So often are timelapse videos stuffed full of vivid colors and bright tones that it almost catches us off guard when we come across a black and white timelapse that is every bit as breathtaking as their full color counterparts. Such is the case with this short video the team over at Fourth Dimension Video captured while spending 5 days in the quiet Scottish isle in June. The Isle of Skye features both, timelapse and some sweeping aerial drone shots. [Read more...]
Photographer and filmaker, Julian Tryba, is a big proponent of the do-it-yourself movement, having gone so far as to build a robot that follows people around and photographs them using information sent from their smartphones. But, that robot thing? It’s cool and all but, for Tryba that was college play. Now, he’s expanding his creativity through innovation by developing an interesting new way to edit timelapse footage. Drawing a little inspiration from Einstein’s relative theory, Tryba is using a technique he’s dubbed “layer-lapse” that’s similar to timeslice photography. [Read more...]
Most timelapses show us the beauty of big things that span time: Sunrises, Sunsets, boats being built and building erected. Photographer David de los Santos Gil shows us the beauty in small scale time lapse as he shot 11 flowers slowly opening up.
After sharing Roy Two Thousand’s Burning Man timelapse a couple weeks ago, I decided that I could probably cut back on my timelapse addiction for a while. After all, it would be pretty hard to top the slick camerawork of R2K. At least that’s what I thought at the time. Then I happened to come across this beauty, Into The Night, which was created by Barcelona based photographer/cinematographer, Jordi de Temple and explores both, Barcelona and California. Jordi throws in some low lying clouds, a little milky way action, sweet motion blurs, some fun tilt shift scenes, multiple holy grails for good measure, and some profoundly gorgeous and cinematic wipe transitions. Even the musical arrangement was spot on.
I know I said I was trying to avoid relapsing back into a timelapse hole, but…Wow. I would have felt guilty had I not shared this one with you all. Enjoy!
We featured a timelapse that showed us the city lights of a bustling Melbourne and now it’s time to see what else Australia has to offer. This time we’re visiting the famous Gold Coast by way of this sweet timelapse created by Joe Capra, a Los Angeles based photographer and filmmaker. Capra, who works under the moniker Scientifantastic, is no timelapse newbie. He’s worked for some major name clients including National Geographic and Discovery Channel, just to name a couple. You probably even remember Capra’s impressive Rio De Janero timelapse that we featured here last year.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at all his latest work, Australia’s Gold Coast – Timelapse, and see what it has to offer:
Instagram is making it easy for everyone with an iPhone to become timelapse creators with the new app it announced today, which the social photo sharing giant has dubbed Hyperlapse. In it’s infancy, Hyperlapse was nothing more than a side project a few developers from the Instragram camp decided to take on for the fun of it; however, the underdog of an app got its big break as it started circulating around the Instagram offices winning the hearts of all the employees. The positive reaction the app garnered among their own motivated Instagram to go public with it. A move, I suspect, will pay off big for the company given the popularity of it’s namesake app.
The app allows iPhone 5 users to capture up to 45 minutes of video footage to be converted into a hyperlapse all within the app. iPhone & iPod Touch 4 users can also use the app, but will be limited to 10 minute capture times. According to Hyperlapse Technical Support page, all devices must be running iOS 7 or later. [Read more...]
If you’ve ever lived in, or even just visited Tokyo, you are probably well aware of the vibrant nature and scenery that exists around every corner. As this timelapse by Bill Minhyuk Kim of Bokah Media shows us, Japan’s capital is full of bright flashing lights and a pulsing energy that’s undeniably Tokyo. The South Korean timelapse filmmaker has done a great job matching Tokyo’s sleepless vibes with this fast paced hyperlapse.
At times, the editing, and especially the color grading, of the clip present a real cinematic feel, which is nice technique to see in a timelapse every once in a while. Tokyo Timealapse is presented in 4k resolution (at 3840×2160). The entire film was photographed using a Canon Rebel t4i with a Sigma 10-20mm and a Sigma 50mm, to which I have to say, it’s nice seeing such good quality work done with a sub $1000 camera, check it out: [Read more...]
I recall a friend once passionately trying to convince me of the greatness of their favorite musician by explaining how the music was so good it caused my colleague existential despair by thinking nothing he ever created would be able to transcend, surpass, or even just achieve the same level of magnificence as the musicians work. Now, having watched this timelapse fresh out of Burning Man, I can honestly say I know what it’s like being able to relate to that feeling.
The photography of Roy Two Thousand and his second shooters, August Winkelman and Connor McNeill, is outstanding. This, of course, isn’t entirely surprising considering some of the other gems that can be found in Roy Two Thousand’s portfolio, including The Fertile Desert, which served as an inspiration to make Lake of Dreams.
While on a holiday in Portugal to accept a Best Timelapse award for his incomparably brilliant Moscow Night Timelapse/Hyperlapse, Kirill Neiezhmakov, like any good photographer, seized the opportunity to create his next treasure, Portugal Hyperlapse/Timelapse. Neiezhmakov is making a name for himself among timelapse and hyperlapse photography enthusiasts as one of the art forms leading filmmakers, and rightfully so. He has the uncanny ability to create his new magnum opus with every timelapse he puts out. This Lisbon and Sesimbra, Portugal are no exception.
Upon arriving in Lisbon from his home in Ukraine, Neiezhmakov, contacted Portugal based image maker, Francesco Cerruti for a helping hand in the making of the timelapse. The team traveled to multiple points of interest to make the film, capturing landmarks such as Eduardo VII Park (1:12), Arrábida Sesimbra (0:15) Rossio (1:02), and my personal favorite part of the timelapse, inside and underwater at The Oceanarium in Park of The Nations (1:33). Take a look:
Timelapse and hyperlapse photographer, Patrick Cheung, has just completed his latest timelapse project, a music video for a Hong Kong based hip hop group, utilizing some really awesome hyperlapse techniques. Take a look at the music video below, then keep reading for a video tutorial where Cheung teams up with Kai from DigitalRev to show us exactly how to replicate the hyperlapse shots using nothing more than equipment you probably already have.
