What is Time - Lapse Photography?
Timelapse photography is a complex photography workflow that is done to create amazing video clips that illustrate movement, processes, and transition that happens over long periods of time. Time-lapse photography is often a great way to create beautiful dynamic imagery of the changing environment in landscape photography, the rapid changes in urban locations, as well as to document long processes such as the growth of plants, the budding of flowers, and as well as construction of large infrastructure.
Timelapse photography offers a way to capture these long term processes and illustrate them into compressed video clips that span a few minutes. Timelapse photography is done by taking hundreds or even thousands of photos taken seconds or minutes apart with the camera either kept steady on a tripod or with minute positional adjustments through specialized motion tools. The photos are then put together in sequence to show the progression of the scene in a faster pace.
