Canada based photographer Matt Molloy is a fan of time lapse portraits and natural events. Using the same process, Molloy realized he could apply the same technique to capture clouds as the day progresses. After stacking multiple exposures of the same landscape, the changes in the sky make feathery brushes strokes across the sky. The result is stunning.
“Sometimes the clouds are moving quick and there’s lots of them. If I stack too many photos from a timelapse like that, it can get a little messy. I usually try stacking all the photos from a timelapse to get an idea of what I’m working with, if it’s too crazy I’ll start taking some out and try again. I’ve also found it helps to watch them as a regular timelapse video to pick out the interesting sections. Most of the sunset stacks are around 100 to 200 photos.” – says Matt of his work.
