I have to admit I’m a bit of a sucker for a good time-lapse video of London. Time-lapse video is a impressive but relatively simple technique. Place the camera on a stable platform, take a series of photos seconds apart and when played back at normal speed, time is compressed.
This London hyperlapse video takes this a step further as between each image the camera is moved along a pre-determined path. With a bit of fancy editing to keep buildings in register the result is very impressive.
I’m not sure I have the patience needed to take on such a project so hats off to those that do.
This one from Expedia caught my eye as it combines time-lapse, hyperlapse and drone footage to highlight some of London’s most iconic landmarks (most of which we visit on our photo walks, nudge, nudge!).
See how many iconic London landmarks you can spot. I’ve listed them in the drop down box below the video. No cheating. Enjoy!
