Flight Out and Day 1 of Japan!!!

What’s up guys! This is officially the start of the Japan trip the girlfriend and I took in the beginning of October. In this video I showed our flight from Honolulu to Japan and what we ended up doing on our first official day there. I can’t tell you how much this video got me in my feels about Japan while I was creating it! Japan is just an amazing place! If you haven’t visited there yet, IT’S A MUST, or if you have already been there, then you already know why I’m in my feels lol.

Check out what we did and I can promise you that more videos from the trip are in the works and coming soon!  You can also peep the photos and read about the other things we did while in Japan.  There might not be too much photos this time, but that’s because I took a majority of video clips to sharpen my video skills even further.

I’ll also be moving travel content from the journal into it’s own section which will be labeled, “Travel”.  So look out for that!

Be sure to head over to my YouTube channel and LIKE and SUBSCRIBE my videos, please and thank you!  It would mean a lot and don’t be shy in the comment section.  I love reading and replying to everybody!

Flight Out To Japan

Dear journal,

I haven’t spoken to you in a while!  This is the day we flew out to Japan.  I didn’t expect the day to be loooooooooooong (or at least I thought it was long lol) because the girlfriend explained that it would be a “short” 8 – 9 hour flight.  So I thought, “ok this is gonna be easy”, but NO!  To me it felt long but maybe that’s because we had a lay over in Tokyo lol.  Anyways it was worth it because this country is B, O, M, B, BOMB!  Everything is so organized here and everyone is respectful, everything’s so tech-savvy, and it’s just a chill vibe all over.  Even the food here doesn’t disappoint! One of my highlights of this night was my dinner because 711 is right down stairs from my hotel and I saw numerous videos on YouTube of people having feasts off of 711 food that they won’t serve anywhere else in the world (or at least I haven’t seen or experienced it yet)!  This night, I ended the night with editing, and having dinner from 711 which consisted of salted rice onigiri and chicken skewers.  They don’t joke around with their food here.  It’s 100% legit!  I was so satisfied with my dinner that I slept like a baby after.  All I know is that I can’t go to a 711 back in Hawaii and grab “dinner” and say I was satisfied with what I ate lol.

Beach Day!!!!

Had a beach day with the girlfriend and a few of the homies this past weekend.  Brought them back to the same beach @shaz_v and I did the last video together.  Last time the 2 of us went, we weren’t prepared because all I had in mind was to shoot a video at the time and boy did I regret it!  It was so hot that day that all I could think about was swimming, but all I brought were the clothes I was wearing and my camera.  This time we planned it out and brought a tent, drinks, food, and everything else anyone would bring to the beach to have a good time!  This took place on the North Shore of Oahu.  To be honest with you, I have no idea what the name of this beach is, but it isn’t as busy as most beaches here on the island and it stretched pretty far, so there literally was all the space in the world at this spot.  No more searching almost half the beach for a spot to kick it lol.  We stayed all the way til sunset, and I gotta say, this day was a good day.

Spontaneous Beach Day With The Girlfriend

For those who don’t already know, yes this is my gorgeous girlfriend, Shaz lol.  This was a spontaneous beach day, on a Sunday afternoon.  It was so hot that day and we were both off (we rarely get the same days off), so it was her idea to head to the beach and I figured might as well make use of the day and shoot a video and photos too to see where I’m stand ever since I jumped into the video side of things!  We went down to some beach  at the North Shore.  I don’t know the name of it but it was one of those beaches that was literally on the side of the highway (if you ever been down that side, and I know many locals have, but if you’re not from here, there are many beaches you can visit down at the north shore).  Before that we took a stroll through Haleiwa (a MUST SEE place if you’re ever visiting Oahu) to play tourist a bit and grab some food for the beach.  Let me tell you though, because this was a spontaneous trip, we were definitely NOT prepared! lol.  We arrived there around 430ish and the sun hadn’t gone down enough to where the beach is bearable, so we regretted not bringing enough drinks and a tent lol.  So we set up our beach blanket on the sand and just endured the sun and enjoyed our Sunday.  I have to admit though, it was relaxing minus the hot sun and sweating so much (because I didn’t bring swim shorts on the count that I wasn’t planning to swim but boy did I regret that), plus I shot whatever I could before I was over everything because of the heat lol.  Anyways, if you wanna see the rest of the photos and the video that was taken that day, click on the photo above!

New design available at the online shop! NYTP V1 comes in black/white ink and olive/khaki ink. To see the tee more in detail, check it out here. I haven’t posted in a while too so here’s a collab I did with the homies @jcfilmshi & @__________j3sslow. Jess had asked me to shoot his car since he was about to make a move to vegas and I needed some people to model my new shirts. So I thought, why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone? My shooting focused more the brand side of the photos + video, while I hit up JC to actually focus on filming the car since that’s his bread and butter. Plus I needed JC to be in my video for a few parts to make sense. Check out the rest of the feature here or click on the photo above!

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.

We’re Working On Shooting Together More Often

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!
