Compared to getting to that location, shooting the timelapse was relatively easy! What are the minimal requirements for shooting a timelapse like this?
1. A camera that will shoot automatically on intervals
2. A way to compile those images into video
There are simple ways to do this with a GoPro, smartphone, and other ‘in camera features.’ However, when most people think of timelapse – they think of gorgeous wide landscapes, lava flowing, or dark night skies. Almost all of these sequences are shot in full RAW on DSLRs like the Canon 6D. There’s probably some amazing on-location sound to go along with it too.
My goal with this guide is to give you a brief overview of the cameras, lenses, audio recorders, and other gear I use to shoot my films – why I’ve chosen to use these items – and how to use them. For a much more in-depth take on how I shoot timelapse, check out my online course with Story & Heart.
