Learn best practices for shooting burst time lapsed with the third-party app Slow Shutter.
- As with stills, the camera that's built into the iPhone is fantastic for motion. You can do slow-mo, which is a high speed capture, which will slow everything down. You could do a time lapse, which is a series of stills. And you can do video. And they all give you great output. Some of the tricks that we learned before apply to motion as well. Obviously, make sure you clean off the lens right away. Make sure that the camera is stable. You can lock your exposure and your focus the same way we learned before. One thing to keep in mind is that while we often do record in portrait for stills, for video, probably gonna wanna keep it in landscape.
That wider perspective lends itself much better to the screens you might be looking at later when you watch the video. Whatever you do, don't rotate it in the middle of your capture. So, a couple of things you can't do in the iOS capture utility are slow shutter, or motion blurs. And earlier, the train went by, and we're able to record some really cool video of that and it was a great opportunity to not just record video, but to also play around with motion blur using the slow shutter app.
It's a lot of fun to use, it's just like setting your shutter speed to a lower speed on a traditional camera. So, with all of this video, while we can edit it on the touch devices, we're actually gonna do some really cool stuff in Photoshop later, passing it through Camera Raw, doing all sorts of stuff that we can only do on the desktop. So, have fun creating video, and if you get a chance, play around with the slow shutter app because it can be really magical for light trails and motion blurs, stuff like that.
