Hyperlapse al tramonto: in aereo con Matthew Vandeputte

Matthew Vandeputte gira il primo tramonto in hyperlapse da un aereo.

I raggi di sole che fendono gli orizzonti di nuvole, offrono l'elettrizzante sensazione di trovarsi un po' più vicini alle nostre coordinate 'paradisiache, qualcuno preferisce pensare a Dio, soprattutto quando il punto di vista 'in volo' è nitido come in questo caso.

Di sicuro questa breve ripresa del tramonto in hyperlapse, effettuata da Matthew Vandeputte in volo sopra le nuvole, di ritorno dall'aeroporto australiano di Coolangata a Sydney, ha richiesto la complicità di un finestrino pulito e di un pizzico di fortuna, insieme alla sua Canon 5D MkIII, con obiettivo Canon 24-105L, vasta gamma focale e stabilizzazione incorporata, pronti ad entrare in funzione, con una batteria nuova e di due schede di memoria vuote.

L'inclinazione ottimale dell'aereo, allineato con la prospettiva del finestrino (una bella fortuna), ha fatto il resto, consentendogli di effettuare la ripresa del tramonto con un'invidiabile prospettiva, e tutta l'emozione condivisa insieme al racconto dei fatti.

World's first sunset hyperlapse from an airplane

Last week I was about to fly back from Coolangata airport (Gold Coast, Australia) to Sydney when I noticed the sun was about to set with some great cloud coverage. Knowing that I'd have a big chance of shooting some great stills, I loaded up my Canon 5D MkIII with a fresh battery and two empty memory cards, ready to shoot. Lens of choice was the Canon 24-105L, great focal range and incredibly useful built in stabilisation.

During take-off I could see beautiful 'God rays' forming (sunlight shooting through the clouds, creating golden rays of light) and got very excited! A few minutes later, I ended up with this photo. (https://bit.ly/1dooyu8) Have a look at the full gallery of stills here: https://bit.ly/1ct0gRV

This was only the beginning.

20 minutes later, the clouds were looking great from 30000 feet up in the air, and I decided to try out some hyperlapse sequences by setting my camera to Drive-mode, and shooting continuous stills. What I was able to shoot next was unique, and incredibly exciting to capture.

I had just shot a number of cloud sequences where you can actually see the light changing gradually, as the sun was getting closer and closer towards the edge of the clouds at the horizon, when the plane angled itself towards the setting sun. Lucky me! Right when the climax was about to happen, I was able to compose a frame where the planes wing wasn't visible, and I had a clear line of sight of the sun going down.

Holding the camera very, very still, controlling my breathing and annoying everyone around me with my fast paced shutter firing off dozens of shots, I knew I was in the process of capturing a world's first!

Without bothering you further with text, enjoy this unique video.
