Hello All,
Here are my Notes from the 05/17/2020 meeting of SLO Bytes' Photo Group
TOPIC: Still-life Photography - subjects could include household items like plants, bottles, vases and items in your garage. Let your creative skills come to the surface with unique lighting, composition and digital manipulation. The meeting took place via Zoom

Ralph Sutter opened the meeting by calling attention to two new resources on the Photography web site, www.slobytes.org/digital/links.html.
They were
   PhotoStage; a freeware slideshow creator; https://dl.4kdownload.com/app/4kslideshowmaker_1.8.1_x64.msi?source=website
   Thanks to Stanford Brown for the reference
   Video Backdrops from British TV; https://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/empty_sets_collection/zfvy382
   Thanks to Ron Jeffries for this link

Ralph then presented a series of images of ripening bananas and a collection of belts
Alan Raul followed offering a tour of the new park at Shell Beach focusing on the light standards
Bob Styerwalt shared photos of plants and tools
Connie Sutter focused on a single crystal vase shown from different angles and in different lights
Kaye Raul also incorporated vases accompanied by fruits
John Waller showed family heirlooms and objects from travel abroad

The next meeting will take place on June 14th at 2:00pm
The topic is Animals; please share images of fauna that walk the earth, fly the skies or swim the seas
