If you’re feeling brave, share the post link to our section Facebook group with the hashtag #ContentChallenge.

Need some help getting started?

Not sure how to timelapse?

Start by playing around with the camera settings in your phone. If you need a guide, here’s one for Android and one for iPhone.


Look for the right subject – ideally you want something where part of the shot is still, and the other part moves or changes. Think clouds across the sky; cars passing; sun sets; make up tutorials; attaching your camera to your bike and going for a ride, or just watch some plants.

Use a tripod or still surface. If you don’t have a tripod, find a way to keep your phone or camera still throughout the shot.

Have a go!

The quickest way to learn what works well is to try, watch, adjust, and try again.
