A Czech photographer named Katka Pruskova has created an absolutely stunning video, which highlights the natural beauty of flowers. By combining thousands of still photos of flowers into a time-lapse video, Pruskova's photographs show flowers changing from bud to bloom before our very eyes.
Pruskova herself had this to day about the video, as written on Vimeo.com:
It was shot in a homemade “studio” that I made in a cabinet. I covered the back of the cabinet with black cloth, the flower was placed in the middle, and the whole cabinet was then covered with another cloth to insulate from the daylight (to keep the light constant, which is the most important). Two led lamps were used to illuminate the flowers.
Some flowers bloomed in hours, some in few days. Therefore the interval between photos varies from few seconds to several minutes depending on the type of flower. After several missed tries you’ll learn. In order to keep ISO as low as possible (couldn’t go lower than 640 because of low light), the shutter speed was usually 1/5 s at f/16. All flowers are mine or from my mother’s garden
