TECH TIP: Getting the Shot with Corey Rich: Advanced Time-Lapse Photography Part 2

In my latest Tech Tip for Adorama TV, I continue with Part 2 of advanced motion-controlled time-lapse techniques. In the first episode I spoke about the principles  and thought processes behind creating a multi-axis-controlled time-lapse. Now, I’m going to show you how to actually get your camera moving, panning and tilting while simultaneously capturing a time-lapse.

I provide setting for the equipment I use, including the Kessler Second Shooter mounted onto the Kessler Stealth Slider, as well as my Nikon D810. I also go through my checklist of what you need to make sure that your time-lapse goes off without a hitch, from removing your camera strap, to trouble-shooting potentially snagging cords, to making sure that your camera is on aperture priority and that manual focus is on.

And what I’ve learned is that, after you depress your shutter and begin your camera’s built-in intervalometer, the trick is to sit back, not second-guess yourself and just enjoy the beauty of your location. After all, you’re going to be there for a few hours!
