« on: January 12, 2021, 07:18:55 AM »
Hello All,
Here are my notes from the SLO Bytes Photo Group meeting of 01/10/2021

TOPIC: Water  The meeting took place via Zoom

Ralph Sutter opened the meeting by calling the group's attention to the posts made by member Doug Depue on the SLO Bytes Bulletin in which he shares his thoughts on the subject. View them at,518.0.html

Sutter continued with shots of fountains, ponds and lakes. He followed with a slow motion/freeze frame video of water dropping in a bowl.

Stanford Brown illustrated the many forms in which water is used; in drinking, bathing and playing; filling aquariums, ponds and kitty bowls.

Alan Raul captured images of water around the Pismo Beach and Avila Beach areas.
He also provided a link to more of his images here…
Alan used Adobe Premiere Elements to strip out separate video frames of movies shot with a GoPro camera.
His video clips of the polar bear dip on New Years eve was stitched together using the same program.
Other pictures were modified using Skylum Aurora HDR.

Kaye Raul explored the seashore finding images of fishermen, seagulls and seascapes. She then enhanced the pictures by altering the sky with Luminar AI.

Bob Ward tracked water through its 3 forms showing snow, ponds and falling water. He demonstrated how to alter the look of flowing water by varying the shutter speed and camera ISO.

Doug Depue offered numerous water shots that he found on line, interspersed with some of his own images of local historical floods.

John Waller
followed water from the crop irrigation beside his house and then showed waterfalls from Salmon Creek to Little Falls to Yosemite Falls.

Bob Styerwalt began showing a glass of water and then expanded to images of Morro Rock, the Hearst Castle outdoor pool, Lake Cachuma and Lake Arrowhead.

Our next meeting will take place on February 14th. The topic is Close-up Photography.

The meeting will take place via Zoom. A Zoom invitation will be e-mailed to Photo Group members shortly before the meeting
