What are time-lapses?
Practical thoughts on the time-lapse technique - Part III
Time lapsing step-by-step
Lets have a more practical look on how a time-lapse comes into being by using a DSLR. In this part I will share my experiences that I had in the field far away from home.
The photo travel to the southwest of USA offered me excellent opportunities to practice the time-lapse technique. Expecting only "dead rocks" and thus little action for a real-time video I concentrated on revealing those subtle movements in the shadows and in the sky that is not visible to the naked eye.
