Timelapse Photography: Shooting with the Camera in Motion
Keith Kiska & Rich Harrington
What can make a timelapse video even more dramatic? Camera moves. By moving the camera between each exposure, you can include an additional element of dynamism to a timelapse video.
In this course, author Rich Harrington is joined by timelapse video expert Keith Kiska. Together, they explore the hardware, software, and creative decisions involved in creating moving timelapses, while on location in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rich and Keith detail the types of motion that you can add to a timelapse video, from basic movement of the camera to left-to-right, sliding, and two- or three-axis movements with high-end, motorized rigs. They also demonstrate hardware add-ons in a variety of price ranges, and show the post-production techniques that yield the highest quality.
