If you are fan of stop motion or sequential images on Facebook you are already in love with Time-Lapse. Time-Lapse is a cinematography technique that is used to increase the sequence view of frames.
The film frames are captured at a very low pace as compared to the frequency of view. These shots appear to be moving quicker when played at a normal speed. For instance, an image is clicked once every instant, then played at a rate of 50 frames per second, which would result in 50 times increase in speed.
Time speed photography should not be confused with high-speed photography, slow motion or stop motion animation. By employing the time-lapse photography technique, the actions, which are subtle to the naked eye, can be enhanced manifolds. Rising and setting of sun, movements of stars, the formation of clouds, and the opening of flower buds are all very subtle movements, which are too negligible to take note of if seen through the naked eye.
The first application of Time-Lapse photography technique is dated back to 1897 when Georges Melies applied it to his film “Carrefour De L’Opera”. In Nature Photography, F. Percy Smith is known to be the first one who made the use of this technique in his picture “The Birth of a Flower” back in 1910. In 1911-1912, Arthur C. Pillsbury designed a special camera, which was particular to record lapse time. He captured the entire life cycle of a flower with the help of his invention. Gear for recording Time-Lapse
