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.
After a report that Google Pixel phones were getting Night Sight timelapse, now it’s official. In Pixel 4 and later phones, you can now automatically capture a night timelapse while shooting astrophotography. This feature arrives with a few more updates, so let’s dive in and see what’s new.
Long term timelapses are a lot of fun to shoot, but they can come with a lot of challenges. What happens if your gear gets stolen or damaged? What if it simply moves and you lose your framing? Or stops shooting entirely? It’s a constant learning experience of challenges that we have to figure out as we face them.
But probably the biggest challenge is that of power. For Oklahoma farmer Derek Chisum, who wanted to shoot timelapse of his peanuts growing up out of the ground in his field, the solution is simple. Hook the camera – a GoPro in this case – up to a car battery. Derek spoke to DIYP about his setup.
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.
It’s incredible how much interesting photo and video content you can make from stuff you have around the house. This time, Jens of Another Perspective used a single raw egg to create a fantastic timelapse. “What’s so interesting about an egg?” you may wonder. Well, it crystalizes as it dries, creating incredible patterns Jens caught on camera.
Google Earth lets you explore our world in three dimensions. In its latest update, Google has added a whole new dimension to the tool – time. From now on, you can see time flying in any corner of the Earth and witness the change it went through between 1984 and 2020. In some parts of the world, this change is impressive. But in the others, it’s devastating.
