Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the tripod, part of Time-Lapse Photography Workshop.
In Time Lapse photography our final result is actually a video, but we are …capturing the individual frames of that video using a camera. …Generally speaking video will be played back at about 30 frames per second, so we …are going to capture each frame individually. …Videos actually consisting of still frames, they are just captured in rapid succcessions... …We want to capture those images from a very stable platform. …Obviously if we're presenting the final result as video we don't want to have …that video bouncing all around, generally speaking at least. …There's certainly some exceptions, but that means that we're going to want to use a tripod.…
In order to provide a stable platform for the Time Lapse photography, so I'm going to …go ahead and extend the tripod legs here starting at the top and working my way …down, and only raising the tripod as much as I actually need to. …In this particular case I'm not really capturing a Time Lapse video, I'm just …demonstrating the tripod use here... And so I don't need to worry aobut …
