As we get started on this video training course, I wanted to take a moment to show …you the tools I'll be using in the projects that we'll work on together. …Chances are you already have all or most of these tools in your camera bag. …Being photography, of course, we'll start with a camera and a lens. …And in time-lapse photography, you can really put just about any lens to use …that you like, wide angle, telephoto. Anything can be employed, if it's a good …photograph, it can probably become a good time-lapse video. …We also want to make sure that that camera has plenty of power. …And that means carrying spare batteries and making sure your batteries are fully charged.…
In some situations, you might even want to use an adapter, so that you can …literally plug your camera into the wall, so you have continuous power available. …I also encourage you to carry plenty of digital media cards so that ideally for …each time-lapse you record you can start with a fresh card. …It's not mandatory, but it's very helpful from an organizational perspective. …
