Usually timelapse videos are static shot of landscapes and clouds. Edward Aites takes the camera and makes time. Moving his camera approximately one foot in between shots creating the dynamic effect of shots that travel all over the place. His recent project, Seattle In Motion, is both beautiful and technically brilliant.

This video was created from around 3600 individual photos shot in the spring, summer, and fall of 2012.

“After several years and hundreds of sequences of traditional time lapse, I was looking for a way to challenge myself and grow. I started learning to capture in the motion time lapse (hyperlapse) technique, where I move the camera slightly –usually around 12 inches (~30 cm) — for hundreds of times (between every interval). This creates an artificial parallax, and it was exciting to explore this new way of thinking, seeing, moving, and capturing.”
