Time-lapse photography is a technique in videography in which the frequency when the frame rate is captured is lower than the needed frequency in viewing the sequence back. Once the film frames are viewed at the standard speed, that’s when lapsing happens at which time appears to move faster. An ordinary person may see it as if the time is being manipulated where events and objects can be viewed in a span of like seconds or minutes.

Along with the ides of time lapse is hyperlapse which is a disclosure technique associated in time-lapse cinematography. The concept is to place the camera in a position where it can be changed once in a while for each exposure to make a tracking shot with sequences in time-lapse. In hyperlapse photography, the position of the camera tends to change over time to distant locations.

If you want to go to the most beautiful places the Swiss city of Laussane then watching this short motion time lapse film will bring you to the destination.
