Photographing Honolulu

I just took a photography class in Honolulu from Fred Larson who was a photojournalist for 30 years for the San Francisco Journal and is now freelancing and teaching classes. The class was really geared more towards people with more experience and higher-end cameras than mine so I wasn't able to do some of the special effects he taught but I did learn enough to switch my camera from "point and shoot" mode and start doing my own settings, so that was more than I expected.

We spent four nights in four different locations, taking a variety of pictures, mostly of people.

Here are a few of mine:

Moanalua Gardens
