Want to learn how to take panorama images of the Milky Way over scenic landscapes? How to create time-lapse movies of the stars appearing in a darkening sky? How to stack star trails and meteor shower composites? It’s all here.
Dyer’s 500-page 2nd Edition includes 40 embedded HD videos with examples of time-lapse techniques to illustrate the topic as no previous book has done. The ebook also includes 60 step-by-step tutorials on how to use software such as Photoshop, Lightroom and LRTimelapse.
