You never know what you'll get

A few weeks ago I got a request to shoot photos for a model from the Puna district.  She was planning to be in Waikoloa for a few days and agreed that we should get together to create some ocean side images. We really didn't have much of a plan, all she really wanted was to be on the sand and in the water.  There are times when having a plan makes life so much easier but then there are other times when the thrill of success is defined by the mystery.

We agreed to meet at one of my favorite plans to shoot beach scenes - Beach 69.  She arrived and we trotted down to the waters edge to see what we could see.  After a few test shots for lighting and color we started.  The sun was rapidly moving towards what became a spectacular sunset but more on that in another post.  After several poses and lots of shots we moved her into the water and that's when the magic started.  She is a natural poser and a lovely person to work with. After the sun set we reviewed what I'd been able to capture and we said Aloha.

Sometimes life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you'll get.
