Check out Andrew Shurtleff’s stunning time-lapse video showing the world as viewed in near-infrared. The light-sensitive chips of digital cameras can sense these wavelengths outside human vision. With the right kind of video editing, that infrared world comes alive – like a planet painted from pure ice. The leafy material appears white due to its intense reflection of infrared light.
Martha Morales uses her extensive knowledge of video pre- and post-production to help create EarthSky science videos in Spanish and English. As a Video Producer for EarthSky, her special focus is the EarthSky en Español 60-second video series. She acts as the EarthSky lead set coordinator, camera operator, and story producer – capturing interviews with the world’s leading English and Spanish-speaking scientists and editing them into an accessible, informative and effective message. To accomplish this, she draws from her B.S. in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas as well as her experience working in television with PBS El Paso and Channel 6 Austin. Growing up in El Paso, TX, Martha embraces the dual identities that define the U.S.-Mexico border. She is bilingual in English and Spanish. Martha’s favorite thing about EarthSky? The amazing science shows that inspire wonder and hope about our universe and world.
