There’s nothing quite like watching a supercell storm violently take shape across the flat plains of the Midwest. Stormchaser Ty Schmitt put together a 4-minute timelapse showing off mother nature’s raw beauty across three months during spring 2019.
Man, those are some incredible shots. If I had to pick a favorite, it’s the stormy sunset at 2:33.
How did Schmitt go about creating this timelapse? He used a Nikon D850 for all the shots and then edited it using After Effects, Premiere Pro, and LRTimelapse. And I’m sure a whole lot of patience. These kinds of shots don’t happen every day.
And if you’re feeling the inspiration to give this kind of photography a shot yourself, here’s an excellent tutorial about shooting lightning to get you started.
