The date has been set to the 20th. We will meet on the side of the parking lot by the trail down to the beach.
Sunrise is early!!!! It started getting light about 5:30, and the sun was at the horizon a little after 6 and completely up by about 6:15am. And it's only getting earlier. This seems to lend itself to some beautiful silhouettes, black and whites, and then once the sun comes up all kinds of colors.
If you participate in this BRING A FLASHLIGHT! It's not a hard walk down, but it's loose rocks and very hard to see. As always, you'll need to be able to carry your things down and back up. Please don't leave anything behind!
MODELS: It's highly recommended you DON'T wear your outfit down. It'd suck to rip, tear, or ruin something getting down. This will be a 1, maybe 2, outfit shoot, so you shouldn't have a lot to carry.
PHOTOGRAPHERS: Please make sure whatever you bring is packed well, or you have a tight grip on it going down. Would hate for anyone's equipment to get damaged!
ALL: It's suggested you wear tennis shoes, hiking shoes, or something completely covering your foot. Again, it's not a hard hike down, it's short. But's all loose, dry, dusty gravel and rocks.
As always, neither organizers, individuals, or anyone related to Meetup or otherwise is responsible for you, your safety, or your personal property. We're adults!
This is the "From Here to Eternity" beach, out past Hawaii Kai. There's a few drawbacks, and if you could offer up your opinion, please don't hesitate to post it here!
It's a little bit of a hike down to the beach. And while it's a short hike, it's steep & rocky.
It's frequently crowded...but usually just in the parking area. There are not a lot of people who make it down to the beach.
The beach itself is nice, and there are beautiful rocks/lava around it. But there are rocks and lava around it. Little dangerous/potentially uncomfortable.
However, all that being said, it's a beautiful beach, with some great potential. This would be more of a whimsical, beachy shoot, and NOT a sexy, bikini type shoot. Think more along the lines of selling an airy, light coverup and not a Victoria's Secret Brazilian cut bikini.
Please post your thoughts on this!
