Slow Life by Daniel Stoupin

Here is a unique and fantastic bit of time-lapse photography by Daniel Stoupin depicting tiny marine animals under very high magnification.  I learned a great new term:  “Focus Stacking”, wherein multiple exposures with different focus planes are merged together in order to counteract shallow depth of field inherent in macro photography.  Bravo.

No, this was not done in the wild, but with elaborate camera set-ups using a Phantom HD High-Speed digital camera shooting at 1200 frames per second in a controlled environment.  The results are glorious.  If you watch it to the end, they show how it was all done.
