Easter Island - Orongo There is a common misconception that Aliens were responsible for erecting the Moai on Easter Island (thanks history channel), and that the Rapa Nui people completely wiped themselves out through all manner of strange behaviour. The reality is very different. The Rapa Nui people certainly had some issues around deforestation, not that surprising on an island that is 20kms long, think about that, but got things together. This location, Orongo, is famous for the annual Birdman competition. This was a festival held on the island that helped determine who would manage resources on the island for the following year. This helped maintain the survival of the wider community. It was a mad event, google it. The reality of how the Rapa Nui People were nearly wiped out involves colonisation, disease, slavery and ultimately the usual filth the Europeans inflicted upon all first nations people. There is a strong Rapa Nui culture still on Easter Island, they still have battles with the Chilean overlords and the influx of tourism, a double edged sword, but are a proud people determined to maintain a strong tie to the past. This is a 7 shot, hand held HDR image (combined in post) from the Olympus EM1mk2. @olympus_au #olympusinspired Peace. Denis. www.denissmith.com.au #easterisland

Easter Island - Volcanic I so often wish I had a time machine. Imagine what the Rapanui people would have though of this. They were a pretty creative bunch. Olympus EM1mk2, 17mm F1.2 at F1.2, 2 second exposure. ISO 800. @olympus_au #olympusinspired #easterisland Www.denissmith.com.au

Ball of Light - Ahu Tongariki This images would have been impossible to create without the simply stunning Live Composite feature of the Olympus cameras. The story of how It came about is part of a tutorial and story coming. But it was pretty awesome to make. Olympus EM1mk2, 7-14f2.8Pro lens at F11, Live Composite Mode @olympus_au #olympusinspired #easterisland www.balloflight.com.au Peace, Denis --------------------------------------------------------------- The term Ball of Light® is a registered trademark and all images are copyright of Denis Smith.  #balloflight #theballoflight #ball_of_light #the_ball_of_light   #lpwalliance #longexposure #lightpaintiing #denissmith #denissmithphotographer #lightpaintingphotography #australia #denissmithphotography #lightjunkies #orbup #spun_ups #spunups #theballoflighttool #nightphotography_exclusive

Ball of Light - Ahu Tahai Being in the presence of these majestic Moai is so awesome. This is a relatively small one. Yet the quarry from where it was carved is about 15kms away. And it is not flat. Olympus EM1mk2, 25mm F1.2pro at F5.6 for 240seconds. The back lighting is a Klarus XT11s with custom snoot and Pala Blue (@palateth_lp )gel on light stand. The front light is a Led lenser mt10 with a universal connector and orange @lightpaintingbrushes colour filter hood. Disclaimer: I have removed by editing a boundary rope that is between the Ball of Light and the Moai. @olympus_au #olympusinspired #easterisland www.balloflight.com.au Peace, Denis --------------------------------------------------------------- The term Ball of Light® is a registered trademark and all images are copyright of Denis Smith.  #balloflight #theballoflight #ball_of_light #the_ball_of_light   #lpwalliance #longexposure #lightpaintiing #denissmith #denissmithphotographer #lightpaintingphotography #australia #denissmithphotography #lightjunkies #orbup #spun_ups #spunups #theballoflighttool #nightphotography_exclusive
