Time Lapse Photography...

The Mountain from TSO Photography on Vimeo.

Time Lapse Photography is a cinematography technique which allows the viewer to see time passing at an apparently accelerated rate.

There are many examples out there on the web, but the one above by Terje Sorgjerd has to be the best I've ever seen. You will see that he must also have had his camera mounted to a motion control rig which adds yet another dimension to his video.

Take a look at this wikipedia page just to see what things you have to take into account, now imagine the amount of work Terje had to do, pre-planning each shoot, lugging around all the equipment, setting it up, choosing the composition and just being around in the right place at the right time... really impressive !!
