In this short timelapse video I photographed many iconic locations in Los Angeles. LA has been filmed countless times, but I wanted to capture the city in a unique way. To do that, I used a technique called hyperlapse, which is a series of still photographs taken over a desired distance at a set interval. Every frame of this video is a still photograph.
After exploring the city, I’ve learned to appreciate Los Angeles in a way which I didn’t before. I love the views, the architecture, the history and the diversity. Yes, the traffic is horrible, and parking is a nightmare, but it’s a beautiful place, and it’s my home and I’m proud to say that I live in the City of Angels!
