In part one of this Tech Tip, photographer and director Corey Rich walked us through the principles behind how to create multi-axis-controlled time-lapse. Now, he’s going to show us how to actually do it, with stunning results. The process begins by scouting a beautiful location—you’re looking for a landscape with a great composition, paying careful attention to the foreground as that’s going to be what creates a nice parallax effect. Corey provides his complete settings for a Kessler Second Shooter and Nikon D810, as well as his checklist for making sure that everything is correct before beginning. Once you depress that shutter and begin your time-lapse intervalometer, the trick is to sit back, not second guess yourself, and enjoy your position for the next few hours.
