This hands-on workshop will teach you the essentials of time-lapse photography by creating one from scratch. The course will be split into 3 sessions. In session 1, you will learn the fundamentals for setting up your shot, including framing your scene and choosing proper settings. During session 2, you’ll put the theory into action by going outside and capturing footage on the street. For session 3, you’ll learn how to assemble your photos into a time-lapse video following a simplified workflow using Lightroom and After Effects. In addition to a finished time-lapse of your own, you will walk away from this workshop with a simple, yet powerful workflow to create stunning visual effects with time-lapse photography.
