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.

From K. Mahon:
Just what I was looking for to get started with time-lapse photography. The book provides easy to follow steps for setting up, taking and then processing time-lapse photos. There's also a nice comparison of various pieces of equipment and software along with recommendations and tips that I found very helpful.
I have been a serious landscape photographers for several years and only now am getting into time lapse photography. But I needed help in the area of processing my video so I downloaded this book. After looking at the table of contents I thought I would breeze through the first half of the book as I knew enough about setting the camera up. I was very surprised that there were many tips and ideas about setup, flickering ect that I didn't know.
The book is well laid out and easy to understand. I saved a little money by doing a digital download and now have it on my Ipads. So I can take it with me in the field if needed. In a nutshell if you are wanting to do time lapse this book will be more help than you might think even if you are an advanced photographer. I would buy again and if you want to do time lapse you need this book. It is a bargain at the price.
From John Hudson:
Ryans book has given me the start I needed to try time lapse photography. At the age of 70,I thought I would try something different with my photography and this publication gives me all the info I needed and more. Thanks Ryan for a great book.
