Timelapse software tools used during workshop
We use Adobe Lightroom “Classic” CC (You can use the trial version ) and LRTimelapse (You can use the free version). Adobe After Effects (for rendering of RAW files) is optional, but preferred. For movie making (Audio + Visuals + Transitions) I recommend Adobe Premiere Pro, but you can use iMovie for free (on the MacOS). Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro have trial versions, but require the full Adobe Subscription after the end of the trial period. You are welcome to bring Apple Final Cut Pro instead of Premiere Pro, but I am not an expert on its use.

Recommended Camera Equipment
Check our gear guides
Our timelapse workshops require that you have a DLSR (or Mirrorless) camera which allows for manual settings of Aperture, Exposure duration and ISO.
The camera should support interchangeable lenses - FAST (F2.8 or faster) and WIDE (20MM or wider, 14MM is preferable) are best for nighttime photography (lenses can be rented on-line). You will also need a tripod and an Intervalometer (or a camera which supports Intervalometer functions natively in the camera). You will also need to bring a laptop (for processing your sequences). Once you've registered, you will receive a preparation guide and a list of useful apps for the workshop.
Kessler Crane Second-Shooter Motion Control “Sliders” are provided.
