It almost defies belief what modern science is capable of. Take this facial reconstruction of Meritamen, a mummified Egyptian woman who may have lived anywhere from 2000-3500 years ago. The reconstruction was conducted by scientists and researchers from Monash University, the University of Melbourne, the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine and many others.
You pop some paracetamol or ibuprofen and don’t give much thought to the journey it’s about to take through your body. But what if you could capture part of that trip? You know, the pretty part when it’s dissolving in your fluids. Doesn’t sound like tempting viewing, but photographer Ben Ouaniche has delivered a fair approximation.
Video: If you didn’t grow up in the American Midwest, you’ve probably never truly experienced the fury of a tornado-spewing summer thunderstorm. Storm chaser and wedding photographer Mike Olbinski edited 60,000 frames worth of timelapse sequences into this six-minute montage called Vorticity that will leave you with a new respect for Mother Nature.
There’s an old saying — go to Melbourne if you want to experience all four seasons in one day. It’s not literally true, of course, though you can get close by simply watching this excellent timelapse from photographer Alexander Chin, which maps the city’s seasons, side by side, in a single video.
Until today, there really wasn’t a good reason for any sane human to buy a consumer 3D printer. But thanks to animator Eran Amir, the tech has a raison d’etre: So that everyone can 3D print tiny baby sculptures and use them to shoot hilarious timelapse videos of an albino infant sprinting around the world. It should have been so obvious all along.
You may enjoy watching the hours of footage you recorded the last time you went skiing, but your friends are too polite to tell you how boring it actually is. So instead of spending days editing your adventures down to a short highlight reel, Microsoft has just introduced a new app called Hyperlapse that can automatically turn long, shaky videos into short, steady timelapse clips.
Remember when timelapses first started hitting the internet? Simple sunsets over the word’s greatest cities were enough to enthral. This over-the-top time lapse of Dubai is a perfect reflection of its very subject: opulent, excessive, awe-inducing.
Perhaps you were lucky enough to bag a shiny new DSLR for Christmas last year (and a nice lens or two) and after taking a few snaps of random objects, you’re ready to take on something a little more challenging. A timelapse is a good place to start on the journey to more sophisticated photography and if you’re wondering what you’ll need, this video should help.
