Spotlight: It's Time to Watch Some Remarkable Videos

By David Schonauer   Thursday August 27, 2020


It’s time for our August video spotlight.

Today we feature a variety of inventive and dazzling video work, including a time-lapse that “blends time” to create something visually surprising.

Photographer Martien Janssen has been “playing with the element of time,” combining images in creative ways to create “a new type of dimension” in his timelapse photography, notes PetaPixel. An example of what he’s been doing is his video TimeBlend, below.

To create the video, which he shot in Bagan, Myanmar, Janssen used a stacking technique usually called cloud-stacking. Basically, adds PP, he blends the images in each time-lapse sequence into each other, creating something striking and painterly in the process.

“By blending images from the timelapse sequence with each other, I aim to show the changes that occur over time blended into each frame,” he says. “It captures time in a way we can’t perceive with our own eyes. You’re no longer looking at a moment, but a blend of time that can show the trails of the stars for an entire night of up to 10 hours. In other words, what you’re looking at is the motion of time and change of light. So in a way ‘I’m ‘drawing with light by blending time.’”

“Janssen’s TimeBlend is a good reminder to try and think outside the box on occasion, instead of sticking with the accepted methodology for capturing a certain subject,” notes PetaPixel.

Below is another visually dazzling video comes from the filmmakers at Envisioning Chemistry, who specialize in making science-related macro and timelapse work.


For their timelapse The Vibrancy, they used a polarized light microscope to capture intense colors as various substances crystalize.

Want more science-related video? Mars in 4K (below) comes from ElderFox Documentaries.  Using ultra-high resolution photo mosaics captured by NASA’s various Mars rovers over the years, they’ve created a 4K UHD tour of the Martian landscape.

The video’s narrator discusses the cameras aboard the rover and explains why the video was put together this way. Essentially, he notes, though “the cameras are high quality, the rate at which the rovers can send data back to earth is the biggest challenge.” It wouldn’t be practical to send back 4K resolution video.

While we’re contemplating the cosmos: Below is a video from UK-based Seán Doran, who took timelapse photography of Comet NEOWISE captured by astronauts aboard the International Space Station and, as PetaPixel notes, turned it into "a real-time video.”

Did you have a chance to view (and photograph) the comet last month? This is what it looked like from 254 miles above Earth.

Our last video for August was also made at altitude, though not quite as high. It comes from Paul Nurk, who takes the notion of FPV droning to a new artistic level, notes DIY Photography. Usual FPV (First-Person View) drone racing — in which the controller wears a head-mounted display showing a live stream camera feed — are visually undistinguished. Not Nurk’s. He built a $20,000 FPV drone mounted with a RED Epic Mysterium-X camera and then sent it diving from an 18-story building.

“Flying a 30lb rig takes a lot of planning and preparation to build it in a way that was safe and reliable, especially if you want to fly it the way Paul does – which also took a lot of practice to learn,” notes DIYP.

    How I Got My Husband back... Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. obodubu monday can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family is living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr. obodubu monday If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him +2349058774809 or Email him at : :babadoctorobodubuspiritualhome@gmail.com
