Time-lapse is a photographic art form that when mastered yields stunning results. Time-lapse photography is a patience game, with many second long shots taking hours to film. While great equipment helps the vision is the secret, there is no way to watch the scene being filmed, even the photographer has to wait for the first viewing to see the results of hours of work. All to produce visually stunning results.
As a form of art Time-lapse is a demanding mistress, with extreme locations and fickle weather conditions to contend with collecting enough good shots can be hazardous.
Terje Sorgjerd has both a tough disposition and a powerful vision in mind when he set out to create The Mountain. The creator of the first video, Terje, went to extreme lengths to find just the right locations in the mountains of Spain. Waited for the perfect shot to unfold then once the camera was rolling guarded it like a mother grizzly bear. His second video Aurora was shot near the Arctic circle, with hours in the freezing cold we can easily feel his pain
With sound-tracks to tame even the wildest beast, sit back, relax and enjoy 3 of the best examples of time-lapse photography in the last year.
The Mountain, filmed during a crazy week in April Terje Sorgjerd visited El Teide, Spain’s highest mountain to get the shots that make up his amazing video. Split between daytime shots and night-time sky panorama’s, many stunning images are captured high in the mountains of Spain. Sorgjerd actually hiked his way around 50 locations in the week collecting shots.
The Aurora. Time-lapse is one of the best ways to capture the Aurora Borealis – Northern Hemisphere – in all of it’s fluorescent brilliance. This is another magnificent creation of Terje Sorgjerd, and possibly one of the best Aurora videos out. Like rivers of neon flowing through the skies they are a sight to behold.
South Dakota is well known for having large expansive skies and the time lapse video South Dakota makes incredible use of these vast clear skies. Most of the time-lapse concentrates on the stars in the night sky, the normally slow star movements spring to life, giving the sky a living presence.. Shot over the period of a month when weather permitted this is a stunning example of time-lapse photography at it’s best.
