Hawaii: Part 1

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, to think, this time last month I was laying in the hammock underneath the warm Maui sun. Ok, so I can't complain, it's been pretty warm here in Florida this winter too, but it doesn't match the beauty of the Hawaiian islands. I was so excited to make it over there for my first time, a life long dream I've had since I was little girl that finally came true!

I was there for half work- half vacation. I attended the fabulous Mike Colon workshop! Mike has had such an impact inspiring me as a photographer from day one, and it was exciting to hang with him and other photographers from the islands and mainland learning and growing more together through our shared loved of photography! Mike truly spoiled us with a mansion on a cliff that overlooked the ocean, a gourmet personal chef who provided 5 meals a day, massages, surf lessons, and snorkeling lessons turned touring the lava fields because of the rain. I even came THISCLOSE to whipping his butt in poker on the last night, all which you will see in my upcoming video blog about My December.

I didn't take a lot of shots of the island itself because I was also filming a lot of the scenery, but here's a few shots I could get while out on photoshoots.



These trees were ALL the rage on Maui. Ok, not really, but they did cause a lot of pain. We kept stepping on their thorns that they drop on the ground. Apparently, the story goes that missionaries brought them over ages ago to try to force the Hawaiians to wear shoes. Only problem is, they even went through our shoes and stung us!




This one is my new wallpaper on my desktop!









And here's some shots Mike got of the others and I while out on our photoshoots!

Chimping with Luke Edmonson and the other Mike, Mike Adrian!


Moi and some of the other girls! (L to R) Joanna Tano, Mike's assistant/model Rosanna, Natalie Norton, Sommer Holden, and Carla Jalbert. Mike shot this completely in the dark at like 25,000 ISO or something. Nikon's are crazy!


Walking to the next shot with Corey Ann and Joanna! I know, I'm always making funny faces!


The paparazzi! I LOVE how Luke's just chillin' plotting how to shoot his next "demon bride." LOL Inside joke!


A drowned rat pic with (L to R) Mike's wife Julie, Natalie, Luke, Gavin & Erin, Mike, and Mike Colon and I in front! We got rained out of snorkeling, and instead Mike took us to see the lava fields. FYI, that's my video camera the other Mike is holding under his jacket in case you are wondering what the heck?


And some shots I grabbed of Mike and the gang!




Here's some more shots that my new friends and I grabbed of each other!

Luke is so chocolate!


Thanks to Erin for grabbing these surf shots of moi!


WOO HOO, I stood up! And more than once!


Corey catching me making more goofy faces!


Mike Adrian brought out his strobes for us to play with. Here's Corey Ann catching me in action. The result turned out hot and I even won the photo contest with this shot! Check back for the winning picture in Day 3's photoshoot!


Again, thanks to Luke for this pic of me with the bride and groom! If you also want a custom ShootSac cover, contact my embroider at sandra18191@earthlink.net.


Mike's oh so cute little boy, Aiden. I thought it was precious how he was just chillin' on the Buddha and had to catch a shot.


In the classroom shots of Mike teaching! Luke as the supermodel!




More pics by Corey Ann!


I should get the crown for the Chimping Queen.


Just kidding, I do shoot too!


Let's play, Where's Scarlett? Or Crouching Scarlett in the Bushes.


Yes, mom, I know my posture is horrible when I shoot!




Next up, each day this week, I'll be posting the hot images from all of our different photoshoots! Stay tuned!!

This looks like a lot of fun! I was able to catch Mike and Bob on the Master your Craft tour and really learned from them. One of these days I want to go to one of these workshops too! (o:

Oh ok, just kidding Corey! The meta data said it was that lens and it was hard to remember who shot what. Thanks! I'll correct it!

No biggie at all! That's when Mike had my short lens for the lighting and I had the monster, LOL. That thing is insane!!!

I don't think anyone has a decent posture when shooting, it's awkward when my back is straight, or is it just me?

I agree, bad posture is almost a must to shoot well! lol I'm moving to Hawaii in May and reading these blogs has really really really made me excited about the prospect! Thank you so much for sharing!

Scarlett! You must have had SOOO much fun! Hawaii is beautiful...and surfing too?? wow! You rock! I'm so jealous. I LOVE the guy passing by in the truck, that makes for a fantastic shot. Great job at catching the perfect moment.

Ohhhh, I'm soo jealous! Going to Hawaii is also a dream & GOAL of mine!!! Someday...
When you shoot with the 70-200, or with any lens, do you not use a strap on the camera? I find that I need a break from holding the camera b/c it gets heavy after a few of shooting. And when I am setting up shots, it's easier for me to put the camera on my shoulder rather than trying to handle it and not drop it!
I'm glad to see that bad posture is part of shooting, it's so hard to have good posture and get the shot you want!
Great pics!!!

gee Scar, how did you ever survive this trip! What with all the bad weather, head labor, and terrible living conditions...

Wes and I are dying to go to Hawaii!!! maybe one day... the seminar looks like it was a ton of fun, I'm hoping to go to one of those "get away" seminars in the near future, it looks like it was a blast. Happy for you and Jealous all at the same time :D
