You can participate in the class in three ways:
Bring your laptop, photos, and photo processing software, such as Photoshop, Lightroom, or any other.
If you do not have a laptop to bring, we will have two computers on-site running Photoshop Elements. You can practice on these if you bring a flash/thumb drive with your photos on it. If not, we will have sample photos you can use.
INSTRUCTOR: Jerry Davis has been a photographer for over forty years. Part of that time he was a craftsman as well. After photographing his own work, he started shooting photos for other artists. Much of their work was in glass or silver. Yes, he started with the hard stuff. He often traveled to the artists' locations so they could have full access to their creations. He constructed many small photo studios in the artists' workshops. Jerry works with available light, natural light, continuous lights, and strobes.

About the Instructor
During the last ten years, Jan Branham retired to Bainbridge Island after a 35-year career as a public high school art teacher in California. She has since become a full-time printmaker, which she finds very satisfying and artistically nourishing. Jan primarily works using collage and other printmaking techniques such as etching, linocut, woodblock, and collagraph, as well as the mixing of media to satisfy her image curiosity.
Jan currently works with several groups of printmakers as well as being an active member of BARN’s Print Studio and the Seattle Print Arts. She has been included in a number of local and national shows, from Port Townsend to Brooklyn. See more of Jan’s work at the Island Gallery here on Bainbridge Island.
