This is necessary to prevent camera shake; apart from which, you really don’t want to be stood by the camera pressing the shutter release every 2 seconds for twenty minutes or so.

For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 24 frames per second; the result is an apparent 24 times speed increase, which can show in a moment what would happen very slowly in real life.

Similarly, I have seen time-
When it comes to time-
I created this using Lightroom but there are a number of programs on the Internet that will do time-
