Shooting a timelapse is not a science. However, there are a few things you can do to improve your chances.
One of the challenges you need to overcome when shooting is determining the ideal setting for your camera. In this post, I will walk you through a few of the settings you will need to consider. I will also be asking a few questions that will help guide you towards the perfect settings for your given scenario. I will be covering the following:
- Gear Prep
- Camera Settings
- Shooting Modes
- RAW vs JPEG
- Post Processing
I have broken down the post into pre-production, production and post-production. Pre-production will break down how I approach shooting a timelapse as well as how I prepare before going out to shoot. Production covers the different settings and intervals and post-production gives you a brief breakdown of my workflow.
