The Space Station

0

You really do want to spend the next 18 minutes watching this video, you will thank me. I got two things out this tour. 1). There are flashlights everywhere.  I guess it makes some sense, it still seems excessive. 2). It’s more cluttered than a teenager’s bedroom.  And I’m sure like every teenager, they moved … Continued

European Time-Lapse

0

Paul Richardson, a photographer from Manchester, UK took this beautifully edited series of time-lapses around Europe.  The music really adds to the experience.  I’ve seen (and made) time-lapses before, and adding music to them makes all the difference.  Adding motion to the time-lapse is another great thing.  I’m just getting started with that, it’s quite a … Continued

Colorful Coral: Time-Lapse

0

25,000 individual images shot over a year make up this beautiful time-lapse of coral moving in a way that humans couldn’t see normally.  Part of this project is to bring to light the plight that the Great Barrier Reef is undergoing due to changing climates and industrialization of the world. It’s pretty spectacular solely because … Continued

Astro Core

Having gotten more into the art of time-lapse, I’ve discovered that adding motion to them makes them that much better.  However, manually panning and tilting a tripod head is difficult and often gives poor results.  There are tons of dedicated motion controls out there.  However, I never really thought about how they are actually supposed … Continued

Hot Wheels POV

Anyone who grew up with Hot Wheels and/or Matchbox Cars knows the insane tracks that would be put together for them.  I know I made crazy things to run the cars around.  With the advent of the internet, and the ability to bulk order track, people make giant fun things for their kids.  What’s even … Continued

JPEG -> Animated GIF

0

Using the magic of technology, the folks over at Plotagraph Pro has come up with a way to turn basic flat JPEG images into animated GIFs.  Sort of like a cinemagraph, instead of needing to take a video though, or use layers in Photoshop, the software will use algorithms to animate the existing data in … Continued

National Park Daguerrotypes

0

Binh Danh uses the oldest photographic technique from the early 1800s, Daguerreotype.  It’s an involved technique that uses a sheet of copper plated with silver and buffed to a mirror finish.  Then, treated with some fumes, the plate becomes light sensitive.  After exposing something on the plate, and here comes the good part, you use mercury … Continued

How Car Chases are Filmed

I love Jason Bourne, the books, and the films.  I also love Matt Damon.  Did you ever question how those car chases are filmed?  Well, the above video will show part of that.  It will also show you some other parts of behind the scenes filming of the upcoming Jason Bourne film.  It’s a pretty … Continued

1,000,000 mile Year long Earth Timelapse

0

Last year NASA launched it’s Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite with an EPIC camera on board.  It’s stayed on the Lagrange 1 point, 1,000,000 miles from the earth towards the sun.  Lagrange points are interesting aspects of space, I’ll let you learn about it on your own time.  Taking a photo every 2 hours for … Continued

Shattered Glass

0

This is a pretty good way to spend 10 minutes of your life.  Granted, you only really will care about parts of it.  These guys are pretty fun to watch.  I like how they showed it at normal speed, then slowly increased the frame rate.  Granted, it’s a colossal waste of perfectly good mixing jars, but … Continued
