The island of Oahu - Hawaii. The most visited and well known touristic destination. However to experience Hawaiian spirit you have to escape the crowds. Coming to Hawaii is definitely special to me. I could stay 24 hours a day and absorb the scenery. It is never enough. Part of my trip I spend on North Shore to explore less known spots. To capture some beautiful sunrises and visit amazing, tranquil places. Love when it rains. There is always a rainbow somewhere. On one day I catch six (6) in a row! My personal record:)
Capturing "Supermoon" was one of my highlights. Horizon was a little cloudy but moon appeared so large and bright, almost as daylight. This lifetime experience under the palm tree? I call it - spectacular.
There is always not enough time to see it all and capture it but my camera was "ON" all the time. I explored all sides of the island and number of beaches, waterfalls, beautiful hikes, overlooks, "the others" village from movie LOST. I feel like this place is so special to me, I wanted to dedicate my whole project to the People of Hawaii, their Land, and their Culture as a "THANK YOU".
It has been an amazing journey from the first day on the island to final touch in my project. Of course, there is a lot of scenes from South Shore Honolulu - couldn't miss that. Sunsets on Waikiki are one of the best-known attractions and visiting Pearl Harbor is a "must" for everyone. Even the rainbows in the city are magical.
This project took longer then I thought but it was fun to make. I captured over 60K stills in 100 + time lapses. Used Canon 5D MK III with Promote Control, Syrp Genie Mini, Manfrotto tripod. Pictures processed in LR Time Lapse, Lightroom 5 and edited in Sony Movie Studio 13.
