Time lapse photography is one service which I offer, and also enjoy doing personally.
I have enjoyed this area of photography for a number of years yet I only started offering it as a service about a year ago. Since then I kept it purely as a hobby.
As simple as it may seem on the face of it, there’s a lot of thought that goes in to capturing the perfect time lapse shots. Some factors include:
- Getting the frame rate right
- Getting the right end video length
- Reducing flicker
- Recording for the right amount of time
Without the right balance of factors, your end result won’t be as profesional as it could be.
I’ve learned the best techniques via personal experience and learning from the right places. Here’s a couple of good time lapse photography websites I visit frequently:
Pro-Lapse is probably the best time lapse websites around. Loads of information and a great calculator.
Expert photography is a great general photography website.
