Last year we shared the time-slice photography of Richard Silver, who combined multiple photos of the same scene, taken at different times of the day, into single composite images that span many hours.

Photographer Fong Qi Wei takes that concept to a new level with his project “Time is a Dimension.”

NBC’s Bullet Time Replay Rigs: How They Work and What You Can Expect

freeD1

A couple of days ago, we shared the news that NBC’s Sunday Night Football was going to show you pro football like you’ve never seen it before: in bullet time. Details were a bit thin, but it looked like a 24-camera bullet time rig would be installed in each end zone, providing Matrix-like replays that would do their best to blow your mind.

As it turns out, the technology is called ‘freeD’ and was developed by Replay Technologies. And Patrick Myles of Teledyne DALSA (the company providing the 4K cameras for the system) got in touch with us to share some of the juicy details, which we now get to pass along to you. Read more…

Sunday Night Football is about to get a lot more fun to watch. Not even two months after we shared the news that the folks over at NHK had put together a robotic bullet time rig that could shoot 360° slow-motion replays, NBC has announced its plan to bring matrix-style replays to the world of pro football.

How to Build a DIY ‘Bullet Time’ Rig Using Only a Ceiling Fan and a GoPro

Creating time-slices (better known as the bullet time effect) where you freeze a moment in time and move around your subject is an expensive thing. It’s expensive mainly because it requires that you have several cameras at your disposal.

Photographer Jeremiah Warren didn’t have multiple cameras, but he did have a ceiling fan, a two-by-four and a GoPro Hero3, so he built a makeshift “bullet time” DIY rig and made do. Read more…

This Robotic Camera System Can Capture Bullet Time Slow Motion Replays

The folks over at NHK’s (the Japan Broadcasting Corporation’s) Science & Technology Research Laboratory have developed a groundbreaking multi-viewpoint, motion-controlled camera rig that could very soon be changing the way we view sports, among many other potential applications.

The rig is a robotically controlled system that links one camera to eight sub-cameras, all of which are pointing at the same thing. Basically, it’s a bullet time rig that moves, enabling the people behind the lenses to take the technique of timeslicing to new heights. Read more…

Time-Slice Composite Photo Captures the Changing Air Quality in Beijing

Combination picture shows the air pollution levels of the sky over Tiananmen Square during the National People's Congress in Beijing

A neat way to capture the passage of time is to photograph one scene multiple times throughout a day, slice up the resulting photos, and then combine them into a single composite image showing all the different hours as slices. In the past we’ve shown examples of this technique done in cities and with sunsets.

Chinese photographer Wei Yao of Reuters used this same concept, but instead of shooting photos over a number of hours, his image spans days. Instead of focusing on the passage of time, his image highlights Beijing’s serious pollution problem.

7 Colorful Hours of a Sunset Captured in a Single Photograph

Turkey-based photography enthusiast Isil Karanfil created this beautiful image showing an entire sunset in a single photograph. Karanfil fixed her Nikon D60 in its view of the seascape, and then shot a single photograph every hour for seven hours between 3pm and 9pm as the day turned into night. She then took the resulting photographs, sliced them up, and combined them together using Photoshop for the image seen above, which she titles, “Sun Lapse”.
