Chasing the Sun with Lori and David
03.05.2015

It had been cloudy and rainy the past couple days leading to the photoshoot.  They were worried that we might have to postpone to another day to get their pictures taken.  We started out in Magic Island in Ala Moana for action and running shots, and rushed to Kakaako Water Front Park to capture the evening sky.  Luckily the weather gods graced us with a colorful sunset to complement the couple's radiant smile and energy.  This was just the first of their two-part #engagement shoot.  Stay tuned for more.

Congratulations, David and Lori!

Happy Birthday, CJ!

He had been reluctant to look at me directly during the family photoshoot because of maybe the strong winds, the bright clouds, or that I failed to somehow warm up to him.  Luckily, mom and dad are great at interacting with him to get him excited about the taking pictures.

But on our way back to our cars after the shoot and as his dad helped him put on his shoes, he looked at me with the cutest smile, leaned over on his dad's shoulders, and said "Cheese!"

I was so happy that I still had my camera on hand and did not pack it yet.

Today I learned about Frequency Separation in Photoshop. It's an amazing retouching technique to remove blotchiness of the skin without taking away it's texture. The "after" image still looks "photoshoppy", so it appears I still have more practicing to do. I don't like to change how a person looks in my photos, but I do like this tool to reduce some distracting features of a person's face. Would it offend you if I did this to your photo? Please let me know.

Thanks to Aaron Nace from YouTube's Phlearn for this awesome and very useful tutorial.
