Is Cyber Security Really Important? Presented by Bob Gostischa
Paying attention to Cyber Security is more important today than it has ever been. COVID-19 has exposed many more vulnerabilities than in prior years. More of us are now working from home, many children are learning from home, and many of us have added more IoT devices to make our lives easier. These devices present their own dangers which need to be addressed.
This presentation points out the dangers and offers suggestions that will aid in keeping you secure. Using the right programs and apps can help keep you safe and secure as well as reduce your privacy exposure. Using free programs and apps whenever possible to accomplish this goal is an added bonus and this presentation includes information on many recommended free programs. Join presenter Bob Gostischa as he guides you towards secure Cyber Security practices.

Panoramic Images and Focus Stacking Presented by John Krout
First, this presentation will show you how to photograph that magic moment, meaning the fleeting appearance of a toddler's first steps, or when graduate is handed a diploma, or when the bride and groom step out of the church. A widespread complaint about digital cameras is Shutter Lag, a delay between your tap on the shutter button and the actual capture of a photo. You will learn a very simple way to eliminate shutter lag.
Second, this presentation will show you two ways in which computers have made photography of difficult subjects much easier. The two specific types of subjects are close-ups of small items and superr-wide images of very wide or tall subjects, bigger than even a wide-angle lens can depict.
In both cases, the computer can produce a much more pleasing image if you take multiple photos and then combine the photos using computer software. You will see examples and learn how to do both types of computer based composition image prep.
