Norwegian Blogger Eirik Solheim has put a his own twist on time-lapse photography, well, more like time-lapse videography, where, instead of using still frames, he combines short video clips to give the illusion of time moving faster. You can see the seasons changing, trees moving, leaves falling, as you listen to the sounds of nature, birds chirping, leaves rustling, kids playing.
His formula is quite simple: pick a spot where you can place the videocamera in the same position each time, record clips at regular (or irregular) intervals, use the native audio and “lots of dissolves”.
You can see his other time-lapse videos as well as a 5 minute tutorial on his original post from exactly one year ago (serendipity, anyone?).
