Time lapse sequences have always amazed me, partly because of the difficulty in producing them, but also that it’s a dynamic showcase of what goes on around us that we don’t see. The photographer who shot this time lapse—Sean Stiegemeier—said about his video:
So I saw all of these mediocre pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do better. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get.
Sean shot this on a Canon 5d Mk II on a motorized dolly. I’d be curious to see the dolly set up he used. Eventually I would like to get into shooting timelapses like this one. See more of his videos on his Vimeo.
