Time-lapse Photography – The Move from Still to Motion Co-sponsored by PhotoshopCAFE
Jun 2014 13

Time-lapse photography is a technique in which the frequency at which individual still frames are captured is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 30 frames per second; resulting in a speed increase.

Using time-lapse, one can use most still cameras to create a unique form of video.

During this session, Datacolor Experts David Saffir and David Tobie review time-lapse setup, execution, and post-production. This includes camera selection, setup, exposure, options in capture/frame rates, camera controllers, camera supports, post-production editing, and video rendering. We’ll also discuss adding an audio or music soundtrack to the final video. Several time-lapse videos will be reviewed, discussed and critiqued.
