HDR and HD timelapse video of Ala Moana fireworks

Fireworks over Ala Moana

My favorite pic of the night. I found three frames from the timelapse below that fit just perfectly together to make an HDR photo. The exposure settings of each of the frames are the same but the rocket explosion cast a wide range of illumination over the three exposures. Wide enough to piece together an HDR in Photomatix.

Photobug details of the time lapse: Shot with my Nikon D90 w/ a Nikkor 14-24 mm f/2.8G. ISO 200, f/4, 2 seconds per frame. Scaled the frames down to 1526×1080 and stitched together with Adobe Premiere elements at around 6 frames per second. The flash player below scales down the video to fit in the browser window. I highly recommend downloading the video and watching it in full screen 1080i.

Panorama from TheBoat

I took a trip on TheBoat w/ some Flickr peeps a couple of weeks ago. Here’s a couple of panorama’s of Honolulu shot from the ocean.

I also turned on my GPS tracker to geotag my photos. I overlayed the track on Google Earth and saved the screen shot.

World Wide Photowalk, Honolulu HI – July 18th

World Wide Photowalk - July 18, 2009

Come join us for a photo walk around Downtown Honolulu on July 18th.

We will meet at 4:00 p.m. at the Iolani Palace front lawn. This has been one of the most popular locations for the Hawaii Flickr Meetup. After a short introduction we will take a stroll through downtown honolulu and Chinatown. We will end our photowalk at a yet to be determined restaurant in Downtown or Chinatown. For this reason I recommend that you park somewhere in Downtown/Chinatown and walk to Iolani Palace.

Here is a Google Map of the municipal parking lots in Chinatown. Their rates are probably the cheapest you will find in the downtown areas.
