The last time we covered photographer Vincent Brady, he was turning blinking fireflies into ebullient timelapse photos—making those tiny critters look even more magical. Today, he’s again using the universe’s natural light as the source for his gorgeous photo and film work. “Planetary Panorama” is a 360° vantage into the night-sky that morphs the Earth so it looks like it’s moving at warp speed through the solar system.
On his website, Brady explains that in 2012 he was simultaneously experimenting with 360 degree panoramas in the daytime and long exposures of the stars at night. He realized he could combine the two methods, and devised a custom rig that uses four cameras and fisheye lenses to capture the sky in motion—including the north star and southern pole. "These are the images I created on the cold, dark, sleepless nights under awe-spiring skies," he wrote.
