Nowadays, regular time-lapse videos are pretty much a thing of the past. I’ve seen more hyper-lapse videos in more cities around the world lately. In the “Paris in Motion” videos that I posted a few weeks ago, Mayeul Akpovi was kind enough to post the making of video, and how it was done in post. It seems like the amount of post-production work that’s involved in making a hyper-lapse video is far from that of a regular ‘lapse. Adobe After Effect is pretty much Greek to me, so it’ll be a very long time before you see me with a hyper-lapse.
Until then, keep enjoy the videos that photographers around the world post up. This latest video found was shot by an Australia-based photographer named Konstantin Basov. I really like the first segment where the camera pans a very big angle showing Sydney from an aerial view atop. Can you believe it was shot with a P&S?
