I'm also teaching a course on Skillshare with this book as a textbook.
For me it's about freedom. Time-lapse is a strange thing: It frees you from the normal flow of your routine and all that busyness of life, yet at the same time it can connect you to your surroundings more than anything else.
Do you think time-lapse should be left to the pros? I don't think so.
Take some of the stuff shared here and invest it in your next clip but also throw some of it away, do your own tests and rewrite sections how you please. Don't let anyone tell you that you are doing things the wrong way. If you are getting the results you want then that's all that matters. Never forget that you are the artist and it's your story.
It's a real honor and privilege to partner with you on this time-lapse training journey. Thank you.
