BTS: Corey Rich on the Most Effective Way to Set Up & Shoot a Night Sky Time-Lapse


As part of Nikon’s continuing effort to promote its gear and ambassadors while teaching you something at the same time, the company has put together yet another inspirational and educational video we felt was worth sharing with you.

Featuring outdoor and editorial photographer Corey Rich, the above video walks you through the process of setting up and shooting a night sky time-lapse.


Coming across as an obvious commercial for Nikon, Rich touts the D800 and its list of impressive features that make shooting time-lapses as simple as possible. But it’s not the gear that we’re interested in.

Throughout the video he shares his process, giving great, concise advice for anyone that’s looking to get into time-lapse photography — especially the type that’s done in the dark.

The video comes in at just under three minutes, so it’s a fairly quick watch. Check it out to follow Corey on his adventures, and be prepared to take some notes for the next time you head out.
