Class Details:
This workshop is best described as a crash-course introduction to time-lapse photography. The classroom presentation will cover post-production workflow using Adobe After Effects 2017 to render a video from hundreds of stills. Hyper-lapse and astro-time-lapse techniques will also be covered.

The field session will include hands-on landscape time-lapse techniques including compositions, the use of remotes and intervalometers, as well as DSLR camera settings such as the correct apertures, ISOs, shutter speeds and white balances needed to capture stunning time-lapses at sunrise, sunset and even at night.

The class will also teach students how to render hundreds of Raw still photos into HD videos.

Other Considerations:
  • Students will need to drive themselves to Treasure Island, and can certainly choose to carpool with one another during the class. Bridge toll is not included in class price.
  • We recommend that you wear layers (as it can be quite chilly if windy on Treasure Island), as well as shoes that are good for walking.
  • Students should bring a notebook to the lecture, as well as a snack, water, and a sense of adventure for the field shoot. We recommend that you wear layers (as it can be quite chilly if windy on Treasure Island), as well as shoes that are good for walking.
