Of all the support emails we receive, ‘Where’s my order?’ is probably the most common. Really. When I was answering one this morning, it got me thinking: I know the supply chain intimately. It’s my job. But for anyone who isn’t privileged with a view of the portals and spreadsheets that comprise our internal machinations, maybe an insight would be valuable.
With Timelapse Pro you can build a timelapse sequence using the delay and intervalometer blocks, give the sequence a name, and then save it. As well as building specialised sequences for complex timelapse projects, you can save timelapse sequences for your frequently shot subjects, too, for example clouds or sunrise.
Having a studio, or at the least, access to a studio, is some kind of holy grail for so many photographers. With directional lights, interchangeable backgrounds, oodles of space, and black-out blinds, it feels as if you should be able to make anything happen in a studio. And maybe you can. But we’re going to let you into a secret: you don’t actually need a studio to create studio-like images.
Photography and video used to feel worlds apart, however that's changing and we're rapidly seeing a convergence of the two. Most stills cameras now are also highly capable video cameras, with many offering 4K video, high frame rates and more. If you haven't already dipped your toes into the world of video, now would be a good time to start!

Capturing photographs is a brilliant way to spend your time. (Obviously we're a little biased!) But one of the downsides is that kit can be expensive. We've got some great money saving cheats and tips to help you save those pennies, and still have fun creating some awesome photography!
Whether you’re a hobbyist, an amateur, a professional, or anything in between, getting your photography out there can seem like a daunting task. But let’s face it, it’s even more frustrating when you are putting time and devotion into your craft for no one to see it. To help put an end to that, we’ve put together some top tips on how to get your photography work seen.
When you’re out shooting lots of long exposures or a long timelapse (or even shooting a short film on your DSLR), powering your camera can be problematic. These are all pretty power intensive activities so you’ll find yourself getting through lots of small camera battery packs.
If you have a camera, the chances are you probably have a camera bag to put it in (unless you throw caution to the wind and shove it in a normal backpack, that's okay too). Along with your camera, your camera bag is the one thing you'll be pretty much guaranteed to take to every shoot, so we've put together our list of the things you should have in your camera bag but probably don't already...

Our friend Panos used Triggertrap to construct his awesome timelapse video, Greek Skies. If you’ve not seen it yet, do go and watch it! The entire project was a serious undertaking, and as you can imagine, Panos has amassed a wealth of knowledge in the process. He’s been kind enough to share some of that with us.
There is something enchanting about the night sky, so there is no doubt as to why it is the subject for many photographers. But I bet you've never seen the night sky as beautiful as it is in Greek Skies, a gorgeous timelapse shot by our good friend Panos.
If you're setting out on a long exposure photoshoot, you'll be devoting a fair bit of time and effort into making awesome images and the last thing you want is to make a little mistake early on that can send your whole shoot into a frustration fuelled fiasco.
Long exposure photography is awesome; being able to shoot long exposures during the day with help from a set of ND filters is even more awesome. But if you’re shooting long exposures with a DSLR camera, there’s an important point you need to remember.
