January HPS Meeting Announcement

Date and Time: January 8, 2013, 6:00 - 8:00pm
Where:  Makiki District Park 
Speaker:  Eric Yanagi, professional photographer, computer expert

Topic:  Challenges of photographing the Punahou Carnival, how to select and get your shots. Also about the experience of self-published a photo book and will share his carnival book.

(Lytha writes) Eric has always had a camera in his hand ever since high school.  His passion has been photographing what others don’t see in common situations.  His specialty has been photographing in challenging environments such as: 

Ballet (Inland Pacific Ballet in California) – moving dancers in a dim lighting 
A movie in production – outdoors in all conditions, including rain 
Some of his pictures were included in the UH exhibit “Framing Paradise:  Photography and Waikiki,” which opened at the UHM Art Gallery.

Star-Advertiser photo editor George F. Lee said Yanagi's photos capture Waikiki in a time of transition when "streams of visitors and transients from the mainland, hippies, military personnel and the occasional oddball looking for a place to land would be succeeded by a newer breed of visitor attracted by the tourist mecca we would come to know in the 1980s and beyond."  (Star-Advertiser, 8/12/12)
