Welcome To Hawaii: Timelapses and Giggles

I got a new tripod for Christmas. And I already had an iPhone 6 Plus in my pocket. Then, Joel went on winter break from medical school. Then, Ryan decided to visit from Boston. Time to make a video!

You early Exploration: Hawaii readers might vaguely recall that I used to post a bunch of timelapse stuff back in the day. And then I stopped. I’m back. The iPhone 6 made it fun again. Did I mention that I shot this completely with an iPhone 6 Plus? Oh, I also picked up a remote for my DSLR and some other interesting gear. Can’t wait to do some fun time-lapse stuff with that soon, too!

Hawaii Super Moon 2012

Last night, moon gazers and photographers were out in full force to catch a glimpse of super moon 2012. According to NASA, the super moon hit at exactly 8:34 p.m. Pacific time, meaning that at this moment the moon reached its “closest point to Earth in its elliptical pattern” and lined up with both the Earth and the sun “to become gloriously full.” Anthony Cook, astronomical observer at L.A.’s Griffith Observatory, also noted that the moon would be 30% brighter than usual.

Welcoming 2012: A Waimea Bay Sunset Timelapse

While Marvin spent the first day of 2012 just a few clouds away from Heaven, I decided to spend it at arguably the most famous surfing beach in the world, Waimea Bay. Located in Haleiwa on the North Shore of Oahu, Waimea Bay is known as a world class surfing spot and the backdrop for the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau, or, as it is affectionately know, The Eddie. The Eddie is currently being held this year, waves cooperating, until February 29, 2011 (the event started on December 1, 2011).
