Spirit of Hawaii
September 30 - October 2, 2012
Join me, David Lenhert, for a photographic journey to one of the most beautiful places on Earth, the garden isle of Kauai, Hawaii! This intimate hands-on guided workshop (limited to only 6 participants) will provide plenty of personal instruction and opportunity to capture the best of Kauai’s extraordinary scenery.
Although we will be based out of Princeville on the north shore of Kauai, strategically located near the famed Na Pali coast, several beach parks, Hanalei Bay & taro fields, we will have opportunity to explore the forests and waterfalls of inland Kauai, as well as, the west side of the island where we will capture colorful images of the back side of the Na’Pali cliffs and peer into Waimea Canyon (the Grand Canyon of the Pacific).
For early risers, we will meet Monday and Tuesday before sunrise to capture the first sweet light of the day. As it frequently rains on the north shore of Kauai, there may be opportunity to capture rainbows as well. During the day, we will develop our images in Adobe Photoshop, capture & practice HDR processing, and create panoramic scenes. You will have time to explore the island on your own before reconvening in the late afternoon for sessions on photographing sunsets, low-light and night photography.
We will meet together Sunday afternoon in Princeville for orientation followed by an evening shoot on nearby Anini Beach. Emphasis will be placed on being on-location each dawn and sunset. Will have a full moon the first evening, so we may be able to capture some creative night shots as well.
List of planned locations:
Hanalei Valley Taro Fields
Na’Pali Coast State Park
Lihue-Koloa Forest Reserve
Queens Bath (if there’s time & depending on tidal activity. Requires short moderate hike)
Wailua Falls (if there’s time)
We can suggest flights and assist you in finding affordable accommodations and car rentals on the island. We can also help you prepare your equipment list.
