Tips and techniques One lump or two? Update: If you have questions about time lapse please contact me via my new Facebook page or join a photography workshop HERE.

(You must forgive me for adding the music – it seemed apt) OK, so it’s badly exposed and poorly composed, but it is nevertheless a time lapse film. Equipment Firstly, you need a camera.
