Happy New Years from all of us
at Hawaiianpix Photography!!
As you hang up that new calendar for the coming year do you ask yourself, "Where did the last year go?" Doesn't it seem like every year just zooms by faster than the last one?
What can you do about it?
Most of us make New Years Resolutions and hope to have an even better year than the one before. Let's face it though, how many of us set that resolution bar just a little too high and then give up on them by Valentine's Day.
Yeah, us too.............
What resolutions will you make for yourself this year?
Or will you be like Andrea aka Andy's mom who just refuses to make resolutions at 81 years of age?
We all know those common, top resolutions:
Lose weight, Get in Shape, Get a better job, Make more money..... all noble goals but sometimes pretty hard to accomplish in 12 short months.

Inspiring and intimidating at the same time right?
All of us at Hawaiianpix of course have some goals for the coming year.
But really our number one resolution is to keep FOCUSED on what is most important. And as a photography company we understand focus better than most.

If your goal is the same as ours what better way to focus on what's important in life than to have your portraits taken with your loved ones? We have more fun in an hour at the beach than some people have all year PLUS you get amazing images to remember and gaze upon to reflect on what's really important in this hectic, crazy world!
|The FOCUS is on YOU|
So an easy resolution or goal would be to capture some memories and schedule a session with us!
#1 Resolution = Call Andrea "Andy" at 808-387-0869 to schedule a session
|Is it REALLY that EASY? YES it IS!|
If you want to take great photos of your own, there are some easy resolutions you can make for yourself to reach that goal:
1- Get to know your camera. Read that manual. Take a class. Jerry offers at least two classes a year at UH Manoa outreach where you can learn your camera and lighting techniques. Watch for those class announcements.
2- Study your favorite photographers and their photos. What do you like about them? What images stick with you and are the most memorable?
3- Share your photos. Social media is great for this whether you are on facebook or want to start a blog or instagram account. When you share your photos you get feedback and your skills and critical eye will improve.
4- See the light and Feel the light. Learn to play with the light and use proper lighting techniques that make your photos become treasures.
5- Go OUT and find inspiration. If you live in Hawaii we are surrounded by so many beautiful places and spaces that will get your creative juices going. Getting moving = Getting inspired.
Remember that taking better photos doesn't necessarily mean always buying the newest, best gear ( Although all of us here love our camera equipment more than most).
It is the PHOTOGRAPHER that takes good photos - not the camera!!!
#2 Resolution - Learn or practice one photography related skill every day
So for 2014 whatever your goal, whatever your resolution, remember to FOCUS on what is most important each and every day.
You may be blessed with another day BUT you never get another TODAY so make each one count!
Happy New Years!!!!
