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!

This new design from AMMDI is called “Lei Aloha”.  I did a quick google search of, “Lei Aloha” because I was curious to what it meant and it came back as, “Leialoha” (no space), which interprets to a Hawaiian name for babies meaning “beloved child”.  This design dropped specifically for the women.  AMMDI released this design in store already but soon to drop at their online store.  The design only comes in one colorway, but there are 4 different styles you can choose from with a few color options for each style.  Crop tees come in beige and white, crop long sleeves come in white and red, racerback tanks come in black and charcoal, and lastly the muscle tee only comes in white.  Don’t sleep on these though, because I just got word that the crop long sleeves are SUPER LIMITED!  So if you’re interested in copping this for yourself, you can find it at Pipe Dreams Surf Co. at Pearl Ridge Uptown near Ross or just wait for these to drop online real soon.

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
