That is what I call some great pucking photography!

Thats how "NASA" gets it's Space pictures.

"Pictures"

"How"

"Stop" it, guys...

But it's "Fun"!

Because if he just added an extra space between the words it would be hard to read.

Underrated comment right here


Kazahkahn

I thought this was a pendulum. Not a galaxy.


Chastafin

The last pic is a galaxy. The other 2 were pendulums.

Use a flashlight with black tape and a hole if you don’t wanna burn the place down


DayuSpawn

Yes, if you ''don't'' wanna burn the place down.

my zero creativity brain was expecting to see a single arc with intensely lighted ends.


N00DLEB0Y

Well it’s tossed in an elipse but that starts to spiral because of the earths rotation.


pac42

The Earth's "rotation." I do my own research. The spiral is because angels are breathing on it, but only from one side.


Devccoon

No, actually, it's because of the underground gnomes! They stomp around just below the surface and create earthquakes at the exact frequency of the human brain so we don't even notice them, but the landshiftment that they cause generates a spinning effect on free body physics objects, under the right conditions. Same reason your toilet rotates when you use it. Just gotta think it through one more step. (To be fair, you're correct that the angels are breathing on it; however, everyone knows that angels can only generate light, not move it.)

Germanofthebored

Not really. The Earth does 360 deg per day, so about 15 degrees per hour. I don’t think a pendulum like the one shown goes on for much longer than 5 minutes. So what we see can’t really be the Foucault pendulum effect. I am not sure how these Liaison patterns arise. You can think of an ellipse as a superposition of two oscillations in the x,z and y,z planes. But since the frequency of a pendulum depends on the length of the string more or less exclusively, frequency and phase should be preserved, and the track of the pendulum should be as stable as a satellite orbit


over_clox

Cool, but that battery tho...


N00DLEB0Y

Just cheap string lights wrapped on tape so only one shows.


over_clox

Oh okay gotcha, at a brief glance it looks like a /r/spicypillows LOL


BigerSoy

Am I the only one bothered that this has been compressed down into a gif with 15 frames per second instead of a video

This reminds me of the opening title sequence of Hitchcock’s movie ‘Vertigo’


DerPumeister

Finally someone sees it!


neon_overload

That would be how that design was made

Oh god my brain is connecting everything I know about physics and astronomy right now


aguygoesintoabar

Some people's Covid projects really make me feel like an underachiever.


Kamilon

Anyone else feel like they waited for nighttime and didn’t just close those blinds?


LightweightRocky

The first one looks like a POV of when you're exiting the vagina (As a baby)


Cormano_Wild_219

Thank you for clarifying it’s a baby’s point of view


LightweightRocky

Could have been interpreted as the penis exiting the vagina I thought, in which case my comment would not have made sense as the POV should have resembled an unsatisfied woman


Mohondhay

So that's how those wallpapers were made!? I always knew there was some wizardry going on!

ThinBandicoot

Cool! We had the exact same idea! [Here's one](https://flic.kr/p/6AJ56a) [Here's another one](https://flic.kr/p/6ALuRu)


N00DLEB0Y

Lovely! Those are pretty ethereal. Trying to wrap my head around the mechanics behind these.


Motozapper

Very ingenious and with really artistic results.


zhurggaming

False.


Retrrad

OK, Dwight.


zhurggaming

Low IQ people are easily amused.

r/iamverysmart?


neon_overload

I must admit, sometimes I get a kick out of looking at the comment history of these people and this one did not disappoint.


ReligiousPenguin3

Dude you gotta be more convincing when trying to troll


Motozapper

"False" as in it is not truly made this way. If so oddly enough, I had written "Watch though we'll find out that the photos are actually computer generated" but I thought it would send out mixed messages, so I removed that portion. That is the truth.


LazyM0v3r

Y’all I think the universe is a pendulum lol


SagaciousRouge

That's gorgeous!


DEBATE_EVERY_NAZI

Just casually proving flat earth, conservatives in shambles


yasithsilva

Just thinking... can't we obtain a mathematical equation for the whole motion of the pendulum coming to rest using this image?


RocketSurgeon22

That's awesome.


Cat719

Wow!


YoureProllyADork

Proof of dmt probably


profesionalbee

Pattern screamers be like:


NotAHamsterAtAll

Hmm, reminds me of galaxies...


PhlppaElhart

Couldn’t not read this as “long exposure of linoleum” lol


corvus66a

Great idea, love it .

the milky way is a hoax made by the government to sell more candy exhibit A:


[deleted]

Wait, so it was all just long exposure shots of pendulums swinging over cameras?


N00DLEB0Y

Yup. The last one is a different setup with something different hanging.


[deleted]

Man I meant a comment about the meme in regards to this image looking like a galaxy so our galaxy is just a light swinging around in a circle in front of a Camera


Chodestradamusquatch

Everyone knows that is just the 5th grade class photo background, all that is missing is a step ladder to stand next to for absolutely no reason.


Funny_Valentine23th2

10 fps


josh252

What an amazing technique to create perfect photography


cajerunner

Reminds me of a Spirograph. Those toys were great!


WigglePen

How long was the exposure and what f stop did you use? Love it!


N00DLEB0Y

I have to get back on the fstop but it was fairly high (and low iso all to keep everything as dark as possible on the long exposures) first shot was something like 248” and the second was 444”


WigglePen

Wow, that’s a long time. Thanks! I’ll try to give it a go!


N00DLEB0Y

DM if you run into any problems! Would love to see the results!


WigglePen

Thanks! BTW did you see the comment about how it would never sell as a print? Who cares? Someone who says that doesn’t get photography I think.


General_Tso75

Looks like a barred galaxy. So I guess the black hole in the center of travels the same path?

TBlair64

I was just thinking about doing this yesterday but with a moving light and a moving shadow on the wall. Photographer creativity never ceases to amaze.


micewrangler

Cool! Very creative


bigbigbigwow

Like okay? There’s a few apps that makes these on demand


KingPullCarb

Do you honestly not understand the difference between creating something yourself, and having a computer just do it for you?


Glory_to_Glorzo

Pornhub?


bigbigbigwow

I’m a professional photographer and this type of photos are useless. No one will frame them. It’s not interesting nor difficult to do.


KingPullCarb

I'm absolutely certain there's computer generated images better than any picture you have ever, or will ever take. So why bother? Could it be for the art? Did you not get into it for the artistic process? If not, than I'm guessing your pictures aren't interesting or difficult to do either.


bigbigbigwow

Yeah I dont give a flying fuck what you have to say. Who the fuck are you loser get a fucking grip lmao. Trim the beard on your neck asshole 😂


Nattman88

maybe some galaxys and stuff in the sky are moving really fast and we can only see them like pictures
