Timelapse Imagery
Shiv Verma

A time-lapse video essentially compresses time into a smaller space, creating some exceptional and evocative results.

In theory, time-lapse videos are easy to create – after all, you simply take a few hundred photos, one after another, line them up in a video application and you are done. Not true, if you want to create a stunning, seamless, flicker-free time-lapse video. There is a lot more involved than setting up a camera and capturing the sequence.

With digital cameras, we have infinite possibilities to capture time-lapse sequences and create exceptional video with even the simplest digital point-and-shoot cameras to DSLRs. This session will provide the basics necessary to create time-lapse videos.

We will cover the following topics:

Camera settings

Intervalometer settings

Settings based on the speed of activity

Creating a quick video using Lightroom

Creating a video using LR Timelapse

Through his images he wants to share with you the magic, his emotions, and his experiences from the moment he presses the camera’s shutter.

As much as Shiv enjoys the process of image capture, from stills to motion, he equally enjoys the post-process. The software and tools he uses, vary by image and subject matter, but he strongly believes that these techniques are represented as an integral part of his creation.

Shiv believes that his work, whether it be creatures, scapes, or still life, is most successful when it exudes the beauty and richness of life. To Shiv, a successful image is a personal opinion, what is more relevant than the subjective quality of an image, is how personally compelling that image is and the emotions it triggers in the viewer.

Shiv devotes a great deal of his time formally reviewing photography-related products, to education in digital photography and he is a speaker and competition judge. Shiv leads photo tours and workshops worldwide, typically one tour a month.

His book Time-Lapse Imagery was published in February 2014.
