    Taking and editing your images represents 80% of the photographic process. The last 20% is organizing your photo library so you can find and publish images quickly, with a minimum of hassle. Adobe’s Lightroom offers a variety of tools for organizing your photo library, including:

    • Catalogs
    • Collections
    • Image Metadata
    • Keywords
    • Flags
    • Stars
    • Labels
    • Face Recognition
    • File Names
    • Published End Products

    Using the right tools and strategies for organizing your library can simplify and streamline your photographic process. This workshop will detail your options and offer a variety of solutions for your to consider.

    In addition, we will review how to move your library from its current home to a Lightroomcentric workflow.

    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

     With some camera basics, simple techniques and rules, you can take control back and make images that truly match your original creative vision. Most cameras have a Program (P) Mode which handles exposure and all you have to do is press the shutter release. While P-Mode is handy, you are turning creative control over to your camera.

    It makes no difference whether you are using a SmartPhone, Point & Shoot or DSLR, each of these has additional modes, such as Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and Manual Modes which will give you more creative options. 

    Topics to be covered include:

    • Light values for night, overcast and bright daylight
    • Aperture (f/stops), Shutter Speed and ISO - the exposure triangle
    • Depth of Field, hyperlocal length, how it varies with focus distance and lens focal length (e.g. zoom)
    • Aperture vs. Shutter Priority and Manual Modes

    After the basics are covered, we will explore a variety of shooting / scene scenarios and apply the exposure knowledge we have gained. These will help make the concepts second nature as you go out into the world and shoot.

    You can bring in your camera to learn where these creative controls have been hidden away and uncover a host of new shooting possibilities!

    How many times have asked yourself: “Where is that photo of..?” Is it on my iPhone, iPad, Mac, in the iCloud or everywhere (or nowhere!). Our photo tools are both seductively simple and also hampered by undue complexity / mystery.

    This class will give you a variety of methods to organize your photo library, making and finding images a snap! In addition, you will learn how to get the most from you smartphone camera and options for “publishing” a set of photos for sharing with your friends and family via a book, slideshow and video movie.

    Images you capture with your iPhone can migrate to your iCloud and Mac with the proper setup. A phone is NOT a great place for long term storage for your photos and the size of each image adds up to fill your available storage space. Backup is critical so that you will never lose your prized images.

    Winter is here. Armed with a new understanding of your photo library, you can make your photo collection a joy to share, instead of another challenge to deal with.

    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.

    Whether you are a jeweler, wood maker, photographer or videographer showing your work in the best possible light is key to selling and getting new “gigs”. Yes, you could find examples “on the fly” in your photo/video library or you could put together a compelling sequence that showcases your work, can quickly launched and tells your story visually.

    These portfolios can be delivered via phone, tablet, YouTube or the web. 

    You already have the necessary tools on your computer to put together a portfolio “reel”. In this class you will learn everything you need to know to assemble your work into a professional presentation. We will focus on the tool and techniques using a variety of real world examples. After class you can put your knowledge into practice. 

    Topics to be covered

    • Forms of output: video, free running slide shows, print, etc.
    • Titling
    • Transitions
    • Filling the screen
    • Aspect ratios
    • Keeping it simple and content focused
    • Adding music / narration

    While this workshop focuses on Apple’s Keynote slide ware program, PC/Mac users who prefer PowerPoint can use similar techniques to achieve the same end results.

    Documenting objects you have made and want to sell with great photos can be achieved with your smart phone, good lighting and attention to detail. In this workshop you will learn how to use natural light and LED lights with a light box for uniform illumination and bounce cards for highlights to light your object. You will learn how to use your phone’s editing software to correct color, crop photos, and size your images for publication. Using a tripod with your cell-phone to achieve proper exposure and a sharp focus will also be covered.

    The second class session will provide more hands-on practice time. Students will capture and edit images of their own objects with their own phones and individual one-on-one assistance.

    While there is nothing inherently wrong with snapshots, you can easily do so much better using a series of simple techniques introduced in this workshop. Creating more lasting images that capture the feeling you had when you took the picture is not hard. It just requires a little more thought before you press the shutter. This workshop will give you the tools and techniques to take your pictures to the next level, independent of your camera from smart phones to DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex). Technical details will be avoided. Instead, we will explore how to see and capture the best images that memorialize and document an event, trip, people and place.

    Additional Notes:

    Attendees are encouraged to submit anonymously-sourced (no embarrassment!) photos that may be used as examples in the “before and after” tricks and tips section. You can submit a few photos via email to krothmuller@gmail.com or bring them in on a thumb drive or camera card before class.  At the end of the class each attendee will receive a carry-around tip card.

    While there is nothing inherently wrong with snapshots, you can easily do so much better using a series of simple techniques introduced in this workshop. Creating more lasting images that capture the feeling you had when you took the picture is not hard. It just requires a little more thought before you press the shutter. This workshop will give you the tools and techniques to take your pictures to the next level, independent of your camera from smart phones to DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex). Technical details will be avoided. Instead, we will explore how to see and capture the best images that memorialize and document an event, trip, people and place.

    Additional Notes:

    Attendees are encouraged to submit anonymously-sourced (no embarrassment!) photos that may be used as examples in the “before and after” tricks and tips section. You can submit a few photos via email to krothmuller@gmail.com or bring them in on a thumb drive or camera card before class.  At the end of the class each attendee will receive a carry-around tip card.
