Since this was our first trip to Hawaii, we had to attend a luau. Rather than a ”normal” luau, though, we ended up choosing to visit the ”Feast at Lele” in Lahaina which is more of a gastronomic tour of the South Pacific (and, by the way, very highly recommended). Just at the entrance to the large terrace hosting the event, this young man was carving tikis and other sculptures for sale to the tourists and I grabbed a couple of shots of him (with his permission) as he worked.
This image was taken under available light. The sculptor had a single outdoor floodlight set up as a working light and it provided exactly the kind of illumination that I wanted for the picture.
By the way, if you visit the Feast at Lele, remember to take a lens longer than the 50mm I had that night if you want pictures of the dancers (unless you have a table right at the front). The lighting during the show is great but my lens choice that evening wasn’t up to the job of catching the action on the stage.
