” Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.” – Wikipedia
The app I write about, Triggertrap, is probably the best ‘new’ way of making your own timelapses . You use this cool little app to trigger your camera via your iPhone, but it’s got so many ways of doing this that the possibilities are practically endless.
I wrote a kind of ultra condensed ‘how to’ guide and took a picture of myself painting with light (which as a single image is more of a ‘long exposure’ than a ‘timelapse’). Hopefully someone finds it useful!
