Instagram has quietly shut down two more of its apps. Boomerang and Hyperlapse have been removed from app stores, and you can no longer find them as standalone apps. Together with shutting down the IGTV app, this is another Meta’s step of focusing on Instagram reels as much as possible.
The last couple of years has been tough on us all, but especially those of us who love to travel. Well, even if we haven’t been able to get away, hyperlapse and timelapse photographer extraordinaire Kirill Neiezhmakov has started getting out and about around the world with this camera again.
In his latest video, he takes us on a whirlwind tour through Singapore. As usual, Kirill takes us on a journey around the city, showing off what makes it such a beautiful and wonderful place to visit.
Earlier this year, Kirill Neiezhmakov (the very talented timelapse/hyperlapse photographer) visited Singapore and we had the opportunity to meet up again. We visited several locations to check out the Singapore sights and sounds and some interesting places that are suitable for his personal timelapse project.
Timelapse is usually done on professional gear (such as DSLR cameras, motion control systems with sliders and pan-tilt modules, etc). All these come together to create the incredible visuals you typically see online. But it’s not for everyone. It is very strenuous to carry so much gear and can take a lot of time to set up and dismantle just one shot (not including the shooting time).
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a video from Matthew Vandeputte, but now he’s back with a good one for all you aspiring hyperlapse shooters that don’t have high-end cameras and lenses, gimbals, or other expensive and fancy gadgets.
During a recent social media meet up in London, Matthew borrowed a friend’s Canon EOS 200D (Rebel SL2) with the 18-55mm kit lens to provide us with some tips to show us how we can shoot hyperlapse sequences with very inexpensive equipment.
It’s been a while since we’ve featured work from hyperlapse filmmaker Kirill Neiezhmakov, but when I saw his recent film, Magical Places in Lisbon, I just had to share it here on DIYP. It’s a fantastic mix of hyperlapse, traditional timelapse, as well as realtime footage, which tells a fantastic story.
It’s quite different from the usual hyperlapse films we see these days and the mixture of footage at different speeds works really well. And, of course, especially when it has Kirill’s unique style applied.
We’re getting to a point where it feels like just about everywhere on earth has been photographed from every angle. And then posted to Instagram. That certainly seems to be becoming true for New York City, at least. And while we may feel like all photos start to look kind of the same, there are slight differences between each of the images.
These differences have allowed people like art director, Sam Morrison to create this 57-second Hyperlapse through NYC made entirely from 1,272 crowdsourced photos he found on Instagram.
Originally founded in 1325, Greater Mexico City has since become one of the largest metropolitan areas on earth, and the largest in the Western Hemisphere, housing more than 21 million people.
Amongst those 21 million people who call Mexico City their home is Tarsicio Sañudo. As an aerial filmmaker, he decided to shoot a drone timelapse of the city to document its iconic landmarks and beautiful surroundings. And boy does it look amazing.
Timelapse and hyperlapse aficionado Kirill Neiezhmakov has been creating some pretty amazing films over the last few years. He’s travelled all over the place from Hong Kong to the romantic streets of Rome and Prague. In his newest film, Kirill takes us on a whirlwind tour of the Principality of Monaco.
Recently, Fenchel and Janisch made a pretty cool flow motion video in Frankfurt (above). It was made for the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof hotel, to show off some of the beauty and life of downtown Frankfurt. This type of video is becoming very common as the hardware and software tools are becoming more available to photographers and filmmakers.
But how can you make one of your own? Such films require a variety of techniques, and the workflow that works best for you will depend on the gear and software you have. But Fenchel and Janisch put this video together showing their workflow and how they made the Frankfurt video.
Travel photography used to be one of the big earners in photography. These days, with as many people have a phone or camera in their pocket, half decent stock images of far-flung corners of the world are all over the place. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways you can stand out when it comes to documenting travel.
We’ve seen some great timelapses from folks such as Kirill Neiezhmakov who take us on wild rides through various cities around the world. But this one from Mwita Chaca of Mwendo just has a little something special about it.
