A new time-lapse video from photographer Katka Pruskova captures the moment various flowers burst into bloom, creating stunningly beautiful images.
Katka Pruskova is a 32-year-old photographer from the Czech Republic. When she decided to take time lapse photos of flowers, she created a homemade studio. Using an old cabinet, she covered the back of it with a black cloth and placed a flower in the middle. She then covered the entire cabinet with another cloth to "insulate from the daylight", saying that keeping the lighting consistent was the most important part of the process. She used two LED lamps to illuminate the flowers.
According to Pruskova's Facebook page, it took her 730 hours to take the more than 7000 photos needed to create the video. She then took the photos and wove them together to create a nearly 3 minute video detailing the moment various flowers began to bloom.
Using flowers out of her mothers garden, Pruskova featured Amaryllis, Lilies, Zygocactus, Roses, Gladiolus and Gardenias in the video.
The video, which was posted on January 5th, has gone viral, receiving 102,818 views and more than 1,000 likes in less than a week's time.
