Photo Shattered Sunset par Matt Molloy on Photo Pin, World Of Color, Photos, Pictures, Cats And Kittens, The Outsiders, Sunrise, At Least, Clouds

I looked outside as the sun was setting and was unimpressed. I even remarked about how there wasn't much of a sunset this night. There was a very small and faint pink line near the horizon while the rest of the sky was solid grey with no breaks in the clouds. Just 5 minutes later I saw this and scrambled to capture it. Touché nature! You got me again. It's too bad that I didn't start a timelapses earlier, but at least I caught what I did.

This time stack tutorial turns your landscapes into Impressionist painting-inspired images. Live Earth, Time Lapse Photo, Cool Pictures, Cool Photos, Beautiful Pictures, Mind Blowing Images, Composition, Drops In The Ocean, Star Trails

305 photos representing 2 hours and 45 minutes of real time in one image. I just read that there is nothing to stop earth from spinning, so it could potentially spin forever. Perpetual motion? Possibly, but somehow I doubt it. I think the universe will out live earth because the sun will devour our planet someday, and that is just a mere "drop in the ocean" of this too-big-to-imagine thing we call the universe. Life is beautifully ridiculous, and that is why I love it!

Glow sticks going down a river long exposure edited on photoshop Night Photography, Art Photography, Glow Stick Crafts, Photo Merge, Glow Sticks, One Image, Press Photo, Make It Through, Light Painting

A friend and I brought over 100 glow sticks into the woods. My friend went up stream and threw the glow sticks in the stream while I gathered them down stream. I built a net with chicken wire to try and catch the glow sticks, but I still ended up chasing after some that made it through somehow. This is 319 photos merged into one image using the lighten layer-blending mode in photoshop.

Photo Gone With the Sun par Matt Molloy on

73 photos merged into one image using the darken layer-blending mode in photoshop. After merging all the photos with the darken layer-blending mode the water was nearly black, so I did another stack merging all the photos together with the lighten layer-blending mode (like I usually do) and added the water back in to the darken stack.

By Matt Molloy - A lovely sunset to end a lovely day. My mom went out on her cross country skis for the first time this year, leaving these two trails in the snow.

A lovely sunset to end a lovely day. My mom went out on her cross country skis for the first time this year, leaving these two trails in the snow. I'll have to see if my ski boots still fit before winter is over. (we got a lot of rain yesterday and today, but there's more snow in the forecast)

Not to be confused with Iceland. This is one of the two streets in my subdivision a day (or after the ice storm. That's me, standing in the middle of the road. Ice Storm, Ice Land, Landing, Country Roads, Confused, Explore, Street, Day, Photography

Not to be confused with Iceland. This is one of the two streets in my subdivision a day (or 2?) after the ice storm. That's me, standing in the middle of the road.

Cracking the Crust by Matt Molloy on

This was a test shot for an idea I've been wanting to try for a while now. The test shot went alright, but I think the foot prints are little over exposed, and that's part of the reason why the first attempt was a fail. I over compensated and my lighting looks very under exposed. (I haven't looked at it on the computer yet) This is why I wish I had a good light painting partner. (I might have got that one beam of light spaced a little more even in the test shot too)

Involute of a circle by Matt Molloy A Perfect Circle, Photo Pin, Light Painting, Waves, Beach, Photography, Outdoor, Shovel, Spiral

It started with a circle, which I made by standing in one place and turning while I chipped the ice with a shovel. It's not a perfect circle, since I was eye-balling the distance I kept the shovel from my feet, and I probably didn't pivot on one precise position, though I think I did alright. Trying to keep the spacing of the spiral even was a little harder, but I think I did alright. This was the "blueprint" for some light painting I had planned.

Ethereal Flow by Matt Molloy, via

I used a really powerful flash light to back light the trees and for the blue stream I used a wand that I made from a bunch of cheap LED lights from the dollar store attached to a piece of wood and covered with streamers I made from tissue paper. (to soften the lights) The worst part was when I finished and realized that every shot was slightly out of focus.Oh, I should also mention this was made from multiple exposures that I combined with my usual time-stack technique.
