A well known technique in astrophotography timelapse videos are Star Trails, where you 'drag out' rotating stars. This effect is caused by the rotation of our planet relative to the (in reality) 'static' stars in the night sky.

One year ago, while looking at one of Lincoln Harrison's photos, I came up with a workflow on how to achieve a spiralling or vortex effect for static timelapse sequences. The vortex images are usually created using a zooming device, which zooms in during the recording of the photos, after which you stack them in post and get a spiral as the endresult.

As the timelapse community is very saturated with a lot of the same techniques, coming up with a new workflow to achieve something visually interesting is very thrilling!
