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.[Read More]

Ever wonder why your brand new camera isn’t focusing exactly where you would like it to? Photographers spend a lot of money on new cameras and new lenses that may not necessarily be calibrated. In this video Craig Beckta of Craig Beckta Photography explains how to calibrate your camera using the SpyderLENSCAL so photos are in focus, just the way you wanted them.
They focus on color management for video workflow, helping you understand color controls from capture to display – whether on a reference monitor, TV set, or computer display. They demonstrate the use of the SpyderCHECKR device for camera characterization / profiling and white balance, the SpyderCUBE for color balance control and dynamic range, and the Spyder4ELITE HD calibration device for controlling individual editing displays, displays clustered in desktop workstations and in workgroups. The use of this device for field display calibration, such as with the Atomos Samurai Blade, will also be discussed.

Watch Datacolor Experts, David Saffir and David Tobie as they discuss image editing using one of the most powerful tools in Photoshop: Layer Masks. Layer masks can be used simply to enhance single images, apply special effects, selectively edit color, saturation, sharpness, highlight/shadow detail and more. Additionally, layer masks make it possible to combine or “stack” multiple images to create one with continuous depth of field, or to manage any variety of aspects of the image. During the process, we’ll make extensive use of a Wacom tablet to create composite images.[Read More]
