Aloha! I've been MIA from the blog for awhile, it's nice to be back!
Over the last couple of months, I've been doing a lot of shooting and trying to expand my portfolio. Unfortunately, my attendance at the weekly North Shore Country Market on Saturday morning has been the fatality. NSCM (Saturday's 8:00-2:00 at Sunset Beach Elementary) is an awesome market and the people there are amazing - unfortunately, with my DoE responsibilities, I need to find some time to get out and shoot.
Anyway, here are some "Ocean Scapes" that I've been shooting lately. I love the power of the water and the amazingly saturated beauty that is Hawaii. I'll try to update more blog posts with the shots/work I've been doing lately. So much fun had and to be had. Spread Aloha!!!
This is a 90 second exposure of Waimea Bay just at the break of dawn. The waves were firing on this day (about 15-20 feet) and I slowed down the shutter to give the Bay that 'soupy' look. I titled this image "BaySoup".
Here is an image from one of my favorite spots on Oahu's North Shore. I love to get out to this secluded and secret area to relax and catch the beauty. This image had a .6 second shutter speed to allow me to capture the action in the water. I titled this photo "Secrets".
Living on the North Shore of Oahu, I don't get to see many sunrises straight off the ocean. However, I braved the clock and awoke early one morning to catch a sunrise at Sandy's Beach on the southeast part of Oahu. I love the simpleness of this photo and the interesting colors on the sand. I titled this image "Sandy's Sunrise".
Finally, this is an image that I took last August of a sunset at Waimea Bay. My cousin Kyle and his newlywed Morgan - honeymooning from Ohio - accompanied me to this spot. The clouds were amazing, the Bay was beautiful, the company was fantastic. I think I may like this image more for the memories than how it turned out. This image is titled "BayView".
