Countless hours of editing..
A city that never sleeps..
and an ameteur photographer hooked on timelapse..
Of course the result had to be a timelapse/hyperlapse video from my trip to New York :)
All hyperlapses in this video was shot handheld and manually counting between every exposure. Later stabilized in editing.
The hyperlapse of Brooklyn Bridge was the most challenging of them as i went like 2 steps forward, count to 3, shoot, 2 steps forward, count to 3, shoot for around 200 exposures. I was perhaps not the most popular guy on the bridge that day as I tried my best to stay on the line to avoid wiggeling in the hyperlapse. Especially the bikers disliked my activities on the narrow bridge leaving them in a more than tight spot in some situations.
For the panning scenes I used Panolapse ( http://www.panolapse360.com ) An amazing tool to create panos and zooming in footage. It creates a much more realistic image for panning moves than for instance animated pans using crop in Premiere as it simulates rotational panning with perspectiv correction in a brilliant way. I am thorougly impressed with its performance. I have still to get to know the many other features besides panning/zooming so this is certainly a tool I will enjoy to check out more on my next projects.
Check it out at their website. They have a 20% off on licenses just now also.
On my week long journey through New York I met tons of nice and interesting people. Thank you all for contributing to making my trip a huge success and a memory for life. I enjoyed every conversation I had while waiting for my camera sequence to end :)
