2 Years of Hard Work for a 60 Second Shot

Photographers often go through hours, days, or weeks of work to achieve certain photographs, and the dedication is usually reflected in the end result. That might seem like a lot of work to you if you typically only spend a few seconds framing and snapping a photograph, but what if I told you that a crew from BBC spent two years working on a 60 second clip?

The clip is of a tracking shot where a camera moves through the forest, showing a time lapse of the plant life growing over the course of a year. Now the hour or two you might spend on a photograph doesn’t seem all that long, huh?
