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.
This hands-on workshop introduces attendees to a simple and straight forward workflow that starts with photo analysis that highlights deficiencies, and follows with the workflow to make the necessary image improvements.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
