There are so many food photography tutorials teaching us how to make food look as good and as appetizing as possible. But Burger King decided to challenge the classic food commercials we’re all used to seeing. They claim that “the beauty of real food is that it gets ugly.” So, they filmed a commercial showing a Whopper as it gets nasty and moldy over time.
Germany-based landscape photographer Christian Möhrle has created some stunning timelapse videos and photography and DIY tutorials. This time, the journey took him across several European countries where he shot images for his latest timelapse Exploring the Alps.
It took 5,000 kilometers (3,100 miles) of the journey, 50,000 photos, and a bunch of adventures, challenges and overcoming fears to get the shots for this timelapse. Christian shared with us how he did it, along with some funny and less funny details about his trip.
I see a lot of jibs, sliders, cranes and other doohickies appear across my screen as new gear is announced. Other than the ridiculous ones they use in Hollywood, not many of them grab my attention. But Edelkrone’s new JibONE certainly has. On first glance, it looks much like any other mini-jib for your camera, except that it has Edelkrone written on it. But this one also has built-in motors and can be controlled via your phone.
This is an effect that seems to be becoming popular lately, particularly with music videos. I’ve seen it in movies before, often to suggest some kind of mental haze the protagonist in the story might be feeling at any given time. It’s an interesting effect, and the principle is quite simple, although it can take some practice to pull it off effectively.
Essentially, it’s a timelapse, but with the camera moving in a way you’d expect it to move for video. Not along a slider or something. In this video, Justin Odisho explains the basics of how to shoot this kind of footage, and then how to edit it in Premiere Pro with a few ways to integrate it into your realtime footage.
Do you remember that awesome timelapse from a couple of years ago of 30 days at sea compressed down into 10 minutes by Jeff Tsang? Well, he’s going to give it another go. Only this time, he’s building a massive 24K resolution 360° waterproof camera rig in order to shoot it.
In this video, he breaks down all the gear he’s using to build the giant 360° camera rig, along with how and why it’s all been chosen. It’s a pretty mammoth project, especially considering he says it probably won’t earn back the purchase price, but boy is it impressive!
New York City was hit yesterday with the first snow squall this season and social networks were quickly flooded with photos and videos. And while the phenomenon looks pretty dramatic in real-time, timelapse videos make it look like an apocalypse!
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.
I’ve heard many parents saying that their kids grow up too fast. And it seems that 20-year-old Lotte Hofmeester has grown up in just five minutes. Well, in his father’s timelapse, that’s exactly what happened!
Dutch artist and filmmaker Frans Hofmeester filmed his daughter Lotte every week over the course of 20 years. He turned the footage into a fascinating timelapse, in which Lotte transforms from a newborn into a young woman right before our eyes.
While we were at IBC 2019, we stopped by the Syrp stand to take a look at the new Syrp Tilt Platform. While we were there, Ben from Syrp was just getting ready to set up a timelapse of the crowd around the stand, so we chatted a little about the Tilt Platform and then got Ben to show us how we can shoot timelapses of people using a Syrp slider system.
The New York Skyline is probably one of the most fluid in the world. Its outline is ever-changing with new buildings going up and old ones being replaced on a regular basis. Photographer and filmmaker Joe DiGiovanna spotted this from the window of his apartment in Weehawken, New Jersey, and decided that he wanted to capture it in timelapse.
French fellow timelapse photographer Emeric Le Bars went to meet with Joe to interview him about the project. Joe told Emeric that the project was born from a love of the city and the incredible view he had from his apartment. His mission is to film and post the sunrise over NYC every day for at least 30 years.
