If you haven’t actually been to Paris, like me, you’re probably accustomed to seeing it’s more classic landmarks. You’re probably used to seeing a lot more of the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, or the Arc de Triomphe than you are to seeing the rest of the city. You’re used to seeing the romantic side, but you’re not used to seeing the urban side.
Videographer Mayeul Akpovi just released his latest addition to his Paris In Motion series. It is a fun, happy timelapse/hyperlapse series showing Paris in all its glory.
Through wonderful locations, interesting people and great cinematography Mayeul captures the uplifting side of the city. Being a four parts series it is interesting to see how Mayeul technique refined through the year he has been releasing those movies.
Two years ago we would have been thrown back by the minimal list of gear that Mayeul uses (5D Mark III, 24-70mm f2.8, 17-40mm f4 and a 70-300 lenses as well as ND2 to ND400 filters), but over the last year we learned that you don’t really need lots of gear to produce astonishing work.
As usual with those kinds of videos, sit back, go full screen and enjoy the show. [Read more...]
