This gorgeous video reveals the fascinating process behind the black-and-white work of wildlife photographer Asgeir Helgestad.

Helgestad — an award-winning photographer, filmmaker and author who captures the natural beauty of his home country of Norway — says he doesn't want to look into the animals' wold; he wants to be a part of it.
