If you’ve been toying around with time-lapse photography and want try the next logical evolution, or if you simply want a fun photography project for the weekend, this quick hyperlapse how-to from the fun folks over at DigitalRevTV has you covered. (Warning: Some strong language)
After explaining the basics and going over a few of the challenges you might run into on your first hyperlapse try, Kai wisely decides to enlist the help of talented hyperlapse photographer Patrick Cheung.
From that point on the video gets a good bit more informative, with Cheung explaining the math involved in shooting a hyperlapse scene and offering some useful tips (e.g. According to Cheung, it’s actually better to use a monopod when shooting hyperlapses).
Of course, a 7-minute video won’t get you making videos like this one, but it’s a great first step if you’re wanting to experiment with the genre.
So heck out the video at the top to see the quick how-to for yourself, and be sure to stick around until the end to see some great hyperlapse examples from Cheung’s portfolio.
