    I really appreciate this amazing ppt. I learnt a lot. For me it was like when I realized how I could use HDR to help me capture something, it lets you see a scene differently. When I see clouds slowly rolling over a hill I get excited.
    I have a question. I’ve done a few time lapses with my canon 60d with Magic Lantern. I keep getting flicker in the final product. It’s because the light changed, cloud covering the sun etc… Bulb ramping works good for gradual changes but I don’t think it work for one frame at a time changes. I tried dragging the shutter like you explained to combat this but I don’t think it gets rid of it completely. I don’t see this issue in the high class stuff. Is it a post processing issue? I have aperture 3, PS CS6 and final cut pro. I don’t know of any trick other then finding the offending slides manually and adjusting them.
    Thanks again for your free info on time lapses!
    I’ve read your stock craft and vision ebook and your food photography book. I love them!!!

      If you have clouds creating the flickering, it might be difficult to fully remove. I imagine the high-class stuff you’re referring to is just showing scenes which don’t have any flickering to begin with, or they are using software that’s removing it (like this: http://www.toolfarm.com/buy/gbdeflicker)
