If photography and video had a child, it would be a timelapse. You get the best of both worlds: framing up an amazing photo, and then creating a moving visual feast out of a few thousand of those photos. But there’s some important technical details that are necessary for getting a great timelapse, and one of them is choosing the timelapse interval setting.
