As breathtaking as a lot of landscape timelapses are, there is just something about watching plants – or in this case, flowers – in a timelapse that is just so beautiful and mesmerizing. Today, I have an absolutely gorgeous timelapse for you from David de los Santos.
The video you are about to watch was a culmination of over 9 months of work, and 50,000 photos. The results speak for themselves…
If you are interested in shooting your own “flower growing” timelapse, David was kind enough to share what flowers open fastest. According to the description of his video, “Lilium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, alstroemeria, peonies and nigella damask.” Those are your best options for attempting something like this.
It actually reminds me a lot of another stunning plant timelapse that I shared a little over a year ago. You can find that one here. I find myself once again very inspired to do a timelapse project, and once again, it will go away as soon as I remember the amount of time it would take to complete one, haha.
What are your thoughts on this timelapse video? What do you think the biggest challenge of a project like this would be?
