There’s not much information to go along with this timelapse from the LA Times. If there’s more information on the LA Times website, I can’t see it, because apparently, they haven’t figured out how to add a disclaimer and an “I Accept” button for EU residents yet. But I couldn’t stop watching this video once I hit play.
Timelapse videos can be amazing, as well as photos and footage of space. In this video, Adrien Mauduit brings timelapse and space together and takes you to the core of the Milky Way galaxy. It’s an awe-inspiring footage that will make you realize how vast our galaxy is. So sit back, watch closely and enjoy.
Travel photography used to be one of the big earners in photography. These days, with as many people have a phone or camera in their pocket, half decent stock images of far-flung corners of the world are all over the place. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways you can stand out when it comes to documenting travel.
We’ve seen some great timelapses from folks such as Kirill Neiezhmakov who take us on wild rides through various cities around the world. But this one from Mwita Chaca of Mwendo just has a little something special about it.
I recently received my shiny new ASUS ZenFone 5, which just went on pre-order in the UK today. As an ASUS Brand Ambassador, I can’t exactly review this phone without it being perceived as a little biased (even if I’m being completely objective), so I’m not posting a review. But what I can do is show you how I use it to help me with my photography and the apps I use to do that.
These apps aren’t specific to the ASUS ZenFone 5. They should be available to users of just about any modern Android device. And some are even available for that other mobile platform. To illustrate the features of some of the apps, I went out over the weekend to shoot a video of them in use. If you want to miss my unboxing and get straight to the apps, then skip ahead to about 4:10.
MIOPS has seen some measure of success with its rather popular MIOPS Mobile camera trigger. Well, now they’re getting into motion control with the launch of the new Capsule360. It’s a modular motion control system that offers up to 3 axes of movement. Paired with your Android or iOS device, it also offers real-time facial and object tracking.
As with some of the previous MIOPS projects, the Capsule360 is being funded through Kickstarter. Units start at only $179 for the early bird single pack unit up to $879 for the full “premium pack” (also early bird price) which includes 3 Capsule360 units, L bracket, slider, dolly, turntable kit and a mobile dongle.
I’m once again truly humbled to see that my new short: Everest A Time Lapse Film – II is captivating audiences around the world. As always, my goal is to bring to life the majestic beauty of the Himalayas and to inspire others to dream big, discover their passions and explore this beautiful planet we inhabit. Everest and the people of Nepal have given so much to me and this is a very small way of giving something back.
The day-to-night transition has been the holy grail for timelapse photographers since timelapse first became a thing. What makes it difficult is rather obvious. The exposure is constantly changing as time passes. But dealing with that change in exposure over the course of an hour or two is not so straightforward.
But it’s not impossible to achieve, and there are various ways to do it, as David Bergman discusses in this video. Each of the methods has their own advantages and disadvantages, and which technique you’ll use will depend on your own judgement. But this will give you a great starting point to make your own.
If you’re into storm chasing and fantastic timelapse videos, then you’ve probably heard of Mike Olbinski. He has recently published his latest video, and just like before: it’s mind-blowing. You can see a tornado forming right before your eyes, and Mike managed to capture its entire lifecycle that will leave you in awe.
