Time-lapse photography, also known as time-lapse video, is a shooting technique that compresses time. It shoots a group of photos or videos Later, by connecting photo series or extracting video frames, the process of several minutes, hours, or even several years is compressed into a short period of time and played as a video. In a time-lapse video, the process of slowly changing objects or scenes is compressed into a short period of time, presenting a wonderful scene that is usually undetectable by the naked eye.
The process of shooting time-lapse photography with a camera is similar to making a stop motion animation (Stop Motion), connecting a single still picture in series to get a dynamic video. It is a means of recording at regular intervals, and reproducing the slow changing process of the scene with obviously changing images.
For example, the blooming of flower buds takes about 3 days and 3 nights, which is 72 hours. One frame of it is shot every half an hour, and the slight changes in the flowering movement are recorded in sequence. A total of 144 frames are shot, and then they are projected on a projector at a normal frequency (24 frames per second) within 6 seconds.
