**This workshop will be conducted via live streaming with Zoom.**
Given we are still maintaining physical distancing, why not use this time to go out and flex our shooting muscles? Each virtual walk will have a title prompt to focus your shooting. We will all get together via Zoom to share our work and get feedback.
The prompt is: “Business NOT as usual!”
Interpret the prompt however you like. For those who are apprehensive about people shots, you might try to overcome your hesitation and explore a little “street” / store photography (ask permission first).
Once you have a selection of solid work, edit your images down to your best 3 or 4 shots. Do the necessary post-processing to make them the best they can be and submit them via Dropbox for the live, Zoom Review Session. You can submit JPEGs, RAWs or better yet DNGs (with your edits included, along with the original RAW file). There will be a two hour review session to share and receive feedback from the instructor, as well as your peers.
Now - go out and start shooting!
Perhaps after a few photo walks we can have the BARN to showcase our work in a little exhibit.
- Zoom will be used for two way video conferencing and course delivery. Dropbox will be used for course materials and program sharing (please download Zoom and Dropbox ahead of time). You will get links to Zoom and shared Dropbox files prior to the class start date.
- For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial.
- An email will be sent to you 1 day before the class start date with the Zoom video conferencing link to join the class. Please watch for this email.
If your computer does not have a microphone, you can ask questions via phone or by typing into a chat function. The sign-in will open 15 minutes before the class starts, so that you can test your connection if you wish.
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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
