Back today with another installment of our 600 On A 600 project. Today we are featuring images shot by Ariel Perez with Camera 1. Ariel is a resident of North Carolina, but decided to take the camera to Hawaii with him earlier this month and shoot some expired Polaroid type 600 film.
You can check out more work by Ariel and follow along with him online with the following links.
I focus mainly on weddings, lifestyle and fashion photography and as a creative outlet, I have been shooting instant film for a couple of years now. This was my first big project, where I was able to document a story, and this experience has definitely sparked my interest in putting together more projects.
Thanks to the Snap It/See It team for the opportunity to show others Hawaii through my eyes.
This was my first time going to Hawaii and I was excited to be able to photograph so much beauty and variety on instant film.
This adventure lasted 7 days and I was able to visit two (Oahu and Maui) of the seven populated islands.
A brief description of the images I made follow:
1. Honolulu/Waiki beach taken from Diamond Head crater
2. Honolulu/Koko Head taken from Diamond Head Crater
3. Pineapple, taken at Dole Plantation
4. Haleakala crater, altitude: 10,023 feet!
5. The Tree of Life, sculpture in Pearl Harbor
6. Wall with names of the fallen, Pearl Harbor
7. Shell gas sign in Paia (Img_100)
8. Views during various stops in “road to Hana” day trip (Palm tree)
9. Views during various stops in “road to Hana” day trip (Waves crushing onto lava rocks)
10. Views during various stops in “road to Hana” day trip (Tropical vegetation and the Pacific Ocean)
