The 7 Steps of Time Lapse Photography - At a Glance

Time lapse photography doesn't have to be complicated if you follow a relatively simple process. We've highlighted the seven steps to time lapse, featuring a rundown of this process and helpful links to resources that we offer to help you get the job done.

 

Plan the work. Work the plan. Identify your desired outcome and location/project details (duration, power source, schedule, wifi access etc.) to help guide your kit build. Our time lapse calculator is a great resource for this.

 

Once you know the type of power you'll use, how much of It you need, and wifi connectivity requirements, you're ready to make your purchase. We offer several great customizable pack solutions to ensure you get exactly what you need.

 

Testing Is the most crucial step, yet Is the step most often overlooked. Plan for ample testing within your workflow for a seamless project every time. Read about five common mistakes people make (hint: lack of testing is a big one!). 

 

With your kit In hand and your testing successfully complete, you're ready to deploy your time lapse solution. Unsure of the best way to mount? We have several options for you to choose from.

 

The days of cumbersome monitoring and image retrieval are long gone. Tap Into Blink Email for basic monitoring stats. Or step up your game with CloudX or CloudX Pro. Did someone say automatic image upload to the cloud?

 

You successfully captured your project. Now It's time to put it all together in post production. Check out our Definitive Guide to Construction Time Lapse to see a list of post production tools we recommend 

 

Make your footage work hard for you. Whatever the reason was for capturing It in the first place, there are many other ways you can use it beyond that: update stakeholders, PR, marketing, create progress videos, and more. Learn how construction video marketing will drive more business.
