About This Class

If you've ever wanted to start out with time lapse photography, but don't know where to start or don't know how to do it properly, this class is for you. 

We discuss basic equipment, camera settings, aperture, shutter speeds and interval.  We then jump real deep into the 180° degree shutter rule which can be really confusing for first time shooters.

I will take you on a very basic time lapse shoot and then back home, walk you through importing the photo's to Lightroom and LRTimelapse  and rendering the final video.

Lightroom has a 30 day free trial download and LRTimelapse has a free download for beginners.

LRTimelapse has excellent tutorials on how to use the software, please watch them to familiarize yourself with all the steps.

Due to time constraints and to keep things simple and easy, I will not be going into the Holy Grail procedure in this class.  I would urge you to first shoot a few time lapses using my method described in these classes, before moving on to exposure jumps.
