Have you ever wondered how some time-lapsers are able to work with the worlds top brands and clients OVER AND OVER?
They just seem to be able to create timelapses that have no flicker, hyperlapses that are insanely smooth. They just look so polished and professional. Kinda like these.
It’s easy to think you could NEVER make anything that looks like that.
Or that there's already too many time-lapsers and not enough clients in the world for everyone.
But the reality is YOU CAN. and their are WAY MORE BUSINESSES that need time-lapses than there are people specializing in time-lapse.
I know, It may seem overwhelming if you are currently asking yourself questions like.
- How do I stand out when everyone and their mom can shoot a time-lapse with their phone.
- I don’t know where to start
- What software should I use
- What camera settings should I be using?
- What interval should I use
- How do I shoot a day to night
- How can I color correct my timelapses to get that professional look?
Those where the questions I had when I first began.
But over the last few years I’ve learned how to work with high end clients charging thousands of dollars while others are hoping to make money off selling stock footage.
What’s the difference?
The main difference between a successful time-lapser and one who isn’t that a successful timel-apser knows two things you don’t.
#1. It’s not what camera you have that matters. It’s what you do with it that does.
Just think about it. What’s the difference between a Michelin star chef cooking lobster and steak vs you cooking lobster and steak. The Michelin star chef can charge hundreds of dollars while you might struggle just to break even.
It’s because the Michelin star chef had mentors, spent years honing their craft, and after that time is now able to do things with the same ingredients that no one else knows how.
Replace the lobster and steak with DSLR and a tripod and It’s the exact same thing.
With the proper training, effort and understanding, you can learn to create something that isn’t just beautiful, but something that makes people see things differently and invokes an emotion. And best of all it’s something everyone knows their nephew can’t create on their smartphone, even though you both might have the same ingredients.
It’s only the people who are HONING their craft through careful practice and intention. That’s what makes professional time-lapsers stand out from hobbyist.
You’ll be able to create shots like this.
