Composing The Dunes Timelapse

Putting together a timelapse is a long and exhausting process. Shooting is really only the first part of a multi-step workflow that requires hour upon upon hour behind a computer monitor as you slowly stitch together scenes to make up a coherent whole. That said, it's an immense amount of fun and one of the most interesting ways to capture a scene. During last year's Composing The Dunes Workshop I shot several timelapse sequences with the aim of putting together a video of the locations that we visited. This video is the result of that: https://vimeo.com/119947394. 


The images were created using a Nikon D3x and D800 as well as a Fujifilm XT-1. Lenses were Nikkor 20mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm,  and 24-120mm lenses and a Fujifilm 18-55mm and Samyang 12mm. I processed everything into timelapse clips using the excellent LRTimelapse software and then clipped it all together using Premiere Pro. Admittedly I borrowed a couple of scenes from the 2013 recce tour, but they are the same locations and similar conditions.
