If you’ve been itching to try your hand at shooting a hyperlapse video, the short and sweet video tutorial above may be a nice place to start your journey. It was made by Cal Thomson, the same guy who created the popular time-lapse tutorial that we featured earlier this month.
A “hyperlapse” is a timelapse with camera movements. By changing the position of the camera slightly in between each exposure, tracking is introduced and the viewer can be taken across long distances in a very short amount of time.
“Whilst I’m definitely no expert, I thought I’d share some tips and techniques in this short tutorial to encourage others to shoot hyper lapse,” Thomson says.
For his hyperlapse project, he used a Canon 6D, Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, a Manfrotto 501 tripod, and an intervalometer. Each photo was shot in RAW and then post-processed in Adobe Lightroom 5 and stabilized in Adobe After Effects CC (using the Warp Stabilizer).
You can see some of Thomson’s resulting hyperlapse shots at the end of the video tutorial.
