Doing work with Honolulu’s Standard Commercial this week taking some abstract’y candid business shots.
My dad has a big ol motor boat and took us for an amazing ride today. We cruised around in front of Waikiki and enjoyed the view. It was unfortunately a little too windy to swim today.
I brought my drone but forgot to charge the batteries. Ugh. But got some photos with the Canon 5d.
I was at Kahala Beach park flying my drone around and spotted this guy spear fishing. I always wished I knew a SINGLE thing about fishing. Growing up in Hawaii that is pretty embarrassing. Hopefully at 38 years old its not too late for me to learn.
At the Hawaii State Capitol building toward the end of the day on a Thursday. Taken with a Canon 5d and 24-70L lens. I really like the wavy white post reflections off the shiny floor.
The man in the photo turned to look at me soon after this shot. I ran away to the next floor above. A few minutes later he appeared looking for me. I expected the standard “delete that photo you took of me”. But he actually just wanted a copy. Thanks!
Checked out Downtown Honolulu’s Livestock Tavern and took a few photos. Beautiful restaurant and even better food. We had the steak, lobster roll, crab cakes, burger and lamb.
I loved the lighting, a soft white light reflecting off the buildings across the street was perfect. Also the beautiful red bricks always a reminder that you’re in Chinatown.
From thorns to flowers the Bougainvillea plant covers both ends of the spectrum. Taken at Iolani Palace in Honolulu with a Canon 5d and 24-70mm L lens.
Bougainvillea was the only thing that would grow at my house when I was a kid. I always had to trim the plants and repeatedly tore apart my hands on the thorns. I hated it. Only now, 30 years later can I appreciate this beautiful plant.
Diamond Head to Downtown Honolulu from my Mavic 2 pro. This was up about 1300 feet above Kahala beach park. The remote started getting laggy at this distance but i managed to snap this photo. Its so cool seeing these angles that you could previously only capture from a helicopter.
Flew the drone around Iolani Palace for a few mins before it was attacked by 30+ aggressive birds and I ran away. Heres a shot of the iconic Hawaiian flag flying high above the front of the palace.
I always try to take photos from odd or different angles. My Mavic 2 pro drone helps out a lot with that.
