Timelapse Death Valley is an intimate timelapse photography workshop led by award-winning Cinematographer & Timelapse specialist, Ron Risman. 

 

The workshop is designed to teach you how to capture breathtaking timelapses using your DSLR or mirrorless camera  -  and is open to photographers and cinematographers of all skill levels.  

 

The dates for this workshop were carefully selected to allow both the capture of the incredible dark sky, as well as to allow moon light to enhanced the foreground in our landscapes for a while each evening.  Without moon light the beautiful landscapes of Death Valley would go dark once the sun sets.

Timelapse: Death Valley - Advanced Timelapse Workshops

Our 3-Day Timelapse Death Valley 2015 workshop is open to photographers and cinematographers of all skill levels, though we highly recommend that you have a good understanding of how to change settings in your camera to control shutter, aperture, and ISO. Familiarity with Adobe Lightroom is also recommended.

 

In this workshop you'll learn how to capture professional quality timelapses by learning how to eliminate flicker, how to change the overall look and feel of a timelapse just by changing a setting or two, how to choose the right interval and exposure, and how to post process each of your timelapses to create stunning timelapse clips and films.

 

You'll also learn how to reduce noise, light your foreground, and what to look for when composing your scene.
