Island in the Sun: Malaekahana Beach

2012-04-23 2

On the lucky occasion that I get to make the trip down to the other side of the island, Malaekahana Beach is one of my favorite destinations. Refreshing water, warm sand, and the wind in your hair. What more could you ask for?

This is probably one of the windier beaches on the island of Oahu, which makes this place a great spot for kite surfing and wind surfing (both of which my friends do)! The majority of the time that I come here, it’s to stay for a few days to camp. Staying up late, going crabbing, waking up early with the beach as our backyard, time for tanning, and time for surfing; it’s the good life.

Being beach and lomo junkies, my friend @summsumm decided it was up to us to explore the beach and have our own little photo shoot. Malaekahana has a wide variety of places to take photos of; first and foremost is the beautiful shoreline. Perfect for laying out in the sun for hours, but don’t forget the sunscreen!

It’s not uncommon to meet some new friends on the sand too! :)

Next we have the forest-y area! A fun place for kids to play games and run around in. There’s also a rope swing somewhere close to the beach too!

(It’s quite windy!)

To get to the next place, you’ll have to walk all the way across the beach towards the rocky area. Don’t forget to take pictures on the way there too! Quite unlike the beach, there’s a lot of growth here. A small stream flows between two banks, there’s stepping stones in the middle. Such an interesting place is bound to be the backdrop of many photos!

And of course, we can’t forget the camping area! We stayed at a place called Tutu’s Hale, right on the beach. You’ve got a place for the bonfire, bunk beds and mattresses, a kitchen, and most importantly, a bathroom!

You won’t want to forget your analogue goodies when you come out here, you’ll probably want to bring more than one camera and multiple rolls of film too!

Doesn’t that sound amazing? I’m sure you’re ready to pack up your bags, book a flight to Hawaii, and reserve a spot at Tutu’s Hale by now. Don’t hesitate, just do it and we’ll be waiting for you at the beach!

     Inspiring and Daring Women in Contemporary Photography (Part I)

    We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
