FStoppers' Chelsey Rogers reports about Vadim Tereshchenko's work in hyperlapse. "The L.A.-based photographer has been exclusively shooting hyperlapse for the past two years, which is how long it took him to shoot this video. Tereshchenko originally started shooting hyperlapse videos as a hobby, and says he failed the first couple of times. Then it clicked. Now he shoots a lot of his hyperlapse videos for companies such as VH1, AMC, and L.A. LIVE. I guess practice really does make perfect.

Unlike Instagram or other apps' hyperlapse, Tereshchenko shoots his time-lapses the good old fashioned way: frame by frame. Shooting this way allows the quality of the images to be much higher, and as you can see from the video it pays off. But he warns to be sure to have a couple hard drives for all that space you will use shooting raw images. He uses a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40mm f/4 lens, and tripod, but the magic happens in After Effects."
