New Video: Taormina, Sicily

Taormina, Sicily from Barry K on Vimeo.

 I always wanted to make a timelapse video of this spectacular place. The Mt Etna volcano , Greek Theatre, views of the coast and the streets of Taormina were very photogenic. In October 2016 l got he chance to stay there for 4 nights as part of our Sicily tour. We stay in a lovely B&B, which had a balcony that overlooked Taormina and Mt Etna. I made several sequences from the balcony as well as the streets, views and of course the Greek theatre. At the "Teatro Greco" I was not allowed to use a tripod however, I just set my camera on the stone step, which worked very well and complied with rules.

Processing the sequences as usual took quite a while. I did have some dust on the lens which took a while clean up using the Adobe Lightrool Heal Tool. Sometimes I was not happy with the result and I had to start all over again with the Heal Tool. I always apply the Heal And Upright tools after LRTimelapse processing but before exporting it.  Selection of the music was also a big challenge but eventually  I found a piece of interesting muisic from "NeoTunesLab" that just fit the video length.
