Tim Simmons: Scotland

read
Supernatural photos of Scottish landscapes.

Browsing through Tim Simmons' vast photography portfolio, you'd think you were looking at photo stills of the most amazing sci-fi film never made. The UK photographer has an uncanny ability to make regular old Earth look like a far-away planet from Isaac Asimov's imagination. For twenty years, Simmons has been using studio still life techniques to illuminate night landscapes and create some of......read more

Tim Simmons: Urban Land Project

read
Bi-coastal photo project brings a bit of nature to the urban environs of LA and Philadelphia

The latest exhibition of Tim Simmons' landscape photos (a selection of which we previously featured here) isn't in a gallery, or a museum, or anywhere indoors. It's outside, on dilapidated brick walls in Philly and ad billboards in LA. By infiltrating the photos of natural elements -- forests, rivers, rocks, snow -- into unlikely urban settings, Simmons hopes that viewers will be......read more

Bathtub IV

watch
A time lapsed view of the Sydney, Australia coastline, in miniature.

Australian photographer Keith Loutit spent a year shrinking the city of Sydney to diorama size, using a video technique that makes everything look miniature. In "Bathtub IV," Loutit captures the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service in operation. The first responder choppers in flight, the clean beaches juxtaposed against an offshore oil platform, and the attractive little Aussies add up......read more

Eyjafjallajkull in Time-Lapse

watch
Epic cinematography of the Icelandic volcano no one can pronounce the name of.

Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands. When the Eyjafjallajkull volcano erupted in Iceland in April, Los Angeles photographer Sean Stiegemeier was so unimpressed by the "mediocre" pictures in the news that he decided to fly to Iceland to shoot it himself. After hard-fought battles with cancelled flights and bad weather, Stiegemeier had a day and half to capture the......read more

watch
Simon Christen's stunning time lapse portrait of San Francisco.

How can you bummed about fog when it looks this good? Shot by Simon Christen over the course of a year, these stunning time-lapse images capture the Bay Area in all its fog-drenched majesty. Nicely scored by "Mary's Song" from Nick Cave. Check out the waves of fog rolling over the hills at 2:00. Crazy beautiful. ...read more

The Acorn "Restoration"

watch
Simple, no-budget beauty.

From directing duo Exploding Motor Car (Winston Hacking and Brett Long) comes this video for "Restoration," the second single off The Acorn's album No Ghost. Nothing too groundbreaking going on, just some time-lapse footage of a BBQ feast on location at a farm in Ontario. Standard scene for a folky tune. But the when the sun goes down, there's some beautiful, lo-fi lighting......read more

Balloon Fiesta

watch
Michael Salisbury's epic video of the 2010 Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, NM.

Hot air balloons are powered by burning big quantities of propane, so they could hardly be considered a clean form of transport. But man, they can be pretty to look at. This time-lapse vid of the annual Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico proves it. Capturing a bunch of balloonists taking to the skies, the video was assembled by Michael Salisbury, and is nicely scored by “Phoneme” from......read more

Into the Cosmos

watch
One for the vinyl heads.

A collaboration between director/animator Chopsy and Bristol beat maestro Architeq (Tirk Recordings), "Into the Cosmos" tells the story of old LPs that are mysteriously summoned to a warehouse from their forgotten homes in attics, shelves and garbage bins. The combo of stop-frame, pixelation, live action, and time lapse animation is smoothly outfitted with music and sound effects by......read more

Blizzard Time Lapse

watch
A 20 hour whiteout, shortened to 40 seconds.

A photographer in New Jersey captured the post-Christmas blizzard by taking a single picture every five minutes starting when the snow first began to fall and ending after the last flake. (via Kottke)...read more

Chiemgau Impressions

watch
Nice moody timelapse from German photographer Mario Feil.

While backing up his computer, German photographer/filmmaker Mario Feil stumbled upon some old footage he had planned to use as stock. Lucky for our eyeballs, Feil decided the shots deserved a treatment of their own. Pieced together from footage shot in the Chiemgau region of southern Bavaria (where Germany and Austria meet), it's a beautifully moody bit of video, helped generously by the......read more
