Time Lapse


Time-lapse photography -- one of the special methods of photography.

Slow-motion refers to a special technique of photography that speeds up the shooting frequency (FPS) and returns it at normal frequencies. For example, using 48fps to shoot and play 24fps with a replay. All the movements are slower. For example, bullets shoot through apples, and ceramics fall to pieces. So you can get some details that you can't see with the naked eye.
