WELCOME!

To the Eyes of Hawaii Photography Club Website!

We are photographers of all skill levels who not only share our love of photography but also like to socialize with other like-minded people.

Our meetings are held on the 4th Monday of the month. Potluck is from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Our general meeting is from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Meetings normally consist of member presentations, short technical tutorials, the Theme of the Month Slide Show and a guest speaker.

Visitors may attend up to 2 meetings before deciding whether to join the club. with over 90 members, the meetings tend to be quite crowded and confusing to some so if you are there for the first time, please ask for our Vice-President, Eddie Freeman.

We are currently only meeting via Zoom. Please feel free to join us at our informal or Regular Monday meetings at 7:00 pm. Link to our meetings is:

THEME FOR OCTOBER 2021: "STILL LIFE"
A still life can be anything that is immobile/stationary; bouquet of flowers, bowl of fruits, vase, miniatures, statues, etc.  Great theme for staying at home. Express yourself using light, staging, colors, forms, etc.

https://www.format.com/magazine/resources/photography/still-life-photography-ideas-and-tips

Submit up to 5 pictures by midnight, Saturday, October 23 to: okanor968@yahoo.com

Horizontal (landscape format) images will show better than vertical (portrait format). 

If you have a full-res image, you can downsize it to 2000 pixels on the long side and it will be easier to send by email. On the other hand, before you send your images, be sure they are not too small or they will not show well. Try for about 1500-2000 pixels on the long side.

Send the pictures in as a email attachment since embedding the picture in the email is not reliable. (Do not use a hotmail account because it reduces picture size).

 

Remember to rename each image beginning with your name, eg., JoeBlow1, JoeBlow2, JoeBlow3, etc. This makes it easier for the person doing the theme to keep track of all the images.

 

THEME FOR NOVEMBER 2021: "THINGS THAT FLY, SWIM, RUN OR CRAWL"

Submit up to 5 pictures by midnight, Saturday, NOVEMBER 20 to: erickt72@gmail.com

Horizontal (landscape format) images will show better than vertical (portrait format). 

If you have a full-res image, you can downsize it to 2000 pixels on the long side and it will be easier to send by email. On the other hand, before you send your images, be sure they are not too small or they will not show well. Try for about 1500-2000 pixels on the long side.

THE NEXT EOH MONTHLY MEETING IS ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 AT 7:00PM

Since we are not going to hold our inperson meetings until the pandemic is over, we will be having a Zoom online meetings.

ZOOM BASICS

Try to use your biggest screen for your maximal enjoyment. It can be done on a cell phone or tablet, but a laptop or desktop unit works better. If your computer has a camera then the rest of us can see you, but for this meeting it is not critical. If you want to be seen as you join the meeting click where it says “Join with video”. You will also want to click “Join with audio”.

If you haven’t used Zoom yet, it might be useful to first go to zoom.com and register as a new user. I believe all you have to give is your email and a password, no other private information, and it is free.

At the end of these instructions will be an invitation to join the meeting. All you have to do is click on the link to start the process. In the invitation will be a passcode which you may need to join the meeting. You will get a window that says “Open zoom.us?" and click on that. Again, click on “Join with audio”. You will then go to a “waiting room”, and the host (probably Don Rostow) will let you in.

In the upper right portion of the screen you have a choice of “speaker view” or “gallery view”. For this type of meeting I would choose “speaker view” and the speaker’s picture will fill most of the screen.

If more than one person tries to speak at a time the sound really deteriorates. At the bottom of the screen you can click on “Chat” to type a question or comment that everyone can see. We may also use that to actually vote for officers. Please be sure there are no other sounds going on in your room like barking dogs, screaming grandkids, or a TV, and please silence your cell phones. If you are hi-tech and have a microphone and/or headphones for your computer, use them.

UPCOMING EOH PHOTOSHOOTS

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

SUNSET IN KAKAAKO
Thursday, 4:30 pm

Thank you to Sergio Accatino, Karen Ahn and Roy Adaniya for putting this together.
This is a tentative date which maybe changed depending upon the COVID case counts and community spread. If you do attend this photoshoot, please be vaccinated and wear a mask. We will send out a email to inform everyone of the final date.

DETAILS

The walking length is approximately 0.9 mile, with a walking time of one hour, considering many stops for making pictures.
The Meeting Point could be Auahi St. intersection Coral St (SALT, Morning Brew corner).
Meeting Time from 4:30pm to 5:00pm.
Walking Tour starts at 5:00pm (no delay otherwise it becomes too dark)
Tour ends at 6:30pm, at the Starting Point.

Karen and I suggest to walk in the afternoon for several reasons:
1) In the morning through the early afternoon the light is very bright and harsh with many white and metal cladding buildings.
2) In the late afternoon the light is softer and we could have nice sunset colors.
3) In the late afternoon the temperature is cooler and walking those streets we will not feel like in a Sahara Desert expedition.
4) After the walk we could have an early dinner together.

For dinner we have several options at SALT:
1) Highway Inn
2) Hank’s Haute Dogs
3) Morning Brew
4) Moku Kitchen

If we will have dinner at SALT, we can park at SALT parking. It will cost $1 with validation (or probably $2).
If will not have dinner at SALT, the parking is open everywhere, from free parking to meters (but be aware of car thieves in the area).

As alternate, we could get together for the early dinner at H Mart, Keawe St. Second Floor.
There is an open area with tables and chairs with food booths.
The parking is $2-3 with validation. Parking entrance from Pohukaina St.
