Valley of Fire

Diffused Moonlight

After launching my new time lapse video Into The Night, I got some chance to go back to my hard drive with all the photos from the US trip in April. Pulled out some of them that I didn’t process when go through them the first time back in April. So there are more from that trip is coming! Hope you are not getting sick of them yet! :)

Here are a few shots taken from Valley of Fire State Park in…

Into The Night - A Timelapse Video of The Night Sky 2014

I was born and raised in Hong Kong, one of the highest light pollution city in the world. I never knew the night sky can be so beautiful. After moved to Vancouver for so many years, I still didn’t realize how much difference does it make when you can access to a real dark sky. Until few years ago when I first saw how the night sky, the milky way, the universe can be capture. Seeing the milky way with my own eyes for the first time. I quickly fell in love with that experience, the connection with the nature, the dark night. it is a very addictive experience. Vancouver might not be the best place on earth for stargazing. But sure it can access to some great dark sky within hour. Not to mention there are so many jaw-dropping landscape in the west coast.

Seeing the different stages of the night. No matter it is a full moon, crescent moon, or new moon night, It always surprise me of how beautiful it is. This year, I went on a four weeks road trip in April, drove down to the Southwest of United State and trying to capture some of these beauty at night. I drove 12000 km with a lot of sleepless nights. Here is the final video and I hope you enjoy it like I did!

There are a hand full of shots were using motion dolly. Was having some problem with the dolly after a few days into my trip. So most of the time I can’t use the dolly that I brought with me… So I have to add some movement during post.

Namibian Nights from Squiver on Vimeo.

It’s not easy to come up with something new when you visit the same place every year for more than a decade. Over the years Marsel has created the most extensive and most popular night photography portfolio of Namibia on this planet, and two years ago he decided it was time to take it to the next level.

The idea was to create a night photography timelapse video featuring his most popular subjects in this amazing country: the fairytale-like quivertrees and the eery, dead camelthorn trees in Deadvlei - something that had never been done before. But instead of going for static scenes, Marsel decided to add movement to the scenes by using a dolly system.

All scenes were shot during the night with Nikon D3, D3s and D4 cameras. We used small headlights for selectively lighting trees and rocks, and we sometimes used the moon. The brighter the scene, the more moon there was at the time. For the arch scene we timed our shoot exactly with moonset, which involved quite a bit of calculating and planning. But the hardest one of all was probably the mist scene in Deadvlei. Mist in Deadvlei only occurs around five times a year, so we had to keep a close eye on the weather predictions and many attempts were unsuccessful. When we finally got it right, the results far exceeded our expectations and show Deadvlei as no one has ever seen it before.

Each second of video consists of 30 photographs. In total, Marsel shot more than 16,000 images over a period of two years for this project.

The video won First Prize in the 2012 Travel Photographer Of The Year Awards.

It took four years but I finally got it.

A rotating supercell. And not just a rotating supercell, but one with insane structure and amazing movement.

I’ve been visiting the Central Plains since 2010. Usually it’s just for a day, or three, or two…but it took until the fourth attempt to actually find what I’d been looking for. And boy did we find it.

No, there was no tornado. But that’s not really what I was after. I’m from Arizona. We don’t get structure like this. Clouds that rotate and look like alien spacecraft hanging over the Earth.

We chased this storm from the wrong side (north) and it took us going through hail and torrential rains to burst through on the south side. And when we did…this monster cloud was hanging over Texas and rotating like something out of Close Encounters.

The timelapse was shot on a Canon 5D Mark II with a Rokinon 14mm 2.8 lens. It’s broken up into four parts. The first section ends because it started pouring on us. We should have been further south when we started filming but you never know how long these things will last, so I started the timelapse as soon as I could.

One thing to note early on in the first part is the way the rain is coming down on the right and actually being sucked back into the rotation. Amazing.

A few miles south is where part two picks up. And I didn’t realize how fast it was moving south, so part three is just me panning the camera to the left. During that third part you can see dust along the cornfield being pulled into the storm as well…part of the strong inflow.

The final part is when the storm had started dying out and we shot lightning as it passed over us.

Between the third and fourth portions we drove through Booker, Texas where tornado sirens were going off…it was creepy as all heck. And intense.

I hope you enjoy this. Once thing I’ve learned about timelapsing is that I always wish it would be longer or wouldn’t end. I wish I had been south and been able to record this storm come at me for 45 minutes.

But I love it the way it is. I wasn’t ever certain I’d see structure like this even though it’s been such a goal of mine. But we did it.

And by we, I mean myself and my buddy Andy Hoeland, who knows his crap and got us into position so we could chase this storm. Without him along I don’t know if I get this timelapse.
