This hands-on workshop will teach you the essentials of time-lapse photography by creating one from scratch. The course will be split into 4 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, and you’ll learn how to assemble your photos into a time-lapse video following a simplified workflow using Lightroom and After Effects. For session 3, you'll travel to a nearby vista and shoot a sunset timelapse. For session 4, in addition to a finished time-lapse of your own from the previous week, you will walk away from this workshop with a simple, yet powerful workflow to create stunning videos with time-lapse photography.
Gear: Northwest Film Forum will provide 2 complete timelapse kits to share during the class, but students are encouraged to bring their own gear if they'd like. Extra lenses and tripods will be available to students who have their own cameras.
Required Gear for Timelapse:
• DLSR (or Mirrorless) camera which allows for manual settings of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO, with fully charged batteries
• Intervalometer, if your camera does not include this functionality natively. Prices range from $50 to $150. Glazer's Camera is great place shop and get advice.
• A steady tripod
• A memory card with a minimum of 32GB free space
• Weather gear (plastic sheets, umbrella…) — in case there’s light rain on the 2nd and 3rd nights.
