Learn how to make a time lapse or stop motion photo collages.

I have included three video tutorials.
The first video tutorial gives you some tips on how to keep your camera stable when taking time-lapse and/or stop motion photos.

The second video tutorial one tells you how to control light and exposure levels between different shots to minimise time-lapse flickr.

Even though these first two tutorials are about taking time-lapse photos to create time-lapse videos, the principles they teach should still be applied to your photos for best results.

The third video tutorial one tells you how to put your photos together using Gimp to create a collage or montage of time-lapse photos, but it can be applied using stop-motion photos too.

Tips for Night-time Photography

Tips for Night-time Photography | Writer of various subjects | Scoop.it
People who hesitate to take pictures in the dark do so for a variety of reasons, the most common one being that they don't understand the full workings of their camera and how to adjust its settings to give pleasing results.
Evelyne Mercer's insight:

People who hesitate to take pictures in the dark do so for a variety of reasons, the most common one being that they don't understand the full workings of their camera and how to adjust its settings to give pleasing results. Another reason is safety - most photographers feel that they would be making themselves a target for muggers and thieves if they were to venture out alone at night to take photos.

In this article I will attempt to give some suggestions to help photographers work around those obstacles and limitations so that they can feel more confident about taking photos at night.

The first part focuses on the technical aspects of taking photos at night. This article assumes that you have a basic understanding of photography and of your camera's features.

The second part focuses on the safety aspects of night photography.
