This book frees you from boring shutter speeds of snapshot photography and liberates the creative soul. Instead of grabbing a quick moment you will now be able to capture something so much more impressive when you play with time. This includes the ultra long durations that collect a bunch of time in the same long exposure; a group of images shot in succession that imitate a quickly played movie; and the really fast moments that freeze action in a blink of an eye.


The writer starts off by reviewing your equipment needs, including filters, image stabilizers like tripods, monopods, beanbags, etc. Then goes on to software and more. Next, he explains the basics of long-exposure photography, demonstrating how to effectively capture time in nighttime cityscapes, photos of the night sky, and in brighter light using neutral density filters. Along the way, you'll learn the fundamentals of blurring, shooting in RAW, and balancing flash and ambient light.

The essentials

He walks through the essentials of time-lapse photography: how to regulate your camera's motion, determine the best duration to use, and use software to perfect your images. Carucci's time-lapse section is complemented with a complete online video tutorial on capturing effective time-lapse sequences.

You'll also find expert coverage of high-speed photography, including choosing shutter speed, stopping action with flash, shooting sports, and more. Carucci concludes by helping you develop and perfect your own aesthetic, with tips on properly framing your scenes, creative composition, and effective use of color and tone.

Time Lapse, Long Exposure, and Other Tricks of Time features beautiful full-color images, clear design, and John Carucci's friendly, knowledgeable voice. It's a pleasure to learn from - and if you've ever wanted to master any of these techniques, it's the guide you've been waiting for.
