Notes from the Photo Group Meeting of 07/08/18
« on: July 08, 2018, 05:31:28 PM »
Hello All,
Here are my notes from the SLO Bytes Photo Group meeting of 07/08/18

TOPIC: Edit Free for All

The session opened with Ralph Sutter calling attention to the Links Page; http://www.slobytes.org/digital/links.html. He then opened the page, 27 Photos You Won't Believe - Or At Least You Shoudn't ; https://www.topixoffbeat.com/slideshow/18723

There, we saw both final images and the tricks employed to achieve them. This served as an appropriate introduction to today's topic.

Prior to the meeting, members downloaded sample inages from www.slobytes.org/digital/for-edit and made whatever changes they deemed appropriate.

At the meeting, we compared the results. Some of us applied color correction or cropped the images. Others added objects to them not seen in the originals.

The session prompted a discussion of different editing programs and techniques. Encouraged, we agreed to repeat the format in the near future.

Our next meeting will take place on Sunday, August 12th at 2:00pm.  The topic is Symbols.  Each member is invited to share images of objects that evoke responses that take the viewer beyond the literal.

Ralph Sutter
