Mesmerizing Time-Lapse of Burning Man Shows 5 Weeks in 5 Minutes

Earlier this year, UT Austin grad student Matthew Goodman set up a Canon DSLR on Razorback mountain, which overlooks the desert where Burning Man was held. Over the next two months, the camera snapped a photograph every 10 minutes, resulting in roughly 8,000 12-megapixel photographs. Goodman then used the images to create this impressive time-lapse video showing 5 weeks of Burning Man in just 5 minutes. Every second shows 3 hours, so a full day passes every 8 seconds.

If you’re interested in learning more about how it was done (including how they managed to keep the camera powered), Goodman has an in-depth writeup on his blog.

Beautiful Compilation of Timelapse Clips by Mike Flores

This is a stunning montage of timelapse clips created by Mike Flores during the past year. Many of the scenes are layered beautifully, with the desert in the foreground, clouds whizzing across the sky, and the universe spinning brightly in the background.

Shots in which the camera moves were created using two custom track and dolly systems that Flores created using off-the-shelf parts. The photographs were made with a Canon 5D Mark II with three lenses: the 16-35mm f2.8 II, 14mm f2.8 II, and 24mm f1.4 II. The music in the background is from the movie Inception.
