Light Club has launched a new video called 'the photo technique perfect for storytelling' and it looks into the antique photographic method of Chronophotography (also commonly known as 'sequence photography'today). 

The aim of the video is to highlight the potential of the technique for storytellers as it allows you to capture movement through a frame by capturing someone or something ar various points through the frame. 

The history of the technique and how other photographers have successfully used the method for capturing images is the main focus of the video but quite a few have asked the Light Club to do a follow-up video on the actual technique involved so watch this space for that one.

For inspiration, some interesting images are shared in the video, of which, you can take a look at (a couple) in more detail below.
