Sharing photos of your exotic vacation on social networks can be a double-edged sword, especially during the pandemic. For a 23-year-old tourist from New York, posting photos from his trip to Hawaii had him arrested. He reportedly broke the mandatory quarantine, and it was his Instagram photos that gave him away.
Sarah is a Hawaii/San Diego based commercial photographer, best known for working in and around the ocean and her instantly recognizable style. Sarah’s work has been featured by National Geographic, Instagram, CNN, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Pelican, H&M and many other international brands.
Full disclosure: I am a big fan of Sarah and her work. Her work is absolutely breathtaking and I love that she’s been able to build a successful career around such a niche subject that she clearly has a profound passion for. I find her approach to photography and the industry very inspiring – I hope you do too!
There has been a steady flow of photos and footage from Hawaii’s Mt. Kilauea since it erupted a few days ago, but this time-lapse video is probably one of the most intense we’ve seen so far. Taken by WXChasing, it shows slow-moving lava slowly devouring a Ford Mustang parked on the side of the street.
One of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea in Hawaii’s Big Island, erupted on Thursday. The eruption is threatening hundreds of homes, as molten lava is bursting from fissures that opened in the Leilani Estates. Mick Kalber has filmed the eruption from a helicopter. It shows the biggest fissure eruption he has seen so far: it is impressive, but at the same time truly heartbreaking.
Earlier this month, DIYP featured some of the most beautiful lava shots I’ve ever seen. But there was a price to pay for these photos: photographer Erez Marom melted his drone. Seeing the images, I’d say it was definitely worth it. And now, Erez has published the drone footage of the lava flows which caused his drone to melt. And guess what – the video is just as beautiful as the photos.
I love good timelapse videos. When they depict places around the planet, it boosts my desire to travel. I admire photographers who make an effort to create these demanding videos, and this time I’m presenting you with a timelapse by Chris Biela.
Last time he took us to Chicago, and this time we go somewhere warmer – Hawaii. It features some of the most beautiful places on the Island of Oahu, and Chris was lucky enough to capture rainbows and supermoon as well during his stay. He shared with us some details about making the timelapse, some photos, and of course – the video that might just help you decide where to spend your summer vacation.
I guess this can be described as the universe’s biggest selfie…
Over 4 years the Pan-STARRS1 (The Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System) have been taking photos of the skies from its location on a desolated, dormant volcano in Maui, Hawaii. Those four years (and half a million exposures) of data collection resulted in a huge single image (and database) which is over two million gigabyte big.
In fact the image is so big, that if printed at full res, it would be 2.4 miles wide, and show about three billion stars. How’s that for a selfie?!
Kīlauea is an active shield volcano in Hawaii. It is the most active of five which make up the island. During a flyover by with Paradise Helicopters, documentary maker Mick Kalber captured what can only be described as a giant smiley. It appears that nature is not without a sense of humour.
The volcano is somewhere between 300,000 and 600,000 years old. It emerged above sea level around 100,000 years ago. Its name literally means “spewing” in the Hawaiian language, referring to its frequent outpouring of lava. As a result of this spewing, the sight disappeared a few moments later.
While out shooting a wonderful tutorial on how to capture and process seascape photography, Hawaiian photographer Raiatea Arcuri had a bit of a spill when a rogue wave took out him and his tripod.[Read More…]
Travis Sanders visited the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park on Saturday night with his wife and daughter in order to see the rising lava lake at Halema’uma’u Crater, but never imagined that he’d turn into the main attraction.
At some point Sanders decided to use a drone to capture the spectacle and the crowds, later claiming he was unaware his actions were against the law, but things turned ugly when a park ranger approached and demanded that he brings it down.
Accounts of what happened after the ranger asked to see Sanders’ ID greatly differ. The photographer stated he was simply trying to avoid a confrontational ranger, while park officials said the “very unruly” suspect fled the scene and was stopped in order to protect the hundreds of people at the scene and prevent him from falling down the edge of the 500-foot deep caldera.
