Photography Mesmerizing Time-Lapse Photos from Space

From Flavorwire

I particularly like seeing the lightning flashes from above

“The crew from several expeditions on-board the International Space Station shot a series of stunning images that have been edited into a mesmerizing time-lapse video by Michael König. The progression shows the crew’s surreal orbit over earth at approximately 350 kilometers, and it’s truly breathtaking. The night flight takes you across Eastern Europe to Southeastern Asia, above Central Africa and the Middle East, and beyond. Music from Jan Jelinek (“Do Dekor”) helps set the mood, but the photographs definitely speak for themselves. Drop into sweet infinity below.”

Timelapse Photography: A Complete Guide for Beginners

If you’re not familiar with timelapse videos, you’ve probably already seen them but just aren’t aware of it. With timelapse photography, you can take sequential photos captured over a period of hours and compress them into a video of only a few minutes in length – this allows you to see a slowly changing scene at a much faster pace and can open up a whole new world of photography to you.  In theory, timelapse videos are easy to do with your camera – you’re simply taking a few hundred photos, one after another, and then lining them up in post processing. However, to get a stunning, seamless timelapse video, there’s much more involved than spending a few hours behind the lens. By at Lightstalking
