Three Drone (DJI Mavic Air) Timelapse Tips

Fall Adventure in New Jersey

Last weekend I drove to the Appalachian Trail to explore the fall colors of New Jersey.  I went to the Stairway to Heaven Trail, the Boardwalk Trail, and High Point State Park.  All spots were awesome.  My first one was the Stairway to Heaven Trail where I spotted a cool composition of a hillside landscape. … Continue reading Fall Adventure in New Jersey

Independence Hall – Hyperlapse

This Friday I went to Philadelphia for a short day trip.  We stopped near Independence Hall so I decided to take a timelapse...of course!  I was debating a long exposure timelapse with the crowds and cars but I thought this was a pretty standard shot.  I instead decided to do a hyperlapse from left to … Continue reading Independence Hall – Hyperlapse

Eastern State Penitentiary … Continue reading Day trip to Philadelphia!

Pittsburgh, PA – First Night Hyperlapse

Two nights ago I tried my first night hyperlapse.  I've done plenty of hyperlapses before but they have all been during the day.  My hesitation for a night hyperlapse was the use of a tripod (especially when I travel).  Usually I shoot hyperlapses hand-held during the day where my shutter speeds can be quick enough … Continue reading Pittsburgh, PA – First Night Hyperlapse

Washington Square Park – New York City Hyperlapse Case Study

  Another spot that I decided to visit this past Friday was Washington Square Park in New York.  I had my tilt-shift lens but quickly realized once I got there that no vantage point existed to leverage this lens.  I decided to try out a hyperlapse around the fountain.  I noticed that blocks on the … Continue reading Washington Square Park – New York City Hyperlapse Case Study
