“The sound of your shutter clicking is annoying the people around you.”

Matthew was a lucky man to be in the right place at the right time to capture this – and even if some were annoyed, I think it is worth sharing.

World’s First Sunset Hyperlapse

Last week I was lucky enough to shoot the world’s first sunset hyperlapse sequence from an airplane, here’s how I did it.
Let me start off by saying that cinema-productions have been shooting similar looking footage for years, the difference here however is that I shot this footage using the hyperlapse technique that’s been making the rounds on the internet for the past two years or so.
A hyperlapse is a special photography technique where you take a series of photos with similar framing while physically moving inbetween every shot. After stabilizing the footage with special software, you (quite literally in this case) create a flight through time and space. Because you’re shooting at a slower framerate than the usual 24/25/30 frames per second, the rendered video will show the world in fastforward.
Another advantage: as I’m shooting stills (not video), I’m able to create Ultra High Definition video files, with resolutions greater than 5K.

Have you ever been lucky enough to shoot something amazing from an airplane? I actually got some cool shots of the St. Louis Arch from a plane once… they sell on shutterstock.com now!
