Runa’s Beach Day

Runa was visiting from Japan and got in contact with a fellow photographer, he was kind enough to invite me along and I got some killer shots out of it.  The timing was pretty rough since it was right around lunch.   The light ends up being the harshest at this time of the day and it was no exception for this shoot.   Runa powered through that bright sun and so did we, much to my delight the photos turned out better than I could have expected.   I wish there were more time with her, but that wouldn’t happen since we caught her at the end of her stay in Hawaii.

 

Anime Matsuri Saturday 2015

Our Saturday began a little after lunch. Mrs. CatParty had big plans to revamp her Final Fantasy cosplay since the last convention, but her life was completely occupied by the cats so she wasn’t able to upgrade anything.  Lucky for her, the cats added a ton of fur to her cape.    more “Anime Matsuri Saturday 2015”

Fuji XT1 at the Beach

A lot of my time has been spent trying to catch up with editing, unfortunately that means I don’t get to have as much fun shoots as I would like.  The positive side of all this is that I can afford this Fuji. more “Fuji XT1 at the Beach”

Waialua Bon Dance

Bon dance season has been in full swing for a while, it lasts about 3 months in Hawaii. Waialua’s bon dance is on the smaller side and really hidden away from the main streets.  Anyone with a nice car would have difficulty getting to the event, even trucks don’t make it out safe.  My parent’s truck suffered a flat tire from a giant rock while parking and we had to do some late night tire repair when the bon dance finished. more “Waialua Bon Dance”

CatParty Walks: Mari

This latest walk was a real change of pace.  Normally when we do these walks, I generally bring both a digital and film camera to play around with.  This shoot had an extra element of filming video added.  My friend Boo helped me  pick up a GoPro.  The world of video is entirely new to me, so bear with me on these early videos until I get a bit more comfortable with the whole process.
