Amazing Smeared Sky Photography by Matt Molloy
Photographer Matt Molloy, who is located in Canada, elevates the art of capturing the sky. He achieves a unique brush-like look by combining hundreds of different sky photos. In his “Smeared Sky” photo series, the final image is created by blending 100 to 200 individual photos.
He uses a certain number of photos depending on various variables, including the weather, cloud cover, and whether the object in the photo is moving or still. There are many of these lovely clouds, and sometimes they move swiftly. It can get messy if I stack too many images from a timelapse like that, says Matt, who adds that midday timelapse typically presents more issues.
Over the past three years, Matt has been taking these fascinating pictures. “For every day that I don’t shoot a timelapse, I usually take two the next day,” he says.
The experimentation in these intriguing photographs is what attracts Matt the most because you never know what you’re going to get in the end. This is particularly true during sunsets because the sky gets darker and darker, yet according to Matt, these time-lapse appear to work well. See more of his gorgeous pictures!
