Sunset & Timelapse Neutral Density Photography in Georgetown
Use Polarizing and Neutral Density Filters to Capture Sunsets & Timelapse Images
We are going to learn how to make a timelapse or hyperlapse with our cameras during a sunset at Georgetown Waterfront. Timelapses or hyperlapses are sequences of images that together create a video.
During the 2 hours that we will be there, we will also be able to take beautiful images of the sunset using a polarized (PL) or a neutral density (ND) filter.
This is a great opportunity to learn and practice the techniques of photography using filters. A polarized or neutral density (ND) filter is the perfect tool for creating amazing long exposure images by day or by night.
What to bring to this workshop?
- 2 tripods: one for the camera and one for the phone. Plus a phone holder for one of the tripod mounts.
- Filters: Polarizing (PL) filter and one Neutral Density (ND) filter – ND8 or ND10 strength/darkness.
- Extra memory cards
- Extra charged battery
- Polarizing, Neutral Density filters, remote release
- Weather appropriate clothing
