We mark #WorldPhotographyDay 2019 by taking a look back into our blog archive and reflecting on photography as craft, as science, as art and as history.
The origins of both photography & time-lapse photography are rooted in its function as a scientific tool. Over the years, this function has shifted towards more creative motivations. Time-lapse, therefore, is a product of both science & art.
Part II of this blog series continues to document time-lapse and its uses, beginning with the 1950s, taking us ‘Through the Decades’ to the present day.
In Part I of this two-part blog, we map out the history of time-lapse from the 1870s to the 1930s, featuring key interventions from the likes of Eadweard Muybridge, Georges Méliès, Dr. John Ott, and more.
How can time-lapse help advance scientific investigation? We explore some recent applications in different branches of this discipline, including natural sciences, geoscience, and biology.
Have you ever wanted to see a butterfly emerge from its cocoon or see the depths of the sea in all its glory? Thanks to time-lapse, this and more is all possible.
Time-lapse is a brilliant tool in time-and-motion studies. This in itself lends itself to and is used by scientific industries, and helps to explore processes not usually seen by the naked eye.
Science is at the very heart of every time-lapse.
Whilst it might not be the subject of it, the roots of these videos comes from chronophotography.
