This episode is available as audio with embedded images, and also as a video—go to photoactive.co and get the video link in the show notes.

In this episode, Jeff and Kirk walk through the process of using the Time-Lapse mode in the iOS Camera app as well as capturing time-lapse photos with traditional cameras.
