Time-lapse photography (<--- click on the link to read more about it on Wikipedia!) is a really amazing photographic technique. Time-lapse photography appears to be like video but at its essence it is still photography. Like video, multiple "frames" are taken and viewed in rapid succession. Depending on how much time has "lapsed" hundreds to possibly tens of thousands of images can be used to create the final image. Actions or events that would take hours to happen stream by in mere minutes, speeding up the world and sometimes making the mundane incredibly fascinating!!
Please enjoy these 5 awesome examples of time-lapse photography that I (and many of our students) have viewed over the past year:
