photos by Charles and myself with a Canon 6D
A few photos from the last couple months in Hawai'i. West side beaches, dessert from REAL a Gastropub, Kahana Bay after an intense but incredible short hike, pancakes from Forty Niner Restaurant, my newest attempt at photographing the Milky Way, some sparkling coconut water with pineapple infused syrup drink that the boyfriend made, that typical sunset and palm tree photo (although the sunset wasn't that impressive), North Shore, and chorizo eggs benedict with chipotle hollandaise that Charles made for breakfast.
I've been making several attempts at photographing the Milky Way in the last couple months. I walked out of the house last night and saw how clear the sky was and after my eyes adjusted to the darkness, I was able to see the Milky Way! Although faint, since there were still light pollution, being able to see the Milky Way was incredible! I ran back inside the house, grabbed my DSLR and tripod, and started snapping away. My first few shots were out of focused but I called for Charles and he helped me adjusted it. Insane. I can't wait to go to an isolated location and see it minus the light pollution! I'm sure Haleakalā can deliver when it comes to the Milky Way.
In the last couple days, I've been thinking of buying a SLR camera to shoot film. Film is amazing and after using digital for as long as I can remember, I can't wait to go back to the basics. I'm planning on getting a SLR before a trip we're going to in September. I've already planned out a post devoted entirely to film for this trip! I can't wait. And speaking of, I have a serious case of travel bug right now. I know, it's crazy because I've been traveling back and forth between here and LA but I don't consider that "traveling". I want to go somewhere new, somewhere different, somewhere unfamiliar, and photograph the entire experience (while wearing pretty dresses of course!).
