    If you search the web for creating a time lapse you will get some articles like this:

    But the general Idea is that you setup a shot on a tripod. Decide how long the timelapse should be and time span you want to cover.
    In the links example, at 24fps for a 30 second time lapse you need 720 shots. And if you take a photo every 30 seconds it will take 6 hours to produce the number of images. You can use a intervalometer to aide in this.

    Anyway you can take all the images and import them into a program like Lightroom and process the images, then compile them into a time lapse video.
