Hawaiian Portrait Shoot with Antonio

Putting the camera down for a long period is difficult for me at the best of times, let along when I’m in Hawaii. I’m consistently visually inspired in the Aloha State. It’s something about all of those bold green and blue hues that my eyes find just so pleasing.

When I visited back in April, I took 3 weeks off work which is pretty much unheard of for me. The last time I took time off from work was in Hawaii 2 years earlier… and it was for maybe 5 days at best before I got bored and restless.

This year, I dusted off the cameras for one shoot in Hawaii. This one. An hour spent floating around in the warm Pacific Ocean at blue hour during the cloudiest week I’d ever experienced in O’ahu.
