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.

DUES FOR 2022-2023

Dues for this year are due by June 30th. Amount is $24 for recurring members.
New members and members who have not paid their dues by July will also need to pay an additional $30.

Send your dues to: Eyes of Hawaii Photography Club, P.O. Box 161066, Honolulu, Hawaii 96816
or give the money to Treasurer Don Rostow at the next EOH Meeting on May 23, 2022.


"5 PHOTO STORY"

"5 Photo Story" will be a new feature at our meetings. . It would be similar to the Contemporary Photo Exhibition where a "portfolio" of photos which is called Visual storytelling or Narrative Photography. It could be something simple as a day in the life of a photographer or Christmas shopping or the homeless problem in Honolulu or the birth of a butterfly. The story (in 2-3 sentences) must be submitted with the photos. The challenge will be not to have 5 photos of an event but to tell a story within the event. For example, it’s easy to get 5 photos of a wedding but the challenge is to get 5 photos of the cake cutting ceremony with the smiles, laughter and messy faces.

Send you photo stories to Lance Wong at dragon0419@yahoo.com
