How to Make a Stop Motion by katherine hopkins

Start with all your photos or objects gathered together in one place.

Have someone hold the camera for you or use a tripod to stabilize your images.

Move your images one by one and take a photo after every movement. Make sure not to move the camera too much in between your shots, or else your stop motion video won't look as smooth.

The photos shown here are taken at a poor angle so it would be better if they were taken from a bird eye's view.

After taking all of your necessary photos, import them in order into a movie editing software like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker. Delete frames that aren't needed or came out blurry.

Once all your photos are chosen and imported into a movie making program, you can adjust the time that each photo will show. The shorter the time, the smoother your final stop motion will look.

You can choose to add music to enhance your stop motion and make it more enjoyable for the viewer.

Export your movie and upload it to YouTube or Vimeo to show it off!
