CDMX – Mexico City Time-Lapse and hyper-lapse, by Arne Wossink

Experience that modern bustle of Mexico City in this short series of scenes captured by photographer from The Netherlands, Arne Wossink.

I had the opportunity to spend some time in Mexico City and I used most of my free hours to shoot timelapses and hyperlapses. This little portrait is the result. Enjoy it and feel free to comment and share!

I had to shoot a lot of sequences as handheld hyperlapses (even where I had not necessarily planned a hyperlapse), as the police told me on several occasions that I could not use a tripod.

Shooting HL handheld was a new experience, as I usually shoot with a tripod. Handheld worked actually pretty well for the forward moving hyperlapses, but for side-ways movement I will definitely continue to use a tripod, as the footage is much steadier and easier to stabilize.

Otherwise this project was great: a city like Mexico City provides photography opportunities that I do not find at home, and for me it was an eye-opener to see how much footage you can collect in just a few days, even in a city where I’ve never been before.
