LRTimelapse will than take your movies to the next level. It allows you to continuously change Adobe Lightroom or Camera RAW development parameters over the time which enables key-frame animations like in video-processing. The great advantage over post processing your time lapse sequences in your favorite video production software is the much better video quality gained from the preprocessing of RAW-files. Of course, you can work with JPG as well. Furthermore, LRTimelapse is one of the best instruments to deflicker your time lapse movies. Even the Holy Grail of Time Lapse Photography, seemless transitions from day to night, get as easy as a couple of clicks with LRTimelapse. You don’t even need expensive and complicated bulb-ramping devices to achieve it and get better, mostly perfect results, with a little bit of practice.
The Icelandic Challenge is the crossing of the Vatnajokull glacier. The largest in Europe, by snow kite.
The glacier includes seven volcanoes under its ice-cap; most are active. Pitted with crevasse fields, it has under it an ice cavern system several kilometres long.
With temperatures plummeting to -40 degrees centigrade and windspeeds of up to 50 km/h, an unassisted crossing by snow kite is a daunting task.
Now consider that three of the team are disabled, the Challenge becomes quite exceptional.
But then, the Challenge participants are exceptional people- three outstanding disabled athletes supported by three able bodied buddies.
The first of its kind, we shall be filming the preparation and training for the Challenge over the coming months.
Our aim is to inspire and motivate others, demonstrating that in life all things are possible with DETERMINATION, DRIVE and DEDICATION.
It is with great pleasure that we introduce Sean Rose, Tim Farr and Ben Hooper - winter sports athletes who have everything to learn about snow kiting, and Rob Snuggs, James Bateman and Dominic McBride Wilson - their buddies : experienced kiters who have a lot to learn about the preparation required to survive in the snow.
