How to shoot a hyperlapse (the easy way!)


This tutorial teaches you how to shoot a hyperlapse the easy way. I use a DSLR to shoot full-resolution photos for each frame. I generally don’t use a tripod or intervalometer (time lapse controller). Instead, I shoot hand-held and trigger each frame manually. All the examples you see in this video were shot handheld. That makes it a lot faster and easier to shoot them, and it allows you to shoot in locations that don’t allow tripods or are too crowded for tripod use.

To stabilize the example hyperlapse I shot during this tutorial (you can see a time lapse of me shooting it at 7:45) I just ran AE warp stabilizer with the default settings. You can see the result at 8:38.
