Echinops Timelapse

Time-lapse photography is a cinematography technique whereby each film frame is captured at a rate much slower than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. Time-lapse photography can be considered to be the opposite of high speed photography.
Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, such as the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced. Time-lapse is the extreme version of the cinematography technique of undercranking, and can be confused with stop motion animation.

It works particularly well on plants – showing off their beauty through speeded up growth. Something we miss with the naked eye in our normal time and space..

  1. This is very beautiful, but might have been improved further, with a square crop rather than having so much white space to both sides

    • Yes interesting point; thanks for this. I’m trying one with an amaryllis – which of course doesn’t lend as well to rotation – but I will look closely at the cropping.

  2. Wow thats amazing!
