds, if not thousands of stills that get assembled into a finished movie. But the cool thing about time-lapse is that you coudl show things that just normally can't be seen. For example, the fact that you could see clouds moving, that you might not see on a calm, still day or the shadows tracing across the surface. Time lapse enables all sorts of things and it's very, very compelling. So while the viewer may spend a few seconds looking at a photo, they could spend a long time looking at a time-lapse, and this just draws you in. Time-lapse shows you things that the naked eye cannot, and that really makes it special and really makes it something that's in high demand. After all, you're watching this class because you find time lapse interesting, or perhaps you've got clients that are asking for it. The good news is, is that time lapse is easier than ever before, thanks to advances in software and camera technology.
And we're going to show you how to put all these things together.
