Best skies of 2021 timelapse film


My latest timelapse film shows you the very best and most beautiful skies I recorded in 2021.

Keep reading to find out more about how I shot and edited these timelapse sequences.

As mentioned in a previous blog post, I guesstimated that I recorded around half a million timelapse photos in 2021.

This number is so high because we moved flats twice, which saw me capturing timelapse shots at all times of day (and night).

The timelapses were mostly colour graded in Lightroom Classic using my Timelapse Preset collection and further edited using LRTimelapse 5, and since a few weeks back the beta versions of LRTimelapse 6.

You can read more about the new LRTimelapse here.

A lot of the footage was rendered using Adobe After Effects (which now finally has multi-frame rendering), and finally compiled in Final Cut Pro X as that seems to be the only software to run without hiccups on my Macbook Pro.

Yes, I do indeed edit everything on my MacBook Pro, which was turned into a great meme recently by CleverDarkElve.

If you're a beginner then rendering 8K footage is a bit of a stretch, but we all have to start somewhere. Which is why I made this guide to the basics of timelapse photography. If you're a beginner, you'll love this little free e-book!

The majority of the timelapse sequences in this compilation were shot on mirrorless cameras, namely the Lumix S5, Lumix S1 and the Canon EOS R6. You can read more about their timelapse performance by clicking the names.

Up next on the channel are a few more tutorial videos, after which I'll be premiering a new showreel of all of my best timelapse and hyperlapse shots around London. It will serve as a sort of digital business card for potential clients and brands I'd like to work with.
