    Every good shot deserves some extra attention to make it the best it can possibly be. Adobe’s Lightroom software offers a comprehensive toolset that is focused on photography. Besides optimizing a photo’s appearance, LR provides tools for organizing your entire photo library.

    Instructor Bio:

    Ken Rothmuller has been shooting images since getting his first camera as a teenager. Later in life he had both a B/W and color darkroom before switching over to a digital workflow. More recently he has had the opportunity to study under some great mentors, including: Jay Maisel, Joel Meyerowitz, Eddie Soloway, and Margo Davis.

    Adobe purchased Ken’s digital asset management company (Fotiva / PhotoTablet) back in 2001. While working at Adobe as a senior computer scientist, he help shepherd and promote the initial, internal Lightroom development efforts as an important alternative to Photoshop for Photographers (and mere mortals).

    Ken especially enjoys traveling with his camera allowing him to see new places more deeply, cementing memories and giving him the opportunity to interact with locals.

    He has taught photo workshops and photography courses at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA. You can reach Ken at: krothmuller@gmail.com

    Whether you have a smartphone, point & shoot or DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex), If you want to get the most from your camera, you should consider shooting using the RAW Mode / File Format instead of JPEGs (or a combo of RAW + JPEG). JPEGs are like a “cooked pie”. Once you have one, you can’t go back and make it into something radically different (without destroying it!). RAW images give you the basic ingredients that can be “cooked” / edited in a variety of ways. RAW images are like negatives (in the pre-digital days) and JPEGs are the equivalent to a final print.

    The following topics will be covered:

    • Differences between RAW and JPEG image files
    • Pros and cons of RAWs and JPEGs
    • How to access RAW/JPEG modes on your camera
    • Why shoot both, RAW and JPEG, at the same time
    • Editing advantages of RAW with Adobe’s Lightroom demonstrations
    • Destructive vs. non-destructive image editing
    • Each camera has it’s own unique RAW format, learn about DNG - a more universal solution


    Several example images will demonstrate the advantages (and draw backs) of RAW vis. JPGs. Bring your camera and learn how to choose between these two file formats or you can select both for each picture you take.

    JavaScript is the programming language that powers the web and is one of the most popular and pervasive, modern coding languages available today. In this workshop we will approach JavaScript from the perspective of creating small, creative projects (sketches) that are media focused (art, animated graphics, sound, and music). You will learn JavaScript basics along side the P5.js library (https://p5js.org/) which greatly simplifies media usage. There will be no programs to install and all of our sketches will be constructed and executed within your web browser (using Chrome) - https://editor.p5js.org/.

    Bring your laptop and let’s have some fun coding!

    On Monday, November 18th there will be an optional JavaScript Open studio for students of this class to enable one-on-one focused assistance with the instructor.

    Skill Level: Beginner - No previous coding experience required.

    Ages: Ages 14+ Welcome.

    After we have accumulated photos from a trip, event or collections of old snapshots they tend stay hidden on our computers and are seldom shared as a group. A publishing option for these “dormant” photos is produce a movie of still images (short movie clips can be included as well) that can be shared via the internet, cloud storage or thumb drive with friends and family.

    This workshop will introduce you to the techniques for making compelling video content from your photos and video clips. Topics will include:

    • Making photos digital ready (scanning, sizing, editing, etc.)
    • Accessing your digital content
    • Animation techniques
    • Inserting short movie snippets
    • Adding titles
    • Multi-image displays and animations
    • Enhancing your show with audio tracks, timing to audio markers
    • Sharing Options

    While we will focus on using FotoMagico, a Mac only program, techniques learned can be directly applied to various PC-similar offerings. Three iMac will be available in class to experiment with the movie making software. We will “buddy-up”, two attendees per desktop. BARN members can access these iMacs and FotoMagico during studio hours to produce their own movies.

    Let’s make some movies together!
