If you haven’t heard of the Parallax effect, then you’ve been missing out. Parallax is described as “The effect whereby the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions, e.g., through the viewfinder and the lens of a camera.” As you can tell by watching this video brought to you by the people at WWF(World Wild Found of Nature) using only still photographs from their massive image archives.

“If you haven’t heard of the Parallax effect, then you’ve been missing out.”

Parallax is an awesome example of technology and photography that seems to merely merge effortlessly into one truly amazing example of art. While watching videos like this one here, you will see that the still images come to live in a way that is very similar to stop-motion.

The collection of still images show not just various animals from across the planet in their natural habitat but people from different parts of the world and gives insight into their lives and costumes. Maybe the best part of the Parallax effect is that the real-life swift movements are transformed into elegant motions, causing the illusion that the world itself is moving so slowly that it might just stop before your eyes.
