iPhone – Hyperlapse by Instagram – Five trips around Fallbrook California

This posting contains most of an entire day driving around Fallbrook California.

The video above is a Youtube playlist that contains all five videos. Make sure you use the HD version.

This application, Hyperlapse by Instagram, is a free tool that was released a couple days ago for the iPhone. The folk at Instagram realized that the iPhone has abuilt in gyroscope whose results can be used by other applications, including the one they just released.

So, in effect, your iPhone can now be a gyrostabalized video camera. … 🙂 Cool!

One Day Road Trip – Beach Cities from Encinitas to Mulholland Drive.

I am starting to offer “One Day Road Trip workshops.” The intent is to teach a very small single-car group of people how to use their cameras to capture their imagination in various situations. I do that by showing you how to decide what we want to shoot, and how to use their cameras to capture the needed images for a wide range of photographic targets, from a single image, to multiple image HDR panoramas.

This workshop worked the San Diego to L.A. route from the south, north. The next time, we will work from the north to the south, ending with a sunset somewhere along the coast.

The day went something like this, Drive and talk about options for the next target, and plan those shots while driving. Pull over at the target, and shoot the images we discussed, plus a few non planed shots. Then drive again, discussing the post production that those captured images will go through, and plan the next stop. … We did that all day long.

For example, this day, the first stop was in Encinitas, where we visited the art gallery of Kirk Saber. This is an Image of Kirk and Renee in the gallery. It is a multi image stitched panorama. You can click on the image to see a larger version.

We stopped, and started, all along the way. … Here we did some light painting in Venice. This is a combination of 10 long exposure images.

The gallery of my Workshop images created during this trip.

The bottom line. … It is much easier than you think. … First, you start, then, you string a bunch of words together that make sense. … Oh, it helps if you have a bunch of cool pictures to go with the words.

My friend says this about herself. … “I have an extensive background in the financial planning industry and am a novice in the event planning industry.
I am equally comfortable with both the corporate world as well as working in a creative environment.

Me? I just say that she is a friend. … A good friend who wants to work with me. … Who could ask for more?

Incredible view of the Hollywood Hills.

This is a multi-image panorama of the entirety of the Hollywood hills, Los Angeles Hills. In its full size, this image is 30 inches tall by approximately 140 inches wide. … It is a very large panorama.

It was a very clear day, and everything is crystal clear. … Please look at a larger version of the image.

It Was a Windy Day

A friend visited recently.

One day, in 2005, we went for a ride. It was a very windy day.

The friend, Jeffrey Eiche, and another friend, Barry Bunker, made this image possible. Jeffrey wanted an image something like this, and Barry, helped the wind blow.

Me? I drove. We started in San Diego, and wandered east on Interstate 8, to the Sunrise Highway. We followed that north through Julien, Santa Ysabel, and onward, up the east side of Mount Palomar.

That is where this image was shot, the east side of Mount Palomar overlooking Lake Henshaw.

The wind was blowing way to many miles per hour to wear a hat. … 😉
