Soul-Stirring Infrared Time-Lapse Captures a Haunting Portrait of an Endangered Hawaiian Tree

The video above by photographer Gary Yost is remarkable for two reasons. The first is that it was shot in true infrared, with a camera that had a 650 nanometer conversion applied. The second, is that the haunting, stirring quality of the time-lapse serves a greater purpose than simply offering a novel look at the Hawaiian landscape.

The subjects of the video are skeletons of the endangered Māmane trees of Hawaii. “A powerful metaphor,” Yost says, “for how outsiders have crushed the native Hawaiian ecology.” Read more…

‘Time-Lapse’ Condenses 1 Hour of Air Strikes into 1 Minute, Shows Gaza Neighborhood Leveled

The video above isn’t a time-lapse per-se, but it is being reported as such because it allegedly condense a full hour of Israeli Army air strikes on a Gaza Neighborhood down to just one minute of footage. In that minute, you see an entire neighborhood vanish into explosions and massive clouds of dust that clear to reveal only piles of rubble. Read more…

Awesome Time-Lapse Car Commercial Takes You on a Journey Through Tasmania

Australian car company Holden recently made a wise choice: they gave photographer Nathan Kaso and director Timothy Melville a couple of cars and set them loose on a 1,200-mile trek around Tasmania. What resulted was the fantastic time-lapse above. Read more…

This is What Happens When You Close the Drapes on Your At-Home Camera Obscura

Photographer Daniel Tellman is an experimenter, and his ideas often lead to beautiful results. After turning his daughter’s room into a giant camera obscura, he decided to have some fun by closing the drapes and turning them into a makeshift projector screen.

He then set up a camera in front of the drapes to capture images of the world outside passing by over the course of a day. The time-lapse video above is a gorgeous compilation of those images.

Hyperlapse Puts You On the Dashboard of a 747 for a Trans-Pacific Trip from Tokyo to San Francisco

We’ve seen spectacular city tour hyperlapses, and creative hyperlapses created using Google Street View images, but until today, we had never seen a trans-Pacific hyperlapse that put us right in the driver’s seat (pilot’s seat?) of a Boeing 747. Read more…

Oddly Captivating Time-Lapse of Ice Cream Melting Isn’t Nearly as Boring as You Think

You know the saying “that’s about as exciting as watching water boil?” Well, this time-lapse is about as exciting as watching ice cream melt… actually, it is exactly as exciting as watching ice cream melt — but that’s not nearly as banal as you might think it is. Read more…

Sanding Down Objects One Millimeter at a Time Makes for Mesmerizing Stop-Motion

In Verschleif, the stop-motion video you see above, artist Laurin Döpfner decided to take a number of seemingly everyday objects and bring them to life in a strange, unique and entrancing way.

Using an industrial sanding machine (likely a belt-sander of sorts), Döpfner broke down a number of objects a single layer at a time, producing the surreal stop-motion video above in the process. Read more…

This ‘Flow-Motion’ Hyperlapse of Barcelona Won’t ‘Blow Your Mind’… But It’ll Get Close

We’re trying, we really are trying to stay away from the word-inflation, click-bait terms like ‘jaw-dropping.’ But dang it if this hyperlapse by photographer Rob Whitworth didn’t actually have us staring at the screen wide-eyed and slack-jawed. Read more…

Camera & Sky Move as One in This Twisted Time-Lapse

It’s safe to say we’ve all seen our fair share of night-sky time-lapses. Most often, they tend to show off grandiose views of mother nature as the stars (seemingly) rotate in the background. But the truth of the matter is, we’re the ones rotating, not the stars.

So what would happen if a night-sky time-lapse photographer used the stars – or more precisely a star – as a fixed axis, instead of Earth? Well, you would end up with a trippy time-lapse like the one you see above. Read more…

Timelapse Captures Triple Lightning Strike on Three of Chicago’s Tallest Buildings

Some contend that there are no fireworks shows that can best mother nature’s display during an intense thunderstorm, and the video above by Chicago-based videographer Craig Shimala goes a long way in confirming their belief. Read more…
