Mind-Blowing Smeared Sky Photography by Matt Molloy

Canada-based photographer Matt Molloy brings the beautiful sky photography to a new level. By stacking hundreds of separate sky shots he is able to achieve an incredible brush-like effect. Each final picture in his “Smeared Sky” photo series is a result of combining from 100 to 200 photographs.

The number of pictures he uses depends on various factors, such as weather conditions, cloudiness, or whether the object in the picture is moving or static. “Sometimes these beautiful clouds are moving quickly and there are lots of them. If I stack too many photos from a timelapse like that, it can get a little messy,” says Matt, adding that it’s usually mid-day timelapse that causes more problems.

Matt has been shooting these cool photos for over three years now: “For every day that I don’t shoot a timelapse, I probably shoot two the next day,” he says.

What draws Matt to these interesting photos most is the experimenting, as you never know what you’re going to get in the end. That’s especially true with the sunsets, as the sky gets increasingly darker – but Matt says these timelapse seem to work very well. Check out his beautiful photos for more!
