The time lapse bar keeps getting raised. A few years back a mountain top covered with clouds shot with a digital camera was enough for us to make a small wow. But as technology gets more accessible, those are no longer enough. This video by Kirill Neiezhmakov has nothing to do with those static shots.
Creating super long slider or dolly shots is something many timelapse photographers and filmmakers dream about doing. For some, hyperlapse techniques and a lot of post production work is the answer. For others, that’s far too much work. When you look at the whole process, you can quickly see why. For others, the solution is a cable cam zipline type system.
It works with the Syrp Genie (review here), to provide you with a level of control that is otherwise difficult to achieve. Until now, though, these have been DIY solutions. In fact, you can see our own DIY Syrp Genie cable cam here. Today, though, Syrp have released their official cablecam, the Slingshot.
A mix of traditional timelapse and hyperlapse, this video from Vimeo user jansoli shows off New York in all its colourful glory. From the bright day light advertising, to the beautiful night lights, New York is a wonder of colour.
It’s an interesting mix of techniques. There’s even a few tricks in post to simulate flybys and shifting perspectives that weren’t possible in-camera. I’ve seen these post techniques applied before, but never with such effectiveness.
The promotional video for Microsoft’s new Pix app is very impressive. Sure, sometimes you want to get as much control as you can, so you fire up Camera+ or 645 Pro. Sometimes, though, you just want to bring up the app and grab a half decent snap.
Now, Microsoft have now launched Pix, a camera application that takes all the pain out of pointing & shooting with the iPhone. Sadly, there’s no Android version yet, and surprisingly no version for Windows Mobile, either.
Hong Kong is incredible mix of old and new. The opportunity to take stunning shots is there and is just waiting for the right creative vision to bring it to life. And Brandon Li has vision oozing our of his ears.
Hong Kong Strong is a 7 minutes journey into the city. And it takes the kind of spatial and temporal liberty that makes those seven minutes feel like 2. From vertigo effect (which is the first time I’ve seen being done in post), through aerial footage, hyperlapses and just about any other cinematic trick you can envision.
The results are spectacular.
When you think of DJI’s Osmo camera, timelapse photography likely isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But, as it turns out, the gimbal-stabilized 4K footage from the DJI Osmo is a perfect solution to creating incredible hyperlapse videos. [Read more…]
A year after being sued for allegedly copying its Air Jordan logo, Nike is now under fire for its latest shoes campaign starring FC Barcelona’s Neymar.
While one could usually think it might be a coincidence or argue the point of inspiration vs. imitation, it turns out both artists’ videos were referenced in Nike’s creative brief before the video was even created.
Last month, TriggerTrap asked photographers in five cities around the world to come together to create ‘the most diverse time-lapse ever made.’ After a month of receiving, organizing and editing, TriggerTrap has shared the final results, LapseWorld.
The cities TriggerTrap asked to go out and shoot were San Francisco, New York City, Cape Town, London and Milan. In each of the cities, photographers went out, gear in tow, and shot the world around them. [Read more…]
