    This discussion event is to promote the upcoming class Making Digital Memories beginning on August 10th. Join this free "Taste of" event to determine if you would like to register for the full upcoming class.

    It's time to spring images and video media out of jail, organize it and put it all together in a compelling manner. Then, you will have an organized, reproducible “product" to share with love ones, family and friends. They in turn can add to it, share their own stories with you and pass on the legacy. It is not hard, but it does require effort, understanding some basic tools and guidance to launch your project.

More recently he has had the opportunity to study under some great mentors, including: Jay MaiselJoel MeyerowitzEddie 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: krothmuller@gmail.com

        John McKenzie is a wearer of many hats. Coming from a successful background of managing high tech engineering and manufacturing operations, he then went on to apply lessons learned from industry to coach and facilitate executive child welfare teams in strategic planning and change management in 25 states across the country. Now retired he spends much of his time producing videos for non-profit organizations and individuals here on Bainbridge Island. WA. He has produced over 120 of these videos over the past 10 years.

        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 embarrassments!) 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.

        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 and animated graphic). You will learn JavaScript basics along-side the P5.js  library (https://p5js.org/) which greatly simplifies media coding.

        There will be no programs to install. All of your sketches / programs will be constructed and executed within your web browser (Chrome is highly recommended) - link to the online editor :https://editor.p5js.org/. You will need a desktop, laptop, Chromebook or tablet that has a web browser.

        A variety of different sketches will be developed with the attendees. Each session will offer a few small programming projects to build on and explore the lecture materials. Learning to program requires practice coding. At the beginning of each session, we will review solutions to the previous session’s “homework” before we tackle new material.

        Course sessions will be a mix of online Zoom lectures and in person workshops. Session 1, 3, and 5 will be at BARN. Sessions 2 and 4 will be via Zoom.

        Attend our free "Taste of Fun With Java Script" discussion with the instructor. The free event is Monday, July 19th beginning at 7:00 PM. You can sign up to receive the Zoom link by clicking here.

        Details:

        • Registration for this class will close on Saturday, July 31st at 8:00PM. 
        • A reminder email will be sent one day prior to the class with important information regarding the Zoom link and the upcoming sessions. Please watch for this email.
        • While at BARN we will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Everyone is required to wear masks, wash or sanitize hands frequently, maintain a distance of 6 feet between individuals, and stay home if they are sick. Overall BARN safety policies are here

        Laptop displaying multiple photos-Photo credit: pexels.comWe all have lots and lots of images and videos squired away and "hidden” on our phones, computers and in the cloud. There are stories to tell and relive from special holidays, events, family history, places we have visited, etc.

        It's time to spring this media out of jail, organize it and put it all together in a compelling manner. Then, you will have an organized, reproducible “product" to share with loved ones, family and friends. They in turn can add to it, share their own stories with you and pass on the legacy. It is not hard, but it does require effort, understanding some basic tools and guidance to launch your project. Your instructors, John McKenzie, a videographer, and Ken Rothmuller, a photographer will help you realize a final product that you will be proud to share with others.

        Join your instructors for a special free "Taste of.." discussion on Tuesday, July 27th at 7:00pm. You will meet the instructors and ask questions to determine if this class is a good fit for you before signing up for this class. Click here to register for this free session.

          Join Ken Rothmuller and Sarah King in late August on a Bainbridge Island Photo Walk and Review. There will be a “Kickoff” (Zoom) session on Thursday, August 26th, a Saturday Morning Photo Walk / Shoot Session and the following week a Review Session at BARN.

          You will have the opportunity to shoot at Hawley Cove / Beach (with Sarah) and/or Downtown / Waterfront (with Ken). Sarah and Ken are available to answer questions, offer compositional guidance and generate ideas. Participants should already be familiar with their camera gear. Anything from a Phone Camera to DSLRs can be used.

          After the shoot, you should edit you work down to your favorite / best 3 to 4 shots. Do the necessary post-processing editing to make the shots the best they can be and then submit them via Dropbox by 6pm Wednesday prior to class on Thursday. You can submit JPEGs that are original sized or at least 1920px on the longest side.

          At the Review Session on Thursday, September 9th, held at BARN (in the Great Room) we will have a look at everyone’s shots, offer our suggestions for improvements and answer questions.

          Come join us!

          Sarah King has been photographing for over a decade. Her current work centers around abstraction and interdisciplinary approaches to her ideas, but her very first subject was the natural environment of the Pacific Northwest. She enjoyed touring the Olympic Peninsula with her large format camera and printing in the traditional darkroom. She is excited to share her enthusiasm for this subject with workshop participants.
