Dancer Nathaniel Hunt

Dancer Nathaniel Hunt was in Maui for a month,  performing for Adaptations Dance Theater’s Bring It Home. Residing in New York, where he is described as a mover, an educator and a creator, some time on Maui is not a common experience. So, while here, why not get some photos for the portfolio. We met one late afternoon at the Kealia Coastal Reserve beach in north Kihei, and captured some images. The still images contained in this post can give a little glimpse of Nathaniel’s elegance and grace. For more information about Nathaniel Hunt, visit his website at: https://www.nathanieljhunt.com

Shooting Into The Sun Portrait Photography – Maui Island Portraits

Shooting into the sun portrait photography can produce stunning, standout images. But, without fill flash, all you’d get is a dark subject, and well exposed sun, or well exposed subject, and a way overexposed, aka ‘washed out,’ sun. Fill flash is artificial light, balanced in terms of temperature, ie, the color hue of the light, and ambient light luminosity. When balanced, the flash fills in enough light so the sun in the background is well exposed, while at the very same time, the subject in the foreground is also well exposed. Sometimes, the sun is muted by clouds, which can give a nice soft ambience; sometimes, the sun is bold and bright, requiring more fill flash to create the balance of light. Sometimes, the sun is above the horizon, just before setting, and sometimes, right after the sun has set makes for a softer more moody image. Either way, shooting into the sun portrait photography can yield some very pleasing results….

You can’t really do this with a cell phone, or a point and shoot camera. The flash they have built in is not powerful enough, and does not have the control necessary to make the required adjustments to balance the light just right. So, if you’re interested in this kind of portrait photography, for yourself, as an individual, or as a couple, or as a family, and you are planning on a trip to Maui, contact us. We’re available to provide you with shooting into the sun portrait photography at any one of Maui’s premier world-class beaches.

Couples Portrait Photography: Kamaole III Beach Park at Sunset

Kamaole III Beach Park at sunset can be spectacular and a great place for couples, or family, portrait photography. The park itself, located in Kihei, Maui, is one of those community gems which offers a world-class beach, with lava rock outcroppings, a child’s playground, barbecue pits, picnic tables, restrooms, showers, a stand of ironwood trees, palm trees, a large grassy expanse and even recycling trash bins.The park is an ideal setting for natural, outdoor portrait photography as the park setting presents some very nice areas and the beach, of course, especially during sunset, offers a spectacular backdrop for portrait photography.

Manas and Ruby, both medical doctors from Illinois, he completing his residency in neurology and she practicing family medicine, decided that their last day in Maui deserved some special portraits as they have had none taken since their wedding a few years ago. What better place than a world-class beach at sunset on this romantic isle of Maui!
