Capturing the concept of time in photographs is not an easy task. We do so in time lapse videos and sped up footage, but showing it in a static image is seemingly impossible; in comes time slice photography and Dan Marker-Moore.
We featured Dan Marker-Moore’s work in this article a few months ago. A time slice photograph is where numerous images are composited into one image that shows a passage of time. A time slice, according to the video, “takes slices of the same photograph, offset in time, from several seconds up to a few minutes.”
Now, Marker-Moore has released a short behind the scenes video of how he creates these compsites. He takes us through Hong Kong and Shanghai as he photographs up to a thousand photos for each time lapse, selecting only about 50 to create one time slice image. Marker-Moore also shows how he uses Lightroom and After Effects to create the incredible images that beautifully shows time passing, yet frozen.
