Pictures of playa love..

Postby junglesmacks » Thu Jan 06, 2011 7:21 am

A good photographer friend of mine in Hawaii did a pictorial set of capturing playa love so I thought I'd share. He has such an incredible way of capturing the lighting in all of his work, too. You should see his wedding pics..

Go ahead if ya like and post your pics of playa love, whether it be with an inanimate object, space alien, or even your big toe.

those pictures are great...I'm amazed at his dedication to getting those awesome shots in a pretty tough environment for his gear.

And his makeshift carrier bike looks great too!!

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Beautiful pictures.
Very expressive, creative, perfect exposure and Focus.
You captured the challenging environment,
and the emotion, and the soul of the people and their BM experience.
Through your pictures I can experience the magic and spirit of the event.
I can 'feel the energy, taste the dust, see the adventure.
Creative, sensitive, imaginative photos.

I am a first time 'virgin', looking forward to attending 2011.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful, artistic photos

I could only wish that I had the talents to take those pics.. They were taken by a professional photographer named RJ Kern.. you can click around on the site to see more of his work. He specializes in wedding photos and I've seen them as well. Amazing, all of it. I have personally never seen a better wedding photog.

"Yffing"?!?

Does the English language really need word with such a narrow connotation??
