Postcard from Maui

Greetings from Maui. I’m here to shoot a wedding this weekend. All I can say is that, life is not rough. Anytime you’re just kicking back on a beach in Hawaii, life is pretty darn good.

My love affair with trees continues.

The beach here is amazing.

I just love the light out here. There’s a quality to it that’s a little unreal. It’s so warm and enveloping.

In case you don’t know, I started playing guitar a few months ago. Now, I practice everyday and take it everywhere I go. I suck, but I’m hooked. I spent a good part of the afternoon just sitting on the beach and strumming away. Talk about a little slice of heaven.

    Hi John,

    My name is Ben, and I’m a big fan of your work. I was wondering, the creative use of blur in your shots–do you shoot a lot with a T/S lens, or is this a lot of Photoshop work? Very nice effect.

    You look like a surf-country singer.

    Ben: Not much work in photoshop for the blog photos. I usually leave the heavy photoshop work for images that i’ll be printing. I do use a tilt-shit lens or sometimes a 4×5 to throw out the focus.

    Tony: I guess I’m just Jack Johnson meets Merle Haggard.
