Oahu Photography Tours and Tips

Oahu Photography Tours and Tips

The postcard industry in beautiful Hawaii thrives thanks to countless spectacular landscapes—natural and cultural—but too often what you see isn’t what shows up on your photos. Here are some tips and strategies to improve your photos of the island of Oahu.

Oahu Photo Tours

One surefire way to up the quality of the photos you take during your vacation is to join a Hawaii photo tour. A local tour guide can take you to beautiful locations while offering photography tips and tricks for taking the best photos, including where to get the best angle to capture the natural beauty and when to arrive for the best lighting. Opt for a sunrise or sunset tour to take advantage of the island’s excellent “Golden Hour” light. A full-day tour around Oahu means you’ll come home with great shots of all the top attractions, including Waikiki, the North Shore, Hanauma Bay, and Pearl Harbor.

How to Take Great Photos on Oahu

  • Be prepared to wake up early and stay out late; Hawaii is famous for its amazing sunrises and beautiful sunsets—times when the light is at its best for photos.

  • Play with your shutter speed—fast for capturing surfers as they catch a wave on the North Shore or slow to add a dream-like quality to the flowing waters of a beach break or waterfall.

  • Fill the frame. Whether you’re shooting your bowl of poke or a Hawaiian palm tree, experiment with getting closer to your subject.

  • Explore the streets of Honolulu to practice composition techniques, such as the rule of thirds and leading lines, in an urban environment.

  • Unless you’re shooting a sunset, you generally don’t want to shoot into the sun. Position yourself so it’s over your shoulder or to your side.
