How to Fit 24 Hours into One Photo

We’re convinced some photographers are born with a rather rare yet want-worthy gene.

…A mysterious code of DNA that inspires impossible-to-accomplish projects and an anti-impossible mechanism to carry them through.

Chris Kotsiopoulos is one of these photographers; his most recent endeavor: is it possible to capture a 24-hour day in one photograph?

500+ photos, 30 hours, and one 12V battery later, he discovered it was! See the impressive result.

Chris shot through day and night (Yup, he stayed up all night.), capturing the arch of the sun’s rise and fall and an epic 11 hour startrail with twilight hours to fill in the space between day and night.

Over a 12 hour period, he then composed the hundreds of photos into one endless panorama a la “little planet.” (Click the link below for his full description.)

Lesson learned: the next time an impossible-sounding project pops into your head, don’t write it off! Where there’s a will, there’s a way…or a mutated gene.
