Sand Island Beach & Bike Shoot

It's summer time, let's do a beach shoot.

There's also a request to do a shoot with motorcycles. We did one like this last year at Sand Island. Potluck lunch / snacks. I'm bringing a case of bottled water and some kind of main dish. Please leave a comment with what you're bringing. I think we will need tents for this meetup since there isn't much cover at Sand Island. We'll meet in the parking lot that's in the middle of the beach area. The Google map below should show the path from the park entrance to our meeting spot. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/21.3032836,-157.8713536/21.3019499,-157.8780681/@21.3021399,-157.8763734,689m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m4!4m3!1m0!1m0!3e0

    Aloha all! What great pictures from everyone, thank you! Wanted to get the Dropbox link out, so you could start sharing pictures. This is the link:

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ylhaig99v78yq0w/AABAwdbhIwxerV8C4ZlkXRR9a

    You will need to set up a Dropbox account if you don't already have one, but it's very simple to do, there are directions on the site (www.dropbox.com).

    When you upload your pictures, please make a folder with your name only. This link is being shared with quite a few people, so everyone needs to know how to get in touch with everyone else.

    The folder will be active for 1 month, please have your pictures posted within the next two weeks. They do not have to be finished pictures, raw images are fine.

    When communicating with each other (models requesting images, etc.), DO NOT post a comment here! Send a private message to the member.

    (continued below...)

      June 29

    • madmarv

      Tien, PM me and I'll send you an invite to join the shared folder. That link Debra posted is for read-only access.

      June 29

  • debra

    We have had issues in the past of other images being uploaded to the folder. THEY WILL BE DELETED IF THEY ARE NOT FROM THIS SHOOT. THIS IS NOT A PRIVATE FOLDER, DO NOT TREAT IT AS SUCH.

    If you have any questions, please email me at [masked], do not post a comment here.

    Thanks again to everyone!

    There are a few pictures here that are top notch. The guy on the Ducati is iconic. It was shot with a low camera angle with great exposure. I would have darkened the belly though. The other one that was hands down "professional quality" was the 4 picture collage of the girl in green bikini. Exposure, balance, poses, and composition was flawless.

    June 24

    • Steven Y.

      Ha! I did the 4 picture thing!

      June 24

  • Jarrett

    I thought I heard something that there is going to be a drop box where photographers may give the models copies of their photos?

    Hi Friends! I apologize but please mark me down as "tentative" for this meetup. :( I got a last minute appointment with this exclusive tattoo artist and am getting work done tonight. That means I can only come if I'm not in too much pain tmrw/if skin is too raw. TBD. Good news? I'll look even sexier in our NEXT meetup shoot ;)

    June 20

  • Rich

    I'll be there in the morning at 9:00 or at sunset if decided that we stay until then. Can model if needed. But plan to shoot. Will bring a side

    2 · June 20

  • Erick

    I'm a photographer. I have a shoot in the morning so I'll come around 1:00. I'll bring some kind of afternoon snack.

    June 20

  • Jeff M.

    Will come as photog and have invited 2 models. I'm still waiting for their response. I will also bring a side dish. Request to Models: If you have and can bring dark sunglasses, please do. It's not meant to be worn all the time, but would be helpful in scenes where photogs may want to try and overcome daylight using flash heads in full power. You don't have to go home blind :)

    I invited male models. Not sure ok If they can attend.:-)

    I know there has been a lot of concern mentioned about not having enough models... But I don't know that anyone has tallied up how many bikes are going to be there? If we only have one bike, an excess of models may not be of concern. Could we get a count of people who are for sure bringing bikes?

    June 17

    • Daniel S.

      Bikinis on bikes!!!!
