5 Time-Lapse Photography Tips for Beginners

If you're looking at getting into creating time-lapse videos, you can try to learn it by trial and error, but that can take a lot of time. You can save yourself a great deal of time by spending just a few minutes learning a few of these tips.

In this video, filmmaker, photographer, and creator of the 30 Year Time-Lapse, Joseph DiGiovanna, shares his five tips on getting started making time-lapse videos. Whether you're using your smartphone or camera, Joseph has you covered.

Five simple tips to save hours of figuring it out yourself? Count me in!

Covering gear, smartphone apps, and programs such as Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and LR Timelapse, Joseph gives you the scoop on getting started.

I particularly like it when a video not only teaches you what you should do but things you shouldn't do as well. Often, it's the things you shouldn't do that mess up an otherwise beautifully executed plan or learning process.

Joseph also gives a few tips on what software to use for post-processing and his favorite software for time-lapses. Whether you're using a smartphone or an interchangeable lens camera, you'll be sure to learn something if you're new to creating time-lapses.
