How does one do a time lapse video in the public? I can understand if the time lapse is taken from indoor looking out to a window or something like that. But how does one take, say, a time lapse looking up into the Eiffel tower? Do you literally sit there and watch the tripod for 4 hours straight?
I guess same question to those multi days time lapse. Is there a special way of securing the equipment without getting it stolen or knocked over?
