A SNS timelapse, as I like to call them, is a timelapse of fast elements captured with a very fast interval, usually 1″. Sometimes, and with the right gear, it is possible to even shoot them with 0.5″ interval, or 2 frames per second.

The key to a good SNS timelapse lies in the subject and composition, and the perfect timing with whatever you are capturing. Start too early and half of the timelapse will be boring. Start too late and you will miss the good action.

So to create a perfect SNS fast interval timelapse, you need to understand your scene and your subject, and how it’s evolving through time in order to capture the right moment. Your timelapse will be done in a few minutes only, so you need to get it right the first time!


Timelapse photography is an art that is best learned with experience and passion. At this workshop, you will be able to develop your skills and learn the craft with two professionals in the best city in the world.
