Photography Bay reader Mayeul Akpovi just cranked out another solid timelapse video of Paris. As you may have seen in Part I and Part II, Akpovi produces an incredible sense of motion in his timelapse work.
He uses a variety of gear to accomplish these shots:
- Canon 5D Mark III
- Canon 5D Mark II
- Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
- Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Fisheye
- Samyang 14mm f/2.8
- Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD
- Filters: ND2 to ND400
Akpovi accomplishes those surreal camera movements not with a large dolly, jib or mechanized slider, but with a simple tripod and some camera shake reduction in post processing. You can get a glimpse of this technique in an earlier behind-the-scenes video below.
You can see more of Akpovi’s work here on his Vimeo account.
