Painting with Photoshop

Sandra Pearce

Painting with Photoshop

Painting in Photoshop is an alternative for you to paint beautiful art pieces rather than attempting to learn a new program. I took many classes from the best Corel Painting instructors in the business. When I did find time to open and actually paint in Painter, I found I had forgotten most of what I had been taught. Photoshop is where we feel comfortable and are familiar with the tools. The learning curve is drastically decreased. I decided to teach myself to paint using what I knew and loved, Photoshop.

Lighting

Tony Corbell

Between Light and Shadow

Understanding and controlling light quality is at the core of all of Tony’s presentations. Attendees will learn how to see a unique perspective and not be afraid to push the limits of their experience and talents.
Corbell will discuss all types of lighting and its tools in depth but will concentrate on studio lighting. Lighting applications include additive, subtractive, reflective and transmission. Each combination of tool and application will be shown and discussed in detail. Tony will discuss the importance of control in the digital capture and how a few seconds of extra time spent at time of capture can save hours in post production.
Tony always spends time discussing Light Quality as well as Light Quantity and how Light Direction plays a significant role in the resulting mood of an image.

Pictureline

Jens Nielsen

Jens immigrated from Denmark at the young age of 20 and was sponsored by a local photographer and business owner who introduced him to the world of photography. Two years later, Jens started Pictureline Inc., a camera store in Salt Lake City that is still going strong after 30 years.

Jens has adapted to the quickly changing photography industry, first accommodating the professional film photographers, but constantly growing with the fast-paced digital scene that now includes video and motion picture.

With a business always evolving, Jens still keeps his customers at heart of his work. His face lights up when he can teach others about photography and help customers find exactly what they need. He often takes time out of his busy schedule to greet long-time customers as well as assist new clients.

Besides teaching Pictureline’s "More to Photography" camera class series, Jens also has taught various seminars focused on scanning, archiving, and the importance of photo preservation. He is also known for hosting many lectures, events, and workshops at Pictureline. His passion for photography is apparent through his desire to expand the knowledge of amateurs, professionals, and enthusiasts.

With 30 years of experience owning and running one of the most successful camera stores in the United States, Jens has a fundamental understanding of what makes a great photographer.
