Met up with Kitten on a beach without really thinking of what the area would have for lighting at night. It turned out to be pitch black and pretty damn creepy. Luckily we didn’t run into anything and I had my flash. In really dark spots like this, it helps to have a flash light so your camera can focus a lot easier. Using an off camera speedlite is still a bit foreign to me if the light is heading straight for the subject. It took a while to find a groove with the flash and where to set it, I’m really trying to focus on speeding up how long this adjustment period takes. Due to the sketchy feels and pitch black scenes, I liked the hard shadows coming across everything.
Caught up in the moment of taking some cool photos in a new spot, I forgot to put sunblock on. more “Suns out Buns out”
I managed to get a small gig shooting some products for a local skate brand. All Day I Dream About Pizza had a few shirts and pins to display. This was the first time I got to shoot products for someone and the general theme kind of lined up with how I normally shoot anyway. more “All Day I Dream About Pizza”

Picked up a new lens for my Fuji XT1, in the hopes that this can tide me over until I can afford some of the sweet sweet Fujinon prime lenses on my wishlist. more “Rokinon 12mm F2.0 Lens at Waikiki Beach”
