Time-Lapse & Still Photography

What is Time-Lapse?

adjective

adjective time-lapse:

denoting the photographic technique of taking a sequence of frames at set intervals to record changes that take place slowly over time. When the frames are shown at normal speed, or in quick succession, the action seems much faster.

OK...But what  really is time-lapse?

In a nutshell...Time-Lapse is simply compressing time...

 

Let's say we take one photograph every second for one minute. That comes out to sixty photos.

Normal video plays at thirty frames per second. So, sixty photos would play back in two seconds.

What happened is we took one minute of actual time and compressed it into only two seconds.

 

Using time-lapse allows us to 'see' things that normally move too slowly for our eyes to visualize.

Time-lapse is often used to study scientific experiments, but can also add visual-magic to normal

everyday things and occurrences.

 

Below is an example of a low cloud layer, or Thule-Fog, in a valley. A photo was taken every 5 seconds, and when compiled into a time-lapse video, the first impression of most viewers is they are looking at a boiling river-rapids. Normally, clouds and fog move too slowly for us to notice the subtle changes, but time-lapse reveals the 'magic'.

 

 

What is Time-Lapse?

Here is another example of how Time-Lapse can allow the viewer to 'see' what normally cannot be seen:

The above sequence was shot at normal video speed, ( 30 frames/sec )...It is a fine example of a wide panning establishing shot. This is a perfectly acceptable shot, ...allowing for the ridiculously high winds!

The above sequence was shot using the exact same panning motion, but this time using Time-Lapse, ( 1-frame/5-sec )...Now, the shot comes alive as we see the clouds move across the sky, and change thru out the sequence, so it becomes a much more interesting shot,...again allowing for the ridiculously high winds!
