Hyperlapse Tutorial: Creating Your Own Moving Timelapse, from Start to Finish

Hyperlapse photography is an increasingly popular technique in which standard timelapse imagery is brought to life with camera movement. Rather than move the camera with a slider or with a crane, hyperlapse shots move the camera across very long distances.

19-year-old photographer Morten Rustad wanted to pass on some of the things he has learned about creating hyperlapses, so he created the helpful 9-minute-long video tutorial above. It’s a great primer for anyone looking to get started with this type of photography.

For some additional inspiration on what you can do with hyperlapse imagery, here are some eye-popping tours of famous world cities that contain hyperlapse shots:
