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.
I recently received my shiny new ASUS ZenFone 5, which just went on pre-order in the UK today. As an ASUS Brand Ambassador, I can’t exactly review this phone without it being perceived as a little biased (even if I’m being completely objective), so I’m not posting a review. But what I can do is show you how I use it to help me with my photography and the apps I use to do that.
These apps aren’t specific to the ASUS ZenFone 5. They should be available to users of just about any modern Android device. And some are even available for that other mobile platform. To illustrate the features of some of the apps, I went out over the weekend to shoot a video of them in use. If you want to miss my unboxing and get straight to the apps, then skip ahead to about 4:10.
Timelapses have become so common now that they’re almost cliché. Like every other type of photography or filmmaking, they’ve gotten to the point where creating something, anything is quite easy. But making ones that really stand out is the challenge. Hyperlapse is like Timelapse on steroids. Not only are you speeding up time, but you’re moving your camera through space, too.
Doing them well is even more difficult to pull off than a great timelapse. But they’re not that difficult to get started with. In this video, professional hyperlapse photographer (yes, that’s a real thing!) Matthew Vandeputte shows us the easy way to shoot hyperlapses. Handheld without any kind of tripod, gimbal or any other support system.
The Italian city of Florence is known as the birthplace of the Renaissance and the Italian language. Even in the 21st century, this city manages to preserve the spirit of ancient Italy. Kirill Neiezhmakov is known for his creative timelapse, and this time, he dedicated one to the beautiful city of Florence. He shows you the city and its architecture and skyline, but also the enchanting interior of some of its buildings. He shares with DIYP some details about his latest video, as well as some photos he took during the process.
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.
The timelapse movies don’t seem to have come as thick and fast as they did last year. There’s been a few good ones, showing rare events and unusual techniques. But still not in the quantities that 2016 brought. One person we can always rely on to give us some timelapse and hyperlapse eye-candy, though, is Kirill Neiezhmakov.
In the film, White nights in Saint Petersburg, we’re taken on a tour of St Petersburg, Russia. We start in the evening, going through the night, with fireworks and a wild variety of coloured lights. Kirill’s got hyperlapse down to an art form, with some very cool tricks in post to take things to the next level.
It’s hard to stand out in the flood of incredible timelapse videos. But Kirill Neiezhmakov certainly manages to capture viewers’ attention with his incredible timelapse and hyperlapse videos. This time, he presented us with hyperlapse of the wonderful city of Rome, the capital of Italy. It caught my attention from the first frame and kept it until the very end.
Kirill didn’t only create technically flawless and interesting hyperlapse, but it also contains a story, which I find particularly interesting. He shared with us some of his experiences and details, as well as some of the photos taken in Rome during the making of another of his gorgeous hyperlapse works.
