8 Days in Hawaii | Ian MacDonald

We recently returned from a family vacation to Hawaii, specifically to the island of Oahu.  It was an amazing week (plus a day) of sun, shared experiences with the family and of course, photography. Like many other photographers, family vacations for me have always been a struggle between sharing the trip with my family, but also wanting to be in the right place, at the right time, with the right gear, to capture a great image.   Planning for this trip was helped greatly by a series David Hobby and Andrew Tomasino have on Lynda.com called The Traveling Photographer. In that series, David talks about striking the right balance between being a photographer and  being a husband and father. I’ll tell you right now this is not always the easiest thing to do. Creative people have a desire to…. well…. create.  The true definition of photography is to write with light, and the best light often comes right when it would make sense to schedule and plan a family activity…..
