Notes from the SLO Bytes Photo Group Meeting of 02/10/2019
« on: February 11, 2019, 09:07:14 AM »
Hello All,
Here are my notes from the latest meeting of the SLO Bytes Photo Group
TOPIC: Motion
Ralph Sutter began the meeting by pointing out the latest additions to the links page; http://www.slobytes.org/digital/links.html.

The first one pointed to Shotcut https://www.shotcut.org/; a freeware open source, cross platform video editor. Sutter confessed that he was unlikely to use this very capable editor because he already has equally powerful tools. Though paid programs, Ralph has already purchased them and is hesitant to invest the time required to learn a new program with redundant features.

The second link was to the movie, High Flying Bird; https://www.netflix.com/title/80991400. This excellent film about professional basketball agents was shot completely on an iPhone 8.

Sutter then offered his slide show of running dogs, running water and bouncing balls.

Connie Sutter followed with her take on motion; She created a presentation with images of kinetic grandkids shot on her iPhone and edited in Adobe Rremiere Elements.

Alan Raul
, using both his iPhone and a Hero camera attached to his chest, explored the shoreline near Shell Beach, showing the same rocky cove over time with changing sea conditions.

Bob Styerwalt achieved interesting effects by photographing spinning objects at different shutter speeds thus freezing or adding blur to the images.

John Waller presented long-exposure night shots and curious seascapes created with multiple color channels in Photoshop.

The topic for our next meeting will be Shadows; images that aren't quite there.
