In the Holy Grail Course, I give you more information on how to shoot beautiful day to night timelapses and give more details. It's more an intermediate to expert level. I show you how to change the settings in live while shooting and I do the post-production of 3 kind of Holy Grail timelapses.
I can assure you that after watching those 2 complete courses, you will be an expert in Timelapse Photography. You'll know exactly what to do in any given situation!
Holy Grail Day to Night Timelapse Course
The Holy Grail Day to Night Timelapse Course is a hive of information for anyone who wants to learn how to shoot and edit this kind of timelapse videos. They are not easy to do because you have to change the settings (ramping) during the timelapse shoot. Then, you use the Holy Grail Wizard tool of LRTimelapse to eliminate the flickering.
In this 1 hour and 20 minute course, divided into 13 videos and 3 main parts, I give you so much information on how to shoot, edit and color correct those kind of timelapses to end up with a flicker free video.
You will learn how to create those kind of Holy Grail timelapses
Before you watch this course, you need:
- LRTimelapse 4 (free up to 400 photos)
- Adobe Lightroom
- After Effects (optional)
If you download this course, you'll get
- 13 instructional videos to learn how to shoot and edit Holy Grail Day to Night Timelapses.
- The 3 final videos for your personnal use
- A Raw sequence of 900 photos of the Downtown Los Angeles Sunset to practice in the same time you are watching the tutorial.
- A personal support in case you have any issues or questions regarding Holy Grail Timelapses.
Video 1 - Introduction (1:24)
In this quick video, I introduce the 3 different parts of this course from the pre-production to the post-production, including the production.
Video 2 - Pre-production (7:15)
The pre-production is very important. You need the correct gear and accessories to shoot a 2 or 3 hours long timelapse. I also explain how to chose a good subject because it has to be interesting from day to night. Knowing when to start a Holy Grail to catch the Golden Hour light is also important and I give you some tips in this video about this matter.
Video 3 - Production (10:40)
The production is probably the most important part in this course. I give you tons of informations about my settings at the beginning, my interval and how to change the settings. Ramping is what makes Day to Night Timelapses possible, so you need to be comfortable with this.
I show you in live how I change the settings on my Canon 6D.
Video 4 - Intro Post-Production (1:201)
I introduce the 3 types of Holy Grail Timelapses that we are going to edit and color correct using LRTimelapse and Lightroom.
Note: After a SD card issue, I won't be able to work on the timelapse I shot in video 3 "Production". But it's not a big deal, I have plenty of amazing and beautiful day to night timelapses we can use for this tutorial.
Video 5 - Post-Production: NYC Day to Night LRTimelapse (5:34)
In this first post-production video, I show you LRTimelapse and the Holy Grail Wizard. It's an amazing tool to remove the flickering due to the difference of exposure during the day to night. It's important to know how to use it to get a flicker free timelapse videos at the end.
Video 6 - Post-Production: Colors Correction on Lightroom (10:38)
I import my photos in Lightroom and show you how to get some nice colors and contrast from day to night.
Video 7 - Visual Deflicker (5:56)
I go back to LRTimelapse to create the Visual Preview and use the Visual Deflicker. Sometimes, even after using the Holy Grail Wizard, you can have some flickering left, so it's important to know how to correctly use the Visual Deflicker tool. I teach you how to use it by selecting an area of your timelapse with smooth light transition.
Video 8 - Creating the video from the RAW sequence (8:54)
Our timelapse is now ready to be created. I teach you how to create the final video from your sequence using 2 different ways. The first one using only LRTimelapse and Lightroom and the second one with After Effects.
Video 9 - DTLA Day to Night LRTimelapse and Lightroom (14:12)
Having the sun in your shot change a lot of things. This is why I decided to include the post-production of one of those timelapses where the sun sets in my shot. I had some issues during the shoot because my foreground became very very dark. I am going to show how to fix that using Lightroom to end up with a not too grainy video.
Video 10 - Visual Deflicker (4:04)
One more time, I create the Visual Preview and use the Visual Deflicker of LRTimelapse to remove the remaining flickering.
It's important to know how to use this tool, that's why I am showing you a second time with a different timelapse.
Video 11 - Las Vegas Night to Day LRTimelapse and Lightroom (13:38)
Sunrises are a little different that sunsets. In this video, I show you what settings I used to shoot this beautiful sunrise and why I decided to change only the shutter speed and not the aperture or ISO.
Then we edit it and color correct it using LRTimelapse and Lightroom!
Video 12 - Visual Deflicker (2:01)
Finally, I am using LRTimelapse to do the Visual Deflicker. This time I use the entire image instead of a specific area.
Video 13 - Conclusion: 5 mistakes to avoid (5:59)
In this last video, I am talking about 5 mistakes you should avoid doing during a day to night timelapse. It's based on all the questions and comments I received on Facebook, Youtube and Instragram about those kind of timelapses.
