This gorgeous timelapse film was created from footage captured over the course of 2 years around the San Francisco Bay area. Simon Christen spent many mornings on the Marin Headlands capturing scene by scene of what he calls “a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area.”
He shot these images with the Canon 7D and Canon 4oD in raw format with exposures generally occurring every 2-10 seconds. Exposure was set in manual mode. On the last shot with the fog engulfing the camera, both the he and camera got pretty well soaked due to all of the moisture from the dense fog.
He uses a sturdy Really Right Stuff tripods for keeping the shots steady and, when necessary, uses software stabilization in After Effects to smooth out some shots.

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:
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.

Vello ShutterBoss remotes for most Canon, Nikon and Pentax DSLRs are available for $34.50 right now (normally $52.50). These remotes serve as interval timers and remote shutter releases, which are essential for timelapse recording on Canon DSLRs. As a result, these are a cheaper alternative to Canon’s own $130 TC-80N3 remote.
