We here at HSW frequently share the short Nature Notes videos from Yosemite (including the great “Moonbows” and “Horsetail Fall” videos) produced by talented photographer and videographer Steve Bumgardner.
Using “thousands of photos and hours of footage” (and gear such as a jib crane and sliders), Steve and his crew have now produced the short film “One Day in Yosemite”, which creates a dynamically visual window that affords glimpses into an action-packed summer day in Yosemite.

On Tuesday, June 26, 2012 thirty filmmakers set out on this ambitious mission. What had started as a casual Twitter conversation a few months before was now finally happening. We had scattered ourselves throughout the park, from the Mariposa Grove to Tuolumne Meadows and spaces in between (map). About half of us could be found in and around Yosemite Valley: at Glacier Point, climbing Half Dome, at the top of Yosemite Falls, and even in the kitchen of the Ahwahnee Hotel (map). At over 1200 square miles, there were vast swaths of the park that we didn’t cover. That’s because our focus wasn’t the empty wilderness, but the popular roadside attractions that the vast majority of Yosemite visitors experience.[/blockquote]
Steve also has behind the scenes videos on some of his more popular Nature Notes. We recommend taking a look at the behind the scenes for the Moonbow, as you will learn a vast amount of knowledge about what goes into producing just one of these videos!
Speaking of learning and Yosemite, our Yosemite in Spring photography workshop is just around the corner and there are only a few spots left for this flagship workshop. Come with us to discover the premier season for photographers in Yosemite Valley. With over a dozen waterfalls pouring over the towering cliffs of the valley’s rim, dropping thousands of feet in sheer free-falls, staircased steps or series of cascades, this is a workshop you don’t want to miss. Register today before the last spot is taken!
