Matt Molloy’s time-lapse images are just awesome!
This photo stacking technique makes clouds look like brush strokes in the sky! It’s beautiful!
Watching clouds in the sky is just amazing. You discover different forms, feel time shaping. But with this new technique called photo stacking, clouds are transformed into eerie Van Gogh’s paintings and landscapes. You will see, it’s just incredible.
Matt Molloy’s “photo stack” images of landscapes show clouds that look like smears and brush strokes across the sky.
To make these ‘photo stacks’, he first shoots a timelapse, taking a photo every 5 seconds or so. He then merges several photos into one image using Photoshop like this:
[quote_box_center]I start with the first image from the timelapse as a normal photo and then blend the rest of them with the ‘lighten’ blending mode. This only adds things that are brighter than what was in the first photo, and so you can see things like the paths of stars as they move across the sky. (The movement of the stars is actually from the earth’s rotation).[/quote_box_center]
It’s an interesting way to observe time. You can see a time frame of several hours in one image, something our eyes can’t do naturally.

Well, what do you thing about these time stacking pictures? I think you would also like one in your living room.
