Master the art of time lapse photography
Starting Monday, 6 January, 2014. Duration: 4 weeks.
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.
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, as you bring the things you learn into practice. You can also ask questions any time. In order for everyone to learn from each others work and questions, all of this takes place via a dedicated Facebook group, to which only the participants of this course have access.
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.
Optional - Personal video chats
If you choose this option, I'll include three 45 minute one-on-one video chats, during which I can explain things in more depth, or help you out with specific questions you may have. You can decide which specific topics you would like to learn more about. There will be only a small number of spots available for this add-on.
