Do you want to know everything about time lapse photography?
This EBook is all you will need!
After watching my time lapse videos you might have noticed that aside being the developer of LRTimelapse, I am an enthusiastic time lapse photographer and I managed to become fairly skilled in this area during the past few years. I sell Ultra HD (4K) time lapse footage to international broadcast companies, they use them for example to showcase 4K-Televisions or demonstrate other emerging technologies. All those videos are completely made with the techniques described in this ebook.
You probably know I always love to share my experiences and thus, I wrote this EBook. Beginning with choosing the correct equipment and the proper camera setup, I explain everything step by step: from shooting, editing single frames, making transitions between individually edited images, and deflickering until rendering out the final video.
This Ebook is suited for the beginner, as well as the advanced user. Starting with the basic and more advanced shooting techniques, we head on the powerful editing techniques, teaching you how to really get the great results you know from the videos you’ve probably watched
I explain how to properly deflicker static and moving sequences (i.e. shot from a slider) and I certainly explain how to master the holy grail of time lapse photography. For those of you who don’t know what the holy grail of time lapse photography is, it is the process of creating a smooth transition from day to night or vice versa in a time lapse sequence. This only scratches the surface as to what I will explain throughout this EBook.
As a LRTimelapse user, you are going to find all the information you will need to really master this program and its workflows. It beats having to spend hours digging through the forum and my tutorials (which I thoroughly recommend nevertheless ;-))
The book concludes with an annex that provides you a summary of the most important workflows, check-lists, and cheat sheets for you to print out and take with you when you are shooting.
I really hope you enjoy the huge effort that I’ve put into this fourth edition and the translation. I also hope that it will help you to further develop your capabilities as a time lapse photographer.
Preface to the 4th Edition
You now have at your fingertips the 4th edition (2014) of the ebook Time-Lapse Shooting and Processing. A lot has happened since the first edition. In particular, this current, 4th edition required a complete update of the section on processing, since the production workflow with Lightroom 5 and LRTimelapse 3 has changed significantly. The reasoning for this is that, with the issue of Lightroom 5, Adobe drastically reduced the functionality for producing time-lapse series using the slide-show module. That means that LRTimelapse can tackle video rendering with significantly more flexibility and better quality. Moreover, the LRTimelapse user-interface is more heavily oriented towards individual workflows. These new developments have made the entire workflow simpler and easier to use, offering professionals a more efficient process.
While revising this ebook, I redesigned the explanations to include even more direct examples of usage, centering on the most important workflows.
The Editon 2014 EBook comes as a PDF-document with 134 pages.
