Artist Matt Molloy creates smeared skies through photography trick #ArtTuesday

Via All That is Interesting.

Like many people, Matt Molloy likes to photograph his surroundings, but there’s just something different about his pieces, which he calls Smeared Skies. Though the images are created from time-lapse photos, each sunset looks as if it were painted with a series of colorful brush strokes. That brush-like effect of course doesn’t come from paint, but composes part of the photographer’s special photographic processing technique dubbed “time stacking.”

To create each image, Molloy starts by taking time-lapse photos of his given landscape. While sunrises seem to turn out best, Molloy also shoots during daytime, sunset and nighttime. Then, using anywhere from 100 to 550 photos from the time-lapse, he layers and arranges each shot to create one final smeared sky. Molloy calls the process “time stacking” because it lets the viewer see more visible time in every finished photograph.

  1. Hi there. Good job with all you do to empower creativity in everyone!

    I would like to be featured for Art Tuesday. I cant seem to find anyplace to "sign up"? How does one get to be featured?

    Perhaps you’d like to embrace my "living gallery" interactive showcase technology, as used in VARIOUS Media Ink: The Visionary Artists Showcase & Networking Events?
