Each time there is a change of performers on the ship, the wardrobe is reused and altered for the new cast. They are responsible for their wardrobe until the next replacement performers take over.
These photos taken in Waikiki. Young guys jump from a concrete peer into shallow water. There is always a crowd of participants and spectators.
Great natural and real smile
A lot of guys this age wear board shorts with underwear (when the underwear band is showing it's called sagging), but I didn't notice it that much this year.
70-300 Canon DO lens used.
This was the first performance by these singers and dancers on Sapphire Princess. They had only a few days to pull off this show and they aced it.
Well, I was in the front row and felt like I was in the personal space of the performers, but they all stayed professional and didn't seem to notice
Looking down to the shallow water and waiting for the wave before the jump.
A lot of people were taking photos. All the activity and beauty of Hawaii. One of the best places for a vacation in the sun
Center is Pete from the UK. He is one of the dancers. On his left is one of the lead singers and on his right is a dancer from Russia.
It is much easier to take photos when the dancers are standing still.
I did get permission for most of these photos, but there is no posed look. They were all having too much fun. Just a slice of normal life in Hawaii.
This area of the Waikiki Beach in front of the zoo is a excellent social meeting spot for locals and tourists. The ship only stopped here for one day.
The water, receding from the beach makes a great background. It catches the light a little different depending on where you look. For me it's much better than a muslin background in a studio.
No rough weather on this cruise. Lucky for the passengers and performers.
This is how deep the water is where the jumping takes place, but a wave does make it much deeper.
Although the beach is full you can easily get a shot like this, where it looks like it's just me and my shadow and feet in the warm sand. I was sipping on a cup of Macadamia nut coffee from the ABC Store across the street when I took this shot.
I liked the background of the sand being carried back to the waters edge, so I cropped the photo with the subject in the lower left corner
Another lead singer on our left and two dancers on the right. The dancers on this cruise doubled up on the singing and the singers did some great dancing too. I know the depth of field was not great on this shot but I had to use aperture open wide as flash was not permitted.
In the background ,you can see the concrete wall this young guy is standing on. A wider angle lens would make the wall seem to be much longer. A telephoto lens gives a compressed shorter looking wall and separates the subject from the background.
