A Timelapse Video of Dubai that Will Give You an Eyegasm


Don’t worry — eyegasms are more of a brain thing that a discharging thing.  I mean, just so you know.

Late Night Awesome, Pigment Porn Edition – SMEAR THE SKY

We’re about to see something awesome together – these are the paintings of Matt Malloy, and what Matt does that makes his work so absolutely freaking captivating is that he takes a couple hundred time lapsed photos and stacks them in order to create some stunning visuals.

If that was a run-on sentence, it was totally worth it.  Check this out, because if pigment had pigment porn among its fellow pigments and hues, this would be some crazy hardcore stuff.


From Matt’s My Modern Shop portfolio, more directly the Blazing Sunset page:

Matt Molloy is a 28-year-old photographer with a diploma in graphic design. The three things he loves the most are art, music and travel. “When I got my first camera, photography was a simple way to document the highlights of my life, but that quickly evolved into an everyday hobby. Discovering new methods and techniques along the way kept it exciting, but the one that really stuck is timelapse photography. It’s amazing to have the ability to see a different perspective of time, how things change and evolve. Just recently, I discovered a technique that allows me to express timelapse and movement in a still frame, merging multiple photos into one image. Part of the fun is that you never know what your going to get until it’s processed.”

HUGE thanks to Matt AND My Modern Met for this, these photos have completely changed my day.  I hope they change yours!

Rrrrrrrroll, with Eight “R’s”

Call me crazy, but I adore art like this below.  Tumblr users Rrrrrrrroll have created a series of GIFs that feature a woman spinning around in a series of environments.  There’s really not much to say about this work, you have to just see it.  Even the creators were quoted as saying “We don’t really have any specific reasons for starting “rrrrrrrroll,” but we were all thinking how cool it would be if we could produce something while just hanging out.”

Fair enough.  Good enough for me.  Check these out below, these are just some of my favorites.  Lots more to see on the Rrrrrrrroll Tumblr page, so check them out!

Taipei on High: Time Lapse Video from the Top of Taipei 101

Oh, what a beautiful video.  I love seeing time altered in video in pretty much any form.  It fascinates me, like completely and totally.

A Storm Coming – A 22 Minute Storm Approach in 80 Seconds

I love deconstruction and hyper-construction – taking something like a video shot at a certain frame rate and speeding it up to a thousand times its intended watching speed, or slowing it down so much as to examine its individual frame images.  I *love* it.  It probably goes right along with my need to take things apart and see how they work on a component level.

Here’s a video I just finished – it’s a storm coming across the horizon in Oklahoma City.  It was initially a 22 minute video that I sped up to just under 80 seconds.  I love how the light in the video slowly diminishes in the sky in color, and then in intensity as the storm diffuses the light with particles of water when humidity increases.

The music used to have lyrics, but they’re meaningless now, so I decided to record the score without them.

Check out the video – very cool!

5 Hours of Light into 90 Seconds: Oklahoma City

I got bored and made a video of downtown Oklahoma City, from 5pm to 10pm.  I took all of this video and condensed it down into 90 seconds – it’s cool to watch the city flick itself awake as the sun goes down.

Enjoy the video!

Editor’s note:
I like my Flip HD for most things video, but when it comes to really saturated light or low level light, it’s disappointing!  I need to save up for one of those little pro-sumer 3-chip digital video cameras.  Anyone got a suggestion on a model and make I should check out?

I Am A Tree – A Time-Lapse Love Story

Happy Monday, everybody!

I was playing around with my Flip HD this weekend, and I realized that I was able to capture this whole tree shadow’s movement from one side of the window to the other.  The entire video was about two hours, but I sped it up to fit inside a minute and a half.  I hope you enjoy it!

Coachella, Time-Lapse Style

I’m not sure how this slipped past me – but JimOnLight reader Jim Galvin (jimeg on Twitter) sent this great video he found on the Coachella festival this year back in April.  The film is a time lapse film, captures some interesting light, and is directed by Ray Klein.

Enjoy!  Thanks, Jim!

Niagra Falls in Time Lapse Style

I ran across a really cool time lapse video by Matthew Wartman on Vimeo – he took a compilation of shots from three nights at Niagra Falls and made a video.  Check it out!  It always surprises me that the falls are lit so plainly.  I guess that’s just the lighting designer in me.

The music is Mychael Danna & DeVotchKa’s The Winner Is.

Tokyo, Time Lapse-Style

Check out this excellent time lapse video of Tokyo – I love the way that the video progresses from day to night. It’s almost hypnotic!
