Easter Island (Rapanui) has fascinated me ever since I was a kid. The huge and mysterious Moai have been like a beacon. In 2018 Kyrie and I managed to make the immense trip to get there. We have created a series of tutorials and behind the scenes videos of the trip.

When the idea of the trip started to grow, Olympus came on board and helped make the trip a reality. As an Olympus Visionary I took some time while on the island to create a series of videos showing some of the features of the equipment that I use. The conditions, on many levels, were difficult for creating video, but I hope that you get something from these. I know Kyrie and I had fun making them.

TUTORIAL - Live time

Live Time is a great feature of the Olympus cameras, here we use it to capture long exposures of a Moai.

TUTORIAL - live composite

Adding light to an image in real time is constantly amazing, in this video we light up a huge Moai.

 

TUTORIAL/BTS- Tongariki

This morning at Tongariki was a hoot. I rushed to get some light painting in before it go too light and you can see in this video the extremely bright environment we can get light painting images in - amazing!

TUTORIAl - bracketiong for hdr

Not a comprehensive tutorial, but a quick look behind the scenes as capture multiple images for processing later as an HDR image.

 

GEAR - Light PAinting Brushes Colour Filter Hood

I used the incredible colour filter hoods to light up one of my favourite Moai. So much fun!

GEAR - LEnses at the quarry

The Mzuiko 12-100 Pro lens is a stunning all round lens, but excels as a travel and video lens.
