Smeared Skies - Matt Molloy
One day he began experimenting with time-lapse sequences by taking hundreds of images as the sun set and the clouds moved through the sky. Molloy then digitally stacked the numerous photos to reveal shifts in color and shape reminiscent of painterly brush strokes that smeared the sky. You can learn more about his “timestack” technique over at Digital Photo Magazine and prints are available here. (via bored panda)

FIREFLYS - Photo: Tsuneaki Hiramatsu
Tsuneaki Hiramatsu knew something was up. It was the end of December and his amateur photo bloghad suddenly jumped from a handful of visitors a day to thousands. The telephone customer service agent and hobby photographer was surprised.
“I was like, what happened?!” says the 35-year-old Hiramatsu, who lives in Okayama City, Japan.
What happened was that Hiramatsu’s long exposure and time-lapse photos of Japanese fireflies had started to go viral. Someone, somewhere, had re-posted his photos and they were spreading across the blogosphere like wildfire.
