Aloha in Rajasthan. Photo by Manuel Libres Librodo, Jr.

Aloha left for Asia when she was 16 and, intrigued by its stories, never left. Traveling from her base in Bangkok, Aloha has been stuck in an ash cloud in France, trapped in a flash flood in the Philippines, caught in seven coups d’etat in Thailand, and spent a week not talking at a Benedictine Abbey in Jamberoo, Australia. Her writing and photographs have been featured in CNNGo (USA), UTATA Tribal Photography Magazine (USA), Seventeen magazine (USA), Estamos! (Ecuador), The Korea Times (South Korea), and several books including Danse Avec la Terre, a photography book for Haiti published in France.

Aloha’s work can be found at www.alohal.com. Her Twitter name is @alohalavina.

  11. Thanks for your explanation and tips about lighting. It is so amazing those photos using different reflectors are out of this world.What is your camera make?

  12. Hi Christian,
    For the reflector article in LightStalking, I used a Nikon D300 and Nikkor 17-55mm to shoot all the example photos.

    Yes, it is amazing what reflectors can do, but it’s just a tool. The amazing thing is the light.

    Cheers,
    Aloha
