About this item

In the newest entry in Peachpit's popular From Snapshots to Great Shotsseries, photographer John Carucci shares amazing techniques for creative time-related photography techniques, including long-exposure, time-lapse, and high-speed photography.


Carucci starts by reviewing your equipment needs, including filters, image stabilizers (tripods, monopods, beanbags, etc.), 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.


He then 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.
