“They pierce quickly, so 1 second was adequate time to concede copiousness of subdivision between shots, though still keep a cloud positioning mostly a same,” he says.

After about 800 shots over 10 minutes, Mac’s dual 32GB memory cards were filled adult and he headed home for a subsequent step.

9 hours of modifying went into masking and selecting a 102 kite boarders seen in a shot.

“Duplicates do exist, and we attempted to space them equally opposite a support so as not to pull a eye to one sold area of a sky,” Mac says. “I did no warping or relocating of any kites and all kites exist where they did during a time a blended shot was taken.”
