I've written this so many times before - In the almost 180 year history of photography there have never been more creative tools at your fingertips than today! Technology never slows down, and Panasonic with its complete LUMIX line of cameras, is a perfect example. My pal Mark Toal is back today - after all, it is Mirrorless Mark Monday!
Time-lapse photography is another application built into almost all the cameras in the LUMIX family. But this is one of those features that goes well beyond just being fun to use. Think about your ability to create a time-lapse video for a bridal client, capturing the preparation before the wedding. Or, how about a charitable event you're photographing and the preparation/participation for something like the Alzheimer's Walk? And an even broader application, a Day in the Life portrait shoot of a family or child?
The concept of time-lapse photography isn't new, but you having the ability to create a time-lapse series easily is incredible. And, while it's easy to do, don't underestimate thinking through understanding how to capture the story you want. Mark does a terrific job in the short video at the end of his post and takes you through all the steps together with one more example.
