"Time Lapse Photography-How to Make the Ideal Video"
by Shiv Verma, APSA, MNEC- MA
Monday, October 6, 7:30 PM

The second month of this season starts off with another topic that has not been presented at GLPA before. A time-lapse video essentially compresses time into a smaller space, creating some exceptional and evocative results. In theory, time-lapse videos are easy to create – after all you simply take a few hundred photos, one after another, line them up in a video application and you are done. This is not true, if you want to create a stunning, seamless, flicker free time-lapse video.

Our speaker will teach you that there is a lot more involved than setting up a camera and capturing the sequence. With digital cameras we have infinite possibilities to capture time-lapse sequences and create exceptional video with even the simplest digital point and shoots to DSLR’s. This program will provide the basics necessary to create a time-lapse video and will cover the following topics: equipment, camera settings, intervalometer settings, settings based on the speed of activity, image assembly, creating a quick video using Lightroom and creating a video using Quicktime.
