Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frame rate is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster. Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of slow motion.
An exposure technique in time-lapse photography, in which the position of the camera is being changed between each exposure in order to create a tracking shot in time-lapse sequences. In contrast to a simple motion time-lapse – dolly shots, which are realized with short camera sliders; in hyper-lapse photography, the camera is being moved through very long distances.
Aerial photography is the taking of photographs or video of the ground from an elevated/direct-down position. Usually the camera is not supported by a ground-based structure. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or "drones") are one of the platforms for aerial photography. Mounted cameras may be triggered remotely or automatically.
Any shot where the camera moves alongside the object(s) it is recording. In cinematography, the term refers to a shot in which the camera is mounted on a camera dolly that is then placed on rails – like a railroad track. The camera is then pushed along the track while the image is being filmed.
Typically this style is achieved when each film frame is captured at a rate much faster than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving more slowly. Slow motion can also be achieved by playing normally recorded footage at a slower speed.
