Capturing a stunning photograph on your camera is always a rewarding experience. If you haven't tried out time lapse photography, though, you really should — it's a completely different skill set, and it'll broaden your knowledge of your digital SLR or mirrorless camera. The results you can get out of a simple setup with a little bit of extra time and effort are amazing — and are great to share with friends.


It's the colours that get you when you're out in nature. If you live in a city, you're mostly dealing with drabs of grey speckled with Instagrams of exposed red bricks. If you live in the suburbs, you'll see manicured lawns, potted trees, stucco and tile roofs until you're myopic. But if you're outside, like really outside, you'll see ballets of pink, golden orgies, blistering diamonds, the honesty of red and mounds of dirt that are baked with life. It's a wonderful world out there and we don't see it enough.


A lot happens in Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, all of it dutifully overseen by a wheelchair-bound photographer from a single spot. But to take in absolutely everything that Jimmy Stewart's character does in the course of the film, you need to see this time-lapse, which stitches together an entire panorama from that single vantage point.


GigaPan, if you recall, is that incredible technology that stitches together hundreds of photos into a single, ultra-high-resolution image which you can zoom in and out of to view minuscule details. Now, GigaPan has updated their project so you're zooming in and out of moving pictures - time lapses. So you're not only flying through space, but also through time! It's called the GigaPan Time Machine.
