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.
You might already be familiar with the name Kirill Neiezhmakov, at least if you love incredible timelapse and hyperlapse videos. We featured Kirill’s work on DIYP before, and I’m happy to present you with another fantastic hyperlapse he’s created.
This time, he took his gear to the capital city of Kazakhstan – Astana. He told DIYP a bit about his journeys to Astana and the process of making the hyperlapse. He also shared some BTS and other photos of Astana with us. It took him several returns to the city and quite some time to finish the project, but it was well worth it.
Other than coming home with great photos, traveling enriches your soul and helps you learn more about yourself, the others, and the world. A young Swiss couple shares this point of view, and they have even quit their jobs so they can travel Asia for six months. And it wasn’t for nothing. Sylvain Botter and Jenny Gehrig visited nine Asian countries and returned home with thousands of photos. They used them to create an epic hyperlapse called “Share Your Dream”, to share their adventure and inspire others to travel.
Many of us use Google Maps before planning a trip. But a young Italian student Matteo Archondis used it in a way more creative way. He created a hyperlapse trip around the world using nothing but screenshots from Google Maps. It takes you from Rome to Kyoto; from the deepest ocean to the highest peak – in 3,305 Google Maps images composed in a smooth hyperlapse video.
I love hyperlapses, and I was really into the Hyperlapse app for iOS when Instagram first released it. But, it always annoyed me that it would only shoot 720p footage. There aren’t exactly many options within the app itself besides the playback speed. Now, this is probably a hack that the rest of the world have known about for years already, but it’s new to me.
And along with this tip, photographer Matthew Rycroft brings along three more. One is a similar hack for Instagram’s Boomerang app which opens up some cool creative possibilities. There’s also a blacklight hack, and a 3D hologram thingy.
Many big cities around the world get a movie highlighting the city with stunning shots and eye capturing hyperlapse sequences. Now, Jerusalem got one of those movies, Voices of Jerusalem, made by team Kaveret.
This by no means was a small project. It is not easy to convey the many faces of the city with its many cultures, religions and conflicts. This is why it’s not surprising to hear the effort that went into making this movie.
Some of you might remember Kirill Neiezhmakov. He shot the timelapse sequence of the Dubai luxury hotel fire on New Year’s Eve. In that short, he mixed some real time footage with timelapse footage and zooms to great, but short, effect. Well, Kirill’s back with a new timelapse of Madrid, Spain and he’s taking those techniques up a notch.
Like the Dubai video, it contains a mix of shooting styles. These include normal real time video footage, timelapse and hyperlapse. The video also shows some great editing and post techniques, with interesting motion graphics. I don’t know if the few motion graphics it contains will be to everybody’s taste, but it’s a cool idea with great potential.
The time lapse bar keeps getting raised. A few years back a mountain top covered with clouds shot with a digital camera was enough for us to make a small wow. But as technology gets more accessible, those are no longer enough. This video by Kirill Neiezhmakov has nothing to do with those static shots.
