Master the art of time lapse photography

Duration: 4 weeks. Start any time you want.


You’ve probably seen some of the beautiful time lapse videos floating around the internet. Wouldn’t it be great to capture time in motion like that, really showing how a scene changes over time instead of just showing one particular moment? Think that would be complicated? Not at all, it's actually easy and fun. You don't have to master video editing create moving images.

During this 4 week online course you’ll learn to capture the element of time in your images, using the equipment and software you probably already own. Each week you'll receive the course documentation including assignments, allowing you to practice what you have learned. I will provide you with personal feedback on your work and answer any questions you might have along the way.

Take your shots from average to awesome

You’ll learn everything about how to set up the perfect time lapse shot and how to get the most out of your gear and software. You'll also master the intricacies of the post-production workflow, and learn about the pros and cons of different ways of post-processing.

And that's just the start. The main focus of this online workshop is on how to take your shots from average to awesome. You’ll be amazed at how much more you can get out of your shots, not by buying more gear, but just applying some easy to learn guidelines. Along the way you'll also discover things like long exposure time lapse, hyperlapse and more. All of this will be explained and demonstrated in an easy-to-understand way.

This course puts you on the fast track to creating great time lapse images. Even if you already have some experience with time lapse, there will be a lot of things we’ll cover that will take your shots to the next level.


Personal feedback & online bonus content


The most valuable aspect of this course is the personal feedback you’ll get on your own work via email or Facebook, as you bring the things you learn into practice. You can ask questions any time. In addition you'll get access to a dedicated Facebook group, exclusively for the participants of this course.

After the course, you will continue to have access to the group for as long as you want, so the learning continues even after the course finishes, when future participants share their work. Every now and then, inspiring examples and case studies will be posted on the goup page as well.
