My First Timelapse Project

After reading and spending time in youtube and vimeo (for lesson, tips & inspiration). Im finally made my own timelapse.
This series of timelapse was shot entirely in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia. Combination of sky and land. More to come. Thanks for watching.

for those who not familiar, timelapse is a kind of cinematography technique that is produced by taking multiple shot, normally hundreds or even thousands of photographs.
What for? This sequence when we play back at normal speed (depend to frame rate when want, produces a stunning effect. Whereby time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.
For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, and then played back at 30 frames per second; the result would be an apparent increase of speed by 30 times.

Some classic subjects of timelapse photography include:
-cloudscapes and celestial motion
-plants growing and flowers opening
-fruit rotting
-evolution of a construction project
-people in the city

The technique has also been used to photograph crowds, traffic, and even television. The effect of photographing a subject that changes imperceptibly slowly, is to create a smooth impression of motion. A subject that is changing quickly already is transformed into an onslaught of activity.
The first use of time-lapse photography in a feature film was in Georges Méliès' motion picture Carrefour De L'Opera (1897). Time-lapse photography of biologic phenomena was pioneered by Jean Comandon[1] in collaboration with Pathé Frères from 1909, by F. Percy Smith in 1910 and Roman Vishniac from 1915 to 1918. Time-lapse photography was further pioneered in a series of feature films called Bergfilms (Mountain films) by Arnold Fanck, in the 1920s, including The Holy Mountain (1926).
From 1929 to 1931, R. R. Rife astonished journalists with early demonstrations of high magnification time-lapse cine-micrography[2][3] but no filmmaker can be credited for popularizing time-lapse more than Dr. John Ott, whose life-work is documented in the DVD-film "Exploring the Spectrum".
