Beautiful Hawaii - Aerial & Macro

A totally new kind of video for me - I hope you LIKE it!

The video and stills for this video were all taken in beautiful Oahu Island. I got the idea for this concept some time ago - it occurred to me that a fabulously detailed Macro photograph can almost become an abstract when you focus on the small details rather than the whole. The same is true when you see 'the whole' from a birds eye view - landscapes look foreign and things become abstracted.

I thought that pairing these two could tell an interesting story - especially as the super high resolution from the Hasselblad X1D and 120mm macro lens allow me to add movement and crop heavily into the images after taking them.

I have added some full res X1D files from this trip up at the X1D page at my website,
