Photographers slice your way to uniqueness. Time slice photographs may soon be a new presentation craze for photographers all over the world.
Time slicing can be referred as “Bullet Time” (also known as adrenaline time, focus time, frozen time, the big freeze, dead time, flow motion, or time slice) is a special and visual effect that refers to a digitally enhanced simulation of variable-speed (i.e. slow motion, time-lapse, etc.) photography used in films, broadcast advertisements, and video games. It is characterized both by its extreme transformation of time (slow enough to show normally imperceptible and unfilmable events, such as flying bullets) and space (by way of the ability of the camera angle — the audience’s point-of-view — to move around the scene at a normal speed while events are slowed). This is almost impossible with conventional slow-motion, as the physical camera would have to move impossibly fast; the concept implies that only a “virtual camera“, often illustrated within the confines of a computer-generated environment such as a virtual world or virtual reality, would be capable of “filming” bullet-time types of moments. Technical and historical variations of this effect have been referred to as time slicing, view morphing, slow-mo, temps mort, and virtual cinematography.
Photographer Richard Silver understands the beauty each and every hour of the day has to offer. So, in typical 21st century fashion, he developed a way to collapse all of these distinct visual splendors into a single, multifarious object of beauty.
The photographs in his “Time Slice” series feature a single landmark captured at up to 36 different times throughout the day, all spliced and layered to create one almighty, timeless depiction. This time he’s taking his “time slice” photography across the world, capturing iconic buildings in cities all over the globe. From the Easter Island Statues to the Colosseum in Rome, Silver captures some of the worlds most magnificent creations, splitting frames and composing them together to show the landmarks from sunrise to sunset in a single frame.
This creates some simply stunning images and give you a euphoric feeling of how a simple idea can create an unusually beautiful photograph. Enjoy this rare treat of photographic depiction perfection.
