Mastering the Intervalometer for Night Photography and Long Exposures

If you've ever scratched your head, bamboozled by an intervalometer, then scratch no more! Well, at least watch this video first ...

You may not know I also have another job in the photo industry. I created a presentation about using an intervalometer to support a smaller technique class at the 2016 OPTIC Imaging Conference held by B&H Photo and Lindblad Expeditions. And it was so fun (and useful!) that I decided to make a video out of it so even more people could benefit.

For the TL;DR crowd:

Vello Intervalometers work from left to right. When configuring, make sure you check every one of them and keep in mind that they run in sequence:

  1. Delay
  2. Long
  3. Interval
  4. Number (Qty)

If something is awry, then chances are something was set in a screen you may not expect. Check out the video above for the full rundown and lots of examples.
