Shooting Time-Lapse Photography at Night - Photography Tutorial

Shooting Time-Lapse Photography at Night

Continuing where we left off from Dave Morrow’s article on How to Plan for Astro Photography, The Slanted Lens takes us step-by-step, though the process of setting up and shooting an astro time-lapse.

At the beautifully isolated location of Mono Lake, J.P. gives us suggestions on ideal shooting locations to capture the ‘Milky Way’. We also take a look at how to plan for shooting and what equipment we need, specifically a wide-angle lens that can stop down to f/2.8, and a good shutter release remote.

In the video, JP shoots 20 second exposures at an ISO of 2,000, with a 5-second rest between exposures, for around 4 hours.

To focus he changes his shooting mode to video and manually focuses at a x10 zoom, rather than shifting to infinity. He also uses a Daylight white balance.

One thought on “Shooting Time-Lapse Photography at Night

  1. Probably not the right place for this but I see you are offering a $20 discount to people buying both Raya Pro and the tutorial at the same time. What about those people, like myself that bought Raya Pro at the full price when the tutorial Mastering Raya Pro wasnt available? Im still not getting along with Raya Pro as well as I should and need the tutorial and feel that the same discount should be offered to us. Any comments on this?
