Amazing Time Slice Photography By Dan Marker-Moore

Normally we see timelapses in video form, but motion designer Dan Marker-Moore has found a way to show the passage of time in a static format. His images, which he calls time slice photographs began when he wanted to share the beauty of a timelapse on Instagram before they added the video features. His aerial view time slices feature beautiful city skylines from all over the world. He captures moons rising, suns setting, and rainbow-colored cotton candy clouds dancing through the sky.

Awakening: New Zealand’s Changing Light Captured in Timelapse

Martin Heck spent 4 months traveling through the stunning landscapes of New Zealand and capturing it in timelapses that pay tribute to the unique light of the far south. He spent the nights under the stars, capturing the sky as sweeping points of light. By day he hiked through the mountains, explored remote roads and captured the ever changing weather as it played off the rugged landscape. If you were already craving a visit New Zealand, this will tickle that itch like never before.

An Intricate Skeleton Illustration From Start to Finish

We first introduced you to Jake Lockett when we shared his progression as an artist from age 2 through 24 and now we zoom in for the progression of a single piece.

It’s amazing to see the piece go from bare bones to the intricacy we see when the work is complete. Lockett shows serious skills in the making of this illustration.

Filmakers Colin Delehanty and Sheldon Neill are to showing a view of Yosemite National Park that millions of visitors don’t get to see.

Night and Day At the Same Time

By combining timelapse and rotoscoping techniques, director Philip Stockton presents New York City in a new light… and darkness at the same time. By piecing together scenes that were shot in the same location for 4 to 8 hours, Stockton collides daytime and nighttime into one gorgeous shot. See brightly lit cars on lamplit streets and sunlit people walking through nighttime intersections. The awe-inspiring imagery is well worth the months of late nights Stockton spent seamlessly editing this footage together. What an amazing idea!
