Time-lapse videos can be absolutely mesmerising, and this one of a sunflower coming into bloom is no exception, showing an almost intimate glimpse of something we rarely see with our own eyes. Neil Bromhall created this incredible video in a darkened studio and took 10 days to film it.

Mushroom growth timelapse videos never fail to amaze me and mesmerize me. Netflix’s Fantastic Fungi is filled with them, and I honestly thought they were partially shot outside. However, you can’t shoot this kind of timelapses outdoors. In this video by WIRED, Fantastic Fungi director Louie Schwartzberg tells us more about it. He reveals the secrets behind his magical growth timelapse videos, telling you about how they’re filmed and why it’s done in a studio.
The 1984 Winter Olympics took place in Sarajevo, in former Yugoslavia (today Bosnia and Herzegovina). It was the first Winter Olympic Games held in a socialist state after many countries boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow.
Although the Olympic Village in Sarajevo is abandoned today, it inspires artists and urban explorers. One of them is Joerg Daiber of Little Big World. Using a drone and a tilt-shift effect, he shot a timelapse of the grandiose venue in an unexpected way – he turned it into a miniature.
The world of fungi is not only mysterious and magical but also essential for life on Earth. Fantastic Fungi is a movie that shows all this beauty and importance. Its trailer is just out, and it really got me interested. But more than that, it’s filled with jaw-dropping growth timelapse of fungi that make even the trailer itself pretty enjoyable to watch.
On 16 June current year, the ISS astronauts Thomas Pesquet and Shane Kimbrough went on a spacewalk. They were on a mission to install a new solar array for the ISS, and they were even caught on camera from Earth (kind of). But if you’d like to get a closer look at the recent spacewalk, ESA has announced two timelapse videos showing the two astronauts in action.
Aerial timelapses are usually pretty cool and who doesn’t love animals? So, it makes sense to combine the two. And that’s exactly what Israeli drone photographer, Lior Patel did in this timelapse as he spent several months following and filming a large herd of between 1,000 and 1,700 sheep, along with accompanying dogs and humans.
It’s a fascinating and hypnotic video, and very different from most of the others we see blasting across our screens these days – particularly from drones. Seeing the sheep move together as a single cohesive unit is mesmerising. It still amazes me that they all just stick together and follow each other without randomly dispersing in whichever directions they want.
Last week’s partial solar eclipse lasted for about 2.5 hours, leaving photographers with an opportunity to capture some stunning shots. Photographer Göran Strand (previously) managed to pack it into only ten seconds. It took patience, time, and a whole lot of photos to make it happen. 50,000 photos, to be exact. But he ended up with an incredibly smooth and detailed timelapse that you can see below.
Getting a decent photograph of the sun which shows the incredible level of normally invisible detail of its surface is extremely difficult. Shooting a whole mess of them over the course of 10 hours and turn them into a cohesive timelapse is downright impossible for most of us. But for astrophotographer Deddy Dayag, it’s a passion he’s been pursuing for a while now.
Deddy regularly posts his new work to YouTube and the results are just gorgeous. Deddy spoke with DIYP to tell us more about the gear he uses to shoot the timelapses and in particular his latest video, which offers a stunningly unique insight into the sun’s surface activity.
Whenever I see Andrew McCarthy’s name pop up on my Instagram feed, I know I’ll see and read something amazing. This time, this creative astrophotographer blew my mind with a timelapse of a massive active region of the Sun. It took Andrew solid six hours of observation and shooting this incredible sight, but judging from the end result, it was more than worth it.
It took over 50,000 photographs to create the stunning 8K timelapse video above, according to its creator, landscape photographer Michael Shainblum. In it, we see the amazingly diverse and magical landscape that New Zealand has to offer in incredible detail.
Creating timelapse can be difficult enough, especially these days when there are so many out there that you really need to go the extra mile to impress, but Michael’s done exactly that with this one.
