Nobody can throw a spectacular light show like nature can. Timelapse photographer Ron Risman is well aware of this, so he chased a storm to create a magnificent timelapse of thunderstorm raging over a field in Kansas. He shot it in 4K and combined it with epic music (reminds me of music from Warcraft). As a result, he got spectacular thunderstorms striking at the beat of the song. It’s amazing for both watching and listening. Take your earphones, play the video, and enjoy!

The name Mike Olbinski has become fairly synonymous with with amazing weather timelapse films. And he’s kicked 2017 off to an amazing start with Pulse, a 4K black & white timelapses showing some absolutely incredible storms and tornadoes.
We’re so used to seeing these things full of vibrant colour, that black & white often looks quite dull by comparison. Pulse, however, is beautifully processed, adding nothing but drama and a heightened sense of nature’s overwhelming power.

Thunderstorms are awe-inspiring, whether you watch them live, in photos or in videos. But videographer and photographer Dustin Farrell has made a slow-motion video that makes thunderstorm more enchanting than ever.
Dustin chased storms during the summer of 2017 and collected his best shots in a short film titled Transient. It shows lightning in slow motion and turns a sudden flash of light into a hypnotizing electrical drawing in the sky. If you enjoy watching the lightning, you’ll enjoy it even more in slow motion.
Spekular is spectacular! Hmmm – a little over the top? Not really. I recently had the opportunity to put this new LED lighting system from Spiffy Gear to the test. Spiffy Gear are the folks that brought us the Light Blaster (buy link).
Spekular is a modular lighting system that can take on all kinds of shapes depending on your needs and this can save you money and the time needed to pack and set-up light modifiers especially when you are working on location. Spekular comes as a kit of 4 LED sections. Each section is built with aluminum and ABS plastic. The sections can be configured using the included hinged connectors or with the accessory extension kit.
Jeffrey Tsang is a maritime YouTube vlogger, sailor, and photographer. He sails on a container ship that travels across the globe, and in his latest timelapse he shows you a wonderful journey across the sea. He put 30 days of sailing into only 10 minutes. And these are probably the most awe-inspiring 10 minutes on YouTube. His timelapse shows plenty of beautiful sights, from thunderstorms on the open sea, to moonlit night skies.
He took photos over the course of 30 days and ended up with about 80,000 images to combine into a timelapse movie. His journey started from the Red Sea and ended in Hong Kong.
Shooting storms is an incredible experience, and many of us are attracted to it. Daniel Modøl from Norway was filming a heavy thunderstorm from his deck – when suddenly a lightning struck incredibly near him. It destroyed a part of his backyard and deck, missing the man for only a couple of meters.
You may know Mike Olbinski by his stunning work in creating storm timelapse. He recently presented his latest work, appropriately titled Pursuit. This time, nature wasn’t on his side. It was difficult to catch the storms and shoot them for the film, despite all the effort. So he traveled 28,000 miles across the USA, pursuing the most spectacular and awe-inspiring storms, and not giving up. And he did it – he created another fantastic timelapse video that shows the overwhelming power of nature.
Photographing the Milky Way is something many aspiring night sky photographers only dream of. As is capturing brilliant storms full of bright lightning flashes. Both the Milky Way and night time storms have such a visual allure, that keeps photographers coming back for more.
In this timelapse short film, titled The Perfect Storm, Martien Janssen managed to capture both. At the same time. It’s a perfect storm not only in name, but in meaning, too. To capture either of them well, on their own, is impressive. To get the two together really is amazing. Shot over a period of 14 months chasing storms in the Philippines, the final result is just beautiful.
