Sunset and Friday Fireworks Photography Tour

Location: Waikiki

Looking for things to do in Honolulu? How about a tour that teaches you how to take amazing Hawaii sunset and fireworks photos?

Our Sunset and Friday Night Lights photography tour on Oahu will guide you through a 7.5 hour adventure of light. Through the drama of sunset casting color over unique cloud formations over the Waikiki skyline to photographing a fun fireworks show, you’ll learn how to use your camera at any time of day. A simple long exposure technique is taught on this Hawaii photo tour, giving you not only memories and quality photos to take home with you, but new skills to carry into the future.

View the world-famous Hanauma Bay from above, capturing panoramic photos of its world-famous landscape formed by a volcanic explosion, and then venture to the famous windward coastline. This newly formed topography is why Oahu has been selected for many TV shows and movies. We chose this landscape because of its raw Hawaiian feel and atmosphere.

After traveling around to bays, blow-holes, botanical gardens, battle locations, and local food stops, we end this night photo journey with a powerful fireworks show and a little lesson in light painting. We could explain what it is exactly, but it’s better to witness this in person.

Don’t worry, shooting in low light may be intimidating but we’ll teach you how to use your camera to play with light and darkness and to take stellar photos during darker times of the day. It’s easier than you might think! You’ll be able to carry these techniques and skills with you into the future, and the photographs you’ll capture from this photo tour will astonish you! This is one of the most unique things in Hawaii to do.
