Time Lapse Wizardry

I've recently developed an interest in photography and while reviewing some of my favorite sites I came across the following videos. It's incredible that this is all possible with little more than an idea, some relatively inexpensive kit and an investment of time.

I really enjoyed them in fullscreen and hope you do too.

The talented Mike Flores used 2 custom track and dolly systems that he engineered himself to craft this gorgeous time-lapse montage showreel using a Canon 5DII. Very nicely done.

Shot by Sam Javanrouh with a Canon 5D Mark II, this 347 frame video of a Toronto lightning storm shows that it can strike twice–multiple times for the CN Tower in the middle.

Time lapse video of night sky as it passes over the 2009 Texas Star Party in Fort Davis, Texas. The galactic core of Milky Way is brightly displayed. Images taken with 15mm fisheye lens.

Simon Christen shot time-lapse videos of the San Francisco Bay Area, and the result speaks for itself. Nick Cave’s music helps a lot too. Go grab a cold one and watch the HD version in full screen.
