Course Description

Have you ever tried to photograph a sky that is breathtakingly stunning but simply won’t translate into a single image? What if you could capture the movement in the clouds and share the magnificence you see in the landscape? Welcome to the amazing world of time-lapse photography, which allows you to do exactly that.

Our first session introduces us to each other and to the tools that help create time-lapses images. (This workshop is open to all skill levels and to anyone with a camera that can take photos at intervals, a GoPro, or an intervalometer.) Mark Kettenhofen goes in-depth with his own experience photographing stunning landscapes and shares the necessary instruction for you to go out and create your own.

Then we move inside, where Kristi Odom talks about her successes and failures crafting time-lapse images of flowers and mushrooms, while guiding you through the process of making images at home. We also dig into some creative techniques for post-processing, like image-stacking and using reflections and duplications.

Whether you’re capturing a blossom as it dances open or having fun with fungi, this new skill puts a “wow” into your visual art. As you spend time with Mark and Kristi, you discover that when to comes to time-lapse photography, the sky is not just the beginning but also the limit!
