If you dream about a trip to Europe, Prague is the place you shouldn’t skip. The capital of Czech Republic is rich with things to see, do and of course – things to photograph. Kirill Neiezhmakov visited this beautiful city last year, and brought us another one of his famous timelapse and hyperlapse videos. He walks us through the city streets and offers us a pint of beer to refresh in his latest video called “A Glass of Prague.” Check it out.
Kirill shared with us the information about the gear he used for shooting:
- Canon 2 x 60D, 70D
- Sigma 10-20 mm f/4-5.6
- Tokina 11-16 mm f/2.8
- Samyang 8 mm f/3.5
- Canon 17-55 mm f/2.8
- Canon 70-200 mm f/2.8L
- Vanguard Abeo Pro tripod
- GoPro Hero 4 Black
- Adobe After Effects
Kirill and his wife Aleksandra visited Prague in August 2016, and he shot the material for his video over the course of 8 days. In May and June this year, it took around 3 weeks to post-process the images and create the timelapse. They met a Facebook friend who lives there, who showed them a lot of interesting places around the whole city.
Prague is a beautiful city, with interesting architecture and lots of viewpoints. Charles Bridge is one of the most popular tourist destinations, and Kirill was surprised how many people were there in the sunrise to take photos. However, within half an hour, the place became completely empty.
Since Czech Republic is famous for great beer, Kirill and Aleksandra incorporated it in the timelapse. She holds the glass and drinks the beer throughout the video, which gives her energy to endure the fast-paced walk through Prague. In the end, she throws the glass and realizes – it’s time to go home. I believe they both had fun filming this, and they left me with a strong wish to visit Prague. Or at least have a pint (or two) of Czech beer.
