My wife Cathy's blue glass collection is the subject of this video demonstrating the use of a motorized slider combined with a macro lens.

We start off with a time lapse. The slow movement of the dolly adds an interesting counterpoint to the fast motion of the scene. This technique can be used for traffic, clouds, people activities and many other subjects.

Macro dolly shots are great for products, art, jewelry, flowers etc. Many subjects can be rendered as beautiful abstracts at close range.

The motor system I built is quick and easy to set up and is battery powered. Motor, controller, belt and pulleys from Servocity.com.
