Notes from the SLO Bytes Photo Group Meeting of 12/09/2018
« on: December 09, 2018, 06:28:35 PM »
Hello All,
Here are my notes from the SLO Bytes Photo Group meeting of 12/09/2018
TOPIC: Images Suggesting the Approach of Christmas
The meeting opened with Ralph Sutter showing how he uses Irfanview's Thumbnail Viewer to show thumbnails for RAW images in Windows. Windows native program, File Explorer doesn't do this.
See the tutorial at Showing Thumbnails in Windows for RAW files with Irfanview and at
Ralph then shared a series of holiday images with Christmas decorations, figurines and street scenes.

Connie Sutter followed with similar choices, adding fancy food plates and festive outdoor scenes.

Alan Raul continued in a similar vein, using Aurora HDR to enhance photos of Pismo Pier.

Kaye Raul showed holiday ornaments and pictures of the family celebrating the season.

Bob and Linda Styerwalt chose light displays in their neighborhood and Christmas decorations

John Waller demonstrated how he used long exposure times to illuminate night scenes.
Like Alan, John used Aurora HDR and multiple exposures to bring out detail not seen in a single image.

Bob Grover offered daylight and evening shots of a neighbor's house, illustrating an impressive lighting project.

Our next meeting will take place on Sunday, 01/13/2019 beginning at 2:00 pm.  The topic will be Doors and Other Portals

Ralph Sutter
