Fun at Hawaii Theatre

November 8th, 2010

Today I had the privilege of photographing renowned Hawaii comedians Augie T. and Frank DeLima for our Features desk.  Loads of fun on the corner of Pauahi and Bethel Street this morning!

Comedians Augie T., left, and Frank DeLima pose for a portrait on Monday, November 8, 2010 outside the Hawaii Theatre in downtown Honolulu. Augie T. and Frank DeLima are set to take the stage together for the upcoming "Kings of Portuguese Comedy" show on November 12, 2010. (Jamm Aquino/Honolulu Star-Advertiser).

Since I was pressed for time, it was a simple, two speedlite setup with pocketwizards and two small banks.  Voila!

Canon EOS 1D Mark IIN, EF 16-35 f2.8L at 19mm, Exposure mode: Manual, 1/200 at f11, ISO 160, Daylight whitebalance.

It was so much fun photographing these two charismatic gentlemen that at the end, I had to get in on the fun in front of the lens also!

Great start to a Monday–with a few laughs and a good time!

    Great shots Jamm. Funny how I would previously drive past the theater and never noticed how clean it looks. Looks like the sunlight angle made it clean with less shadows.

    Kent, a bank is a softbox, and I used two small, 24 inch rectangles.

    I believe your top caption has Augie & Frank flipped… isn’t Frank on the left? Or is the caption meant for the photo below?
