Shooting a Professional Timelapse on a Smartphone

Hi! My name is Patrick Poh, I’m from Singapore, and I have been playing with timelapse photography for a few years. I recently completed the above timelapse video using a 3-year old phone (Sony XZ Premium) and a phone gimbal (Zhiyun Smooth Q), and I want to share about how it was done.

Drone Photos of Singapore Shot at 1,640 Feet

Singapore-based professional photographer Klaus Tan (AKA CHUTTERSNAP) recently flew his drone to its maximum altitude limit of 500 meters (~1,640 feet) above his city to capture the design and beauty of the island city-state.

Shooting the Stars in Light-Polluted Singapore with the Huawei P30 Pro

The moment I had been waiting for finally arrived exactly 49 days after I got my Huawei P30 Pro. This is one of my final tests for the phone after shooting the Milky Way handheld and a meter. So what’s the big deal about this test? Because photographing the Milky Way in Singapore with a DSLR was deemed impossible by many astrophotography veterans here just 5 years ago.

This Must-See Timelapse Took Three Years and One Million Photos to Make

The Lion City II – Majulah is a photographic love letter to Singapore; actually, love novel might be more appropriate. A time-lapse overflowing with creative camera work brought together with brilliant editing, it's not an understatement to say photographer Keith Loutit just raised the timelapse bar.

How I Photograph the Milky Way in the Light-Polluted Skies of Singapore

When it comes to photographing the elusive Milky Way in one of the most light-polluted major cities like Singapore, timing is critical. Most of the faint details will be washed out by the extreme light pollution and if we were to shoot the Milky Way under unfavorable atmospheric conditions, our attempt would be futile.

Unfortunately, most of the tutorials online only work in locations that are at least 2 stops darker than most of the dark locations in Singapore and so, we need to do more in post-processing to unveil the elusive Milky Way and more complex workflow is required if we’re shooting at much brighter locations.

Must-See Tilt-Shift Time-Lapse Shows Off an Incredibly Creative Way to Use the Effect

We don't typically share two time-lapses in the same day, since most people see that genre as over-saturated as it is, but today we have good reason to. The first is a landscape time-lapse so gorgeous National Geographic took notice, and this one, well this one may completely change the way you look at tilt-shift where time-lapse is concerned.
