I’ve had a great time capturing timelapses for a few years now. I even got into the motion controlled motorized slider scene and added a pan tilt head after seeing Tom Lowe’s “Timescapes.” 

But recently I’ve discovered the are of “Hyperlapse.” It’s just like timelapse only you’re moving the camera much more drastically than a motion controlled timelapse. 

I’ve found that it works best when you center your focus point on the same spot between each move. It’s a little bit of trial and error as some motions paths don’t seem to work as well as others. 

Most of the time I’ll shoot on a tripod and then move the tripod about 3 steps between each shot, trying to keep a rhythm so that clouds, people, etc move fluidly when the hyperlapse is compiled. 

So far I’ve only used this method on buildings, but I plan to try it in a landscape setting somewhere near Idaho Falls soon.

My boss is currently in Vienna Austria and shot these hyperlapses on his iphone handheld! I just ran the image sequences threw After Effects and used the Warp Stabilizer tool to stabilize the footage.
