Island in the Sun: Makai Pier

On a sunny day, this is one of the prettiest beaches to take photos at! Makai Pier is easy to spot from the road and always a fun place to waste the day away.

Formally known as the home to Makai Ocean Engineering, this research pier offers a variety of activities; fishing, snorkeling, swimming, and diving. During the summer, it is great for swimming, just watch out for the fishing lines! If you’re lucky, you might see a turtle too.

However, one of my favorite spots is directly under the pier. It’s a great setting for many different types of photos. I took some photos for my boyfriend and our friend for their music portfolios.

Every time I’ve gone there, I’ve been lucky to have picked very sunny days. It’s amazing how beautiful it is out here!

Now that I think about it, it was almost too bright! Friendly reminder: try to bring a camera with a changeable ISO!

The next time I go, I’m planning to go out snorkeling and bring back some photos with my LC-Wide and Krab!

(Aloha!)

    On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing

    There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Photo Stories: Aboard the Southwest Chief by grazie

    Thanksgiving is marked by families gathering to share a hearty meal and simply enjoy being around one another. More than a year ago, grazie had to spend the holiday on the Amtrak's Southwest Chief en route to Chicago. She might have been away from her own family on such an important day, but grazie was fortunate to find good company with her fellow travelers.

    Portraits, Lights, Instant Photos, and Weird Faces

    In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.
