The Art of Time-Lapse – Making time fly with Photography

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT
475 South Fairfax Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90036 United States

Time-lapse movies are a great way to show long periods of time on a compressed scale. Aside from that they can be really fun to make and cool to watch!

From the way motion plays out in front of the camera to the duration of the event you are trying to capture, there are many elements that go into the creation of a time-lapse. In this class, you will learn all of the components necessary to make a professional looking time-lapse video from a series of still images. During this 6-hour course, not only will we learn in the classroom, but you will also shoot and process a time-lapse video.

Equipment Needed By Participants:
• Camera with ability to shoot still images in intervals or with the ability to take a cable release with interval abilities.
• Cable release with interval abilities (if camera can’t control).
• Tripod
• Neutral density filter of 6 or 10 Stops
• Spare battery for camera
• Laptop with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.
• Trial version (free) or better of LRTimelapse. After completion of class you will receive a coupon code for 10% off of this software if you decide to continue with your time-lapses.

Disclaimer: Because cameras and cable releases vary, you will be responsible for knowing how your equipment works before attending this class. If your camera can shoot time-lapse videos, but does not have an intervalometer
function that allows you to shoot a series of still images, you will need a cable release that has an intervalometer function. Also, make sure all required computer software is installed, operational and up to date.

Brian Leary
Originally from Central New York, Brian Leary has lived in Seattle for more then 15 years now.  Early on in his time in the Pacific Northwest, Brian developed a severe addiction to travel.  Through the benevolence of bosses at two different camera stores for more than a decade along with shooting everything from weddings to real world with his cameras.  Curious by nature he dove deep into all of the facets of photography.  During this time Brian realized a talent for taking complex theories within photography and distilling them to an easy to understand level. This lead to working with people in both group and inidividual settings to help them learn more about photography and what makes their own individual style. He eventlually left the life of retail camera sales to start his own photography education and workshop company, Light Source Journeys.  Brian has been writing for the Zeiss lenspire website since 2016 with topics ranging from nighttime landscapes to street photography and all matter of things in between.  By writing, speaking, teaching and leading workshops around the USA and the world, Brian loves to share both the art form of photography along with the places and cultures he is so passionate about with new people, hopefully, giving them a similar desire to explore further and be curious.
