More specifically, it’s a cinematography technique dealing with slowing the capture rate of film frames from a standard rate, like 24fps (24 frames per second) to a much slower rate, such as seconds, minutes, hours, or even days. When played back at a standard speed of 24fps, time appears to be moving faster (people move around faster, buildings get constructed in minutes vs months, and flowers grow in front of your eyes. To help understand time-lapse photography a little better: capturing images at one second intervals and playing them back at 24fps means the the video will be sped up 24 times the normal viewing rate. In essence, it’s similar to hitting the fast-forward button…
