Hey Y’all

Happy Holidays!  Sorry for the delayed post.  I’ve been all over the place, and haven’t shot prep football in a while, hence the absence in POTW.  But here’s a change-up.  Last week or so, I had a different press conference to cover each day.  How do you make talking heads look interesting?  Here you go:

Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle speaks during a press conference Sunday, Nov. 15, 2009 at the State Capitol.  Among the topics Lingle discussed were her recent trip to China as well as the recurring issues of furlough Fridays, of which she directly addressed.  (Jamm Aquino/Honolulu Star-Bulletin).

    Personally, I like the Lingle photo best. But in the Mufi photo, my eyes went directly to that ding in the desk! And no, I’m not talking about the mayor.

    BTW, saw your shoot with Jake Shimabukuro at Nieman Marcus in this morning’s SB. He’s looking REALLY good, and I ♥ that jacket!

    Nice way to think outside the box. I really dig the 3rd photo w/ the 2 speakers.

    Weird, I knew Chris Lum-Lee back when he was in HCC’s Admin Justice program. Was wondering what that dude was up to. I like how you framed it with the descending mics.

    You look like you have a lot of fun coming up w/ interesting compositions for your shots.

    Hi Jamm …
    You were faced with a pretty difficult challenge … but, you rose to the occasison, as you usually do, and took some really great shots of inherently dull subjects (… no pun intended) … I really liked the Mufi photo … what prompted you to take a B&W shot … I focused first on our mayor … then, on the wall clock … hmmm, maybe a subliminal message there (i.e. is time running out for the rail system).


  4. Digital Flower:

    I like the last picture. It has a nice vintage film look to it.


  5. Rafa:

    … as usual, some really nice photos … my favorite was the Mufi shot … was there a reason why you decided to go B&W for this photo … my eyes immediately focused on the wall clock … as in … maybe “time” is running out on the rail system … Hope your Christmas was as enjoyable as mine.
    Mahalo!
