I Finally Stepped Into The Video World

Alright, so this took me a while to actually convince myself into taking up videos because, 1) I hate learning new things and 2) I hate that on top of learning something new, I’ll have to figure out a workflow from what I’m comfortable with already.  But on the other hand, I felt as if I was at a “block” with my photography and (of course there’s many many many more things for me to learn) felt at my “max” as of today.  Like I said, it took me a while to convince myself, but I thought about it and realized that I should take a break from photography (I’m not completely stopping.  I’ll just be focusing on learning everything I can with videos now.) and acquire a new skill that can benefit me in the future!  I know I said I hate learning, hate this, hate that, but I also LOVE learning new things if it’s beneficial.  I love that learning something new can open not only your mind, but also your doors of opportunity in the future.

This day me and the boo went to Lanikai beach to just relax and enjoy our day off together.  It was a windy and cold day at the beach tho so no swimming was involved and we just sat on the sand and people watched and I got to practice shooting.  Keeping this short, here’s my very first video and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.  Feel free to leave me comments and share this video if you please.

Oh and follow me on instagram: @sphotohi.  Also SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel since I’ll be posting more on there.

As the title state’s, my boo and I are working on shooting together more often because she’s getting more comfortable and getting used to posing for me in front of the camera.  Plus I recently upgraded from a Canon T1i, which I had since circa 2010, to a Canon 80D, so I was excited to finally use my new camera for a shoot.  For this shoot, it was a laid back/comfortable, regular type of outing kind of outfit.  Brand new air force 1’s on her feet, distressed denim, and a tied cropped top.  She loves putting outfits together and I thought she looked hella cute in this particular one lol so it basically was my request to shoot this one.  Definitely more shoots to come in the near future with her but in the mean time, check out the rest of her photos and just keep a look out for new posts!

Made In Hawaii – I STARTED A NEW BRAND

This day at the printing shop was the official start of production of the very first t-shirt design.  I stopped by the shop so I could document this for y’all to see what goes on behind the scenes, just in case you’ve never seen anything like it before.  My printer that I’m currently going through is a homie from high school so I know the printing is in good hands!

I’ve set this brand to officially launch on April 13th this year.  So be sure to stay up to date and follow my store’s instagram (@madeinhawaiisc) for current updates and upcoming drops.

Check out the rest of the photos and even video of what went on that day and more.  Also be sure to check out my online store to see the shirt!  Many more designs, colors, etc. will be on its way so keep a look out for those!

I wanted to change up the scenery from what the team and I normally do.  What I had in mind originally was to do something street (which I love shooting) but I had a feeling the team wanted to shoot something different lol.  I had no story line for the shoot, no theme because I couldn’t think of anything.  My mind drew blank so it was just a “normal” shoot.  During the shoot though, little bits and pieces of ideas came to mind of how some parts of the video should go so it wasn’t totally “theme-less” lol.  It turned out to being a (if I HAD to name it) nature-ish vibe…..continue reading
