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.

Terrific work and amazing results. The music is terrible, really need pro help here!
Anyone know how many exposures he made for the Paris piece? I suspect a shutter rebuild in his very near future.
