Hawaii was beautiful and absolutely breathtaking in every way, and really is the perfect spot to unwind. I will say, however, that shooting blog pics proved to be exceptionally challenging. Let's discuss all the weather related shooting challenges, shall we?
Wind: Oahu was dealing with gale force winds during my stay, and while it doesn't seem like the biggest problem ever- my hair was ALL OVER THE PLACE. My hair was constantly in my face- even when putting it up. Those cute and effortless blog photos look best with a light breeze... not storm winds.
Rain: It's monsoon season! A little rain never hurt anybody, but it could damage your camera. I had to sneak in shoots between sun breaks.
Clouds: YES! So usually I love shooting in cloudy weather. That way, I don't have to deal with the sun's angles and glares. Unfortunately, it was just too dark most of the time in Hawaii. So beautiful color-changing sunsets when I was on the island. Flash usually corrected the photo darkness, but aside from the palm trees, you could barely tell where I was.
Just keep these elements in mind when shooting in tropical environments!
