Vadim Tereshchenko brings us this cool hyperlapse and wants you to now that you can do it too!
The L.A. photographer has been shooting hyperlapse for the past two years (the amount of time it took him to shoot this video). He at first shot it for fun, but now shoots for companies like VH1, AMC, and L.A. LIVE.
Unlike Instagram or other apps’ hyperlapse, Tereshchenko shoots his time-lapses the old fashioned way: frame by frame. This causes a higher quality video and definitely pays off. But he does warn that you should have a bunch of hard drives available because you will be shooting RAW. For him, he uses a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40mm f/4 lens, and a tripod. However, the real magic happens in After Effects. To put it into perspective, five seconds of video takes almost five hours of editing to match and stabilize clips and attach transitions. All videographers can sympathize.
For an app, Tereshchenko uses The Photographers Ephemeris (TPE), which helps you track the suns or stars. Hyperlapse isn’t something that is necessarily easy and you have to be very concentrated on where the light is moving. It takes time to do it well.
I made this video because I wanted to show all capabilities of this technology and that you can have only DSLR camera, tripod, and laptop and be able to create something very beautiful.
What apps or gear do you use to shoot hyperlapse?
