    set the shutter speed to twice the frame rate, I used 1/50th, then use aperture and ISO to expose

    Feb 2019 - Newsletter and Videos

    I enjoyed the newsletter, thank you. My interest was drawn to the section on Buzz filters and the simplifier you recently used. I do like the subtle dream like look, it reminds me of the Orton effect. I believe that this was developed in the 80’s by taking two slide images, one correctly exposed and the other slightly over exposed and out of focus. These two images were then combined and printed. Done well the print had a very subtle dream like quality with a warm glow on the highlights. I do quite like a surreal image and the opportunity to experiment. Of course, this can now be done in photoshop using layers and filters and blending modes.

    Put an SSD in them, it’s quite remarkable how much of an improvement they make. I was about to chuck my W7 laptop out as it was getting embarrassing when doing talks, taking ages. It’s a quick and easy fix, so shame I’m in the UK coz I would do it.

    Upgrade to Windows 10

    Glad to hear tha. I am just thinking of changing my motherboard and CPU, so will also change to W10. Is W10 still a freebe?

    Confused

    Sounds like you were determined to have a good time there then lol. In all seriousness, is this the norm for all photo clubs or just this one? I personally think that photography is changing, with a move away from the classic photo club image. This is not a right or wrong argument, its about what works for a changing population and fashion. There’s even a new phrase going around for landscape photography now, waited for it….. ….Phoneography….

    Maybe, if the membership met the criteria you have set, there would not be a photographic club.

    sync for hard drives.

    I use a Network Attached Server (NAS) device to do this automatically. It holds two hard drives that are set to be mirrored with each other (RAID 1). These NAS devices are not all that expensive compared with he cost of cloud storage and reasonably easy to set up.

    Does PicturesToExe need a name change

    What do the sales figures of PTE look like? If it is trending down, and if so, why? If there is risk aversion to the product then it maybe well worth addressing it. However, I would not do a name change on a product that is known by its functional name unless malware aversion was having an adverse effect on sales.

    Stacking

    Focus Stacking? I know of it and have tried it on a macro shot out of curiosity on a fern. My wife is very much into ferns. You seem to have the knack and captured that fifty pence piece really well.
