SLO Bytes Photography Group Notes-February 2018
« on: February 11, 2018, 06:44:26 PM »
Hello All,
Here are my notes for the SLO Bytes Photography Group meeting of 02/11/2018
The session opened with Ralph Sutter calling attention to recent postings in the Links Page of the club web site.

Two of the links offer suggestions relating to using Photoshop Elements.
Other links reference the photo editing programs Aurora; https://aurorahdr.com/and Bokeh;
 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh.

Ralph then played a video collection featuring water; water making patterns as it dropped in a bowl and seascapes of the coast near Cambria, CA.

Alan Raul followed with water scenes shot locally and then enhanced with Aurora and Bokeh. Alan used this software to color-correct images and modify the depth of field in stills taken at the Mission of San Luis Obispo and other local areas.

Kaye Raul presented seascapes of the harbors of Avila Beach, Morro Bay and Piedras Blancas. She showed rowboats, sailboats, elephant seals, swarming seagulls and feeding whales.

John Waller delivered a photo essay on the stages of water; solid, liquid and gas, inserting photos of both the California Central Coast and the High Sierras.

Monica Tarzier began with water images from her backyard and then expanding to the Carrizo Plains.

Bob Grover took John's concept one step further. His opening image showed the earth as viewed from the moon. He then proceeded to share images of clouds, rivers and lakes, glaciers and ice taken from around the globe.

Don Jones showed scenes of some of the waterfowl hunting or perching that he often sees in his frequent walks along the boardwalk near the Monarch Butterfly Grove in Pismo Beach.
