Photography Tour

So today I spent the day with Alex of Oahu photography tours. I took the private All Day tour. Since I live here and not staying in Waikiki I met him at the Kahala Mall at 5:50 am. From there we headed East and began a wonderful adventure around the island. We stopped at places I had never been to before including the amazing ruins of a summer palace that many of the locals I work with didn't know existed. He is quite knowledgeable with the camera and has a great eye for framing an image. I got to try out some filters that I haven't used yet and got some photos I really love.

If you want a different tour that will take you off the beaten path and a guide that will help you get the best shots of your vacation no matter what your skill level, check out Oahu Photography Tours.

Here's a link to some of my shots today.

Working on a full review but too tired to put together coherent thoughts so I'll post a link when I'm done.

I just wanted to add that you don't have to be a photography nut like me to enjoy this tour. He does Sunrise, Sunset, and all day tours. He will do private tours or group tours. He also offers moonlight tours on the nights where there is a full moon.

He studies puts a lot of thought into when to be at certain locations to ensure you get the most out of the light and your location.

These are really fantastic pictures. I am intrigued by so many different and unique scenes. The colors are great; you didn't off the deep end on HDR like so many want to do. Tell me and show me more!
