Stunning Nature Photography From Terje Sorgjerd [VIDEO]

As an enthusiastic amateur photographer and certified shutterbug, I tend to get excited when I see stunning images from the pros. Then I wonder how they did it. Then I realize they’ve got more money in their camera bag than I do in my car. Then I wonder again …


All those thoughts and more ran through my mind when I saw these unbelievable nature photography images captured by Terje Sorgjerd. You can watch the videos below, but he actually shot these in 30 second (or thereabouts) still exposures, then streamed them as a video. In the old days, that was called Stop Motion Photograpy.

A quick look at the photographer from the 1930s on the left will drive home the amazing photographic technology that we have available to us today, as pros or simple enthusiasts. I remember learning the basics of aperture and shutter speed on my father’s 1950s era Kodak Retina 1a. When that camera was invented no one even dreamed we could capture images like these. That’s one of the observations that Terje makes in the Wall Street Journal video presentation below.

I’ve attached a couple links to Terje’s work below, and I’m sure if you do a search on his name you’ll find more. The video on the Wall Street Journal site actually shows Terje explaining how he created some of the shots, how he just lucked into an active Aurora Borealis, and the sandstorms that he though would ruin his shots but turned out to play a major role in making them so spectacular.
