"Essentials of Time-Lapse Photography"
by Silvana Della Camera
Digital photography has become a daily part of our lives. We consume and create photography almost constantly in our daily travels. A natural stepping stone to still photography is time-lapse, the art of capturing change over time. Only since the advent of modern digital cameras has time-lapse photography become so accessible.
Time-lapse photography produces stunning images that give viewers a glimpse of the world as they rarely see it. It is a technique that compresses timed capture over an interval of time into a concise creative rhythm. In this presentation, I will demonstrate how anyone could leverage this functionality with gear they already own.
A software engineer by trade, Silvana began her fascination with photography as a very small child. The early fascination turned into a lifelong obsession. Decades later her passion never faltered, but her view of the world evolved. Photographing what the eye can't perceive is what she loves best to capture. Past President of the Stony Brook Camera Club, she is the recipient of many photography awards
Her images have appeared in Lighthouse Digest, Yankee Magazine, and the Boston Globe, and were featured in Nikon’s 100th birthday celebration. She has presented and judged at camera club councils, camera clubs, and art associations throughout the US. Silvana helps others expand their own photographic vision through her photography workshops, photo walks, photo tours, private instruction, and club presentations on various photography topics including infrared, Milky Way, black & white, nightscapes, deep space photography, and time-lapse.
