Captivating Microscopic Time-Lapse Video Captures the Formation of Snowflakes

This is just plain beautiful, no matter which way you slice it. Using the magic of time-lapse photography and microscopy, Vyacheslav Ivanov captured the formation of those ice crystals we call snowflakes that caused so much grief in the northeastern US over the past several weeks. Read more…

Creative Project Combines Time-Lapse and Stop-Motion to Capture a US Road Trip

PetaPixel readers should already be familiar with Eric Paré‘s work. Often a combination of multiple photographic disciplines, his videos offer, if not something unique, then something at the very least different from the multitude of time-lapse, stop-motion and light painting work out there.

His newest project, called WindScale, is a combination of time-lapse and stop-motion that he and a friend created on their way from Montréal to Burning Man in Nevada last year. Read more…

Time-Lapse Captures Astonishingly Bright Aurora Borealis Over Sweden

In Sweden’s Abisko National Park, 2014 has been something of a God-send for time-lapse photographers. In the first 32 nights of the year, the so-called ‘polar spirits’ have come out to dance 29 times! But even that couldn’t have prepared photographer Chad Blakley for the spectacular light show he captured on February 1st. Read more…

Fantastic Optical Zoom Time-Lapse Takes Us on a Journey to the Orion Nebula

When physics professor and amateur photographer Isidro Villo says he’s taking you on a time-lapse journey to the Orion Nebula, he means it quite literally. He doesn’t just track Orion across the sky or create yet another Milky Way time-lapse, he literally zooms from ground level all the way in until M42 takes up the entire frame. Read more…

Dramatic Wyoming Weather & Landscape Time-Lapse Complete with Meteor Shower

I don’t think we’ve referred to a time-lapse as “dramatic” before, but when it comes to photographer Nicolaus Wegner‘s most recent time-lapse creation, no other word fits quite as well.

Captured over 14 months in the Wyoming wilderness, beautiful motion landscape sequences are juxtaposed masterfully with weather that he calls ‘terrorific’ — terrifying, horrific and terrific all rolled into one — in Wegner’s Wyoming Wildscapes II. Read more…

Artist Creates Mesmerizing Time-Lapse-like Videos that Trace the Flight Paths of Birds

Artist and professor at the Rhode Island School of Design, Dennis Hlynsky, is interested in studying the way small-brained animals flock in groups. Using a special editing technique, he can visualize the paths of each individual in the flock, and though he’s recorded everything from ants to fish to flies, the most fascinating examples of this technique in action involve flocks of birds.

1.5-Year Spinning Selfie Time-Lapse Makes Us Wish Our Lives Were More Exciting

We’ve seen some really creative time-lapse videos that take stock of a year or more in someone’s life. They range from one second of footage every day day for a year videos — an idea that got so popular it became somewhat cliché (though it’s still something you should try) — to a lip sync video that took three years to make.

The video above shows yet another creative way to make a ‘highlight reel’ of your life. Put together by a student using a GoPro Hero 2 and 3 (and dedicated to “all students who are bored”) it spins you through one and a half years of his seemingly very exciting life as he travels to 20 different cities all around Europe.

Rolex Retouching Timelapse Demonstrates Astonishing Skill and Attention to Detail

Okay, we know you’ve asked for less time-lapses and we’re doing our best to kick the habit, but this one couldn’t be helped, and we’re pretty sure you’ll forgive us. It’s not your standard stunning landscape time-lapse, this one shows the remarkable attention to detail and skill that goes into taking a great photograph of a Rolex watch, and making it phenomenal.

Selfie Time-Lapse: 1,700 Miles Hiked, 90lbs Lost, Epic Beard Grown

Self-portrait time-lapses are few and far between, because the patience required to create one of note is immense. Most of them are picture-per-day time-lapses that require the subject to maintain their dedication to the project for months on end, and the subject him or herself has to go through some amazing change or do something really cool –like lip synch a Queen song… for example — in the meantime.

Times Square Time-Lapse Captures the Madness that is New Year’s Eve in NYC

Thanks to CES, this week has been filled to bursting with new gear announcements that are either exacerbating your Gear Acquisition Syndrome (G.A.S.) or simply exhausting you. After all, how many “world’s first [this]” and “world’s lightest [that]” can you take before it all starts to blend together?

So today, although we have more cool gadgets and gizmos from CES 2014 to share with you, we thought we’d start the day (well, in the US it’s the start of the day…) by reliving one of the biggest parties of the New Year in time-lapse. Read more…
