On a recent trip to Maui, I had the opportunity to visit the world’s largest dormant volcano – Haleakala. The size of this volcano is massive – Manhattan could fit inside. I’m still in shock at how awesome this place is. Arriving before sunrise, I placed a few cameras out in hopes to capture what people refer to as, “The most beautiful sunrise in the world.”
People gather from around the globe to witness this kaleidoscope of shifting colors – known as the “House of the Sun”. My hope is to give you a small glimpse of the energy, excitement and elegance this natural marvel brings.
During my 4 hours of shooting, I captured more than 5,000 images from 4 cameras setup on different motion control systems. I want to thank Jeremy Canterbury from http://bit.ly/1iTni5m for providing some of the cool new technology that allowed me to capture some of these moving shots. Revolve allows a fast, quick way to setup moving track shots.
Additional tracking shots were accomplished by using The Genie by Syrp – http://syrp.co.nz/ – a time lapse device that will pan your camera over time or can be used on a track. The Genie is rugged, water resistant and can stand the abuse I place on gear.
Matt Givot is not only a good friend, but also one of the most talented time lapse photographers I know. Matt generously shared his knowledge from years of doing time lapse with me and introduced me to a community of skilled time lapse photographers. My sincerest of gratitude goes to the time lapse community – with a special distinction to the Time Lapse Crew LA; who are some of the most talented people I’ve met.
Finally, thank you to my friend & photographer Matt Givot for all help with learning time-lapse and also Amber Miller for hiking up to the summit of Haleakala located at an altitude of 10,500 ft at 4:30 in the morning with me.
I hope you enjoy this 2 minute journey into the “House of the Sun”.
