Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 30 frames per second. The result is an apparent 30-times speed increase. Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of high speed photography or slow motion.
A while ago I told you a bit about one of the most anticipated international scientific joint effort in recent history – the Square Kilometer Array. When ready, the SKA will cover one square kilometer of South African or Australian soil, hence the name, with thousands of radio dishes that combine and work as one, [...]
We’ve got quite a thing for time-lapse videos, and this one is definitely one of the best we’ve come across so far. This is no fancy computer simulation or anything like this, it’s just how looking through the window looks like on the ISS. The Stars as Viewed from the International Space Station. from AJRCLIPS [...]
We’ve posted quite a few time lapse videos, but this one definitely takes the biscuit for me. Earth | Time Lapse View from Space, Fly Over | NASA, ISS from Michael König on Vimeo. The crew onboard the International Space Station during Expedition 29 has captured new footage of our planet, providing a view we [...]
I’ve recently fallen in love with time lapse videos of the sky, and posted a few lovely ones. We’re setting the bar even higher now, with this brilliant work from photographer Terje Sorgjerd. What happens here is truly magical: a Saharan windstorm invades the sky and throws it into chaos, while the Milky Way is [...]
