""Timestacking""


Germantown, US
          

Hi,

I posted this in the time lapse forum, but I thought landscape Nikonians might also be interested.

I have run across a technique that might interest you guys. I haven't read through all the posts, but haven't seen any about this. I saw some photos by Matt Molloy and thought they were really cool. He calls the process timestacking, and he takes a series of time lapse photos and blends them using photoshop, same as you do for star trails. I think he gets some really great effects: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2013/04/smeared-skies-made-from-hundreds-of-stacked-photographs-by-matt-molloy/ .

So I did a few time lapses the other day and these are my first attempts at "timestacks":

An interesting technique, and I really like the last picture, as it has a very dramatic sky.

What was your interval between shots that you did? I tried some cloud shots with interval of 2 minutes and it just turned out to look like a normal cloudy sky. No artistic effect at all.

I used an interval of 3 seconds, but it was a breezy day, so the clouds were moving along fairly quickly. I did 100 shots, so it was about 5 minutes total, and in the different pictures I varied how many of the shots were included (the first one above was a stack of all 100, and the second is about 25).

Very cool. The last one is especially good.

Apparently a breezy day makes for more dramatic cloud effects. Seems like you would also need a good ratio of cloud/sky or the clouds coud cover all the sky.
