Jaipur is one of the most popular and photogenic tourist attractions in the country India. Every year, a countless number of photographers and videographers work tirelessly to try and capture its beauty. But once in a while, a photo or video of Jaipur capable of inspiring the entire world hits the internet.
In 2016, such a video was published to Youtube by Ethereal. The video, titled “Crown of Jaipur | Hyperlapse,” is a three-minute hyperlapse of some of the city’s most iconic locations.
It has been more than one year since ‘Go Delhi Go | Hyperlapse’ and I felt like producing a second one from India. Just when I was thinking about which Indian city should I gun for, Jaipur – The Pink City, came into the picture. Well, that’s because last year I got to see a just a bit of this city, when I attended the wedding of my friends. So I read a bit about the city and tried to understand what makes it what it is today and it only made me take the journey sooner. I hope to take you into past with this film.
What is Hyperlapes?
Hyperlapse is an exposure technique in time-lapse photography, in which the position of the camera is being changed between each exposure in order to create a tracking shot in timelapse sequences. In contrast to a simple motion timelapse – dolly shots, which are realized with short camera sliders; in hyperlapse photography, the camera is being moved through very long distances.
After seeing this Hyperlapse video, we are sure you will visit Jaipur.
