Aerial Photography Timelapse

A few weeks ago I took an awesome flight with the folks from Sea To Sky Air in Squamish, BC.  The mission was to photography two prominent local mountains: Black Tusk in Whistler, and Sky Pilot in Squamish.

I used a GoPro Hero 4 Black strapped to the wing of the plane to record a timelapse of the flight, and then I edited a selection of the final processed images into the timelapse at the relevant points in the video.  I’m calling it a slidelapse (slideshow+timelapse). The whole thing was edited together in Final Cut Pro X, and uploaded in 4k for your view pleasure, and hopefully inspiration!

I’ve also posted a comprehensive tutorial on aerial photography over at Shutter Muse.
