A Bit of Painting

© 2011 Jane Conner-Ziser

Day five of Jane Conner-Ziser and Jack Davis.  We are painting a little bit today with both Corel Painter 11 and Adobe Photoshop CS5. 

This has been an awesome week for the class and for the Light staff.  When you are surrounded by talented, creative, and charismatic people like Jack and Jane you cannot help but learn and laugh. 

We are planning to bring Jack and Jane back several times this year and next.  They will also join us at the California Photo Festival in October (California Photo Fest) Try and check this pair out, you will not regret it.

Going international,  Jack, Jane, and Hal will be leading a photography tour of Italy in springtime 2012!  This will be very cool.  Wet concrete details soon.

I decided we should finish this post by comparing a Painter Master (Jane Conner-Ziser) and a Painter zero (Hal.)  He has a long way to go.  Both images were shot and painted (Jane) / mangled (Hal) during class.

Hal's feeble attempt.

Fiat Lux!


  1. Not bad Hal. You might think about flipping the background so the branches don't look like there coming out of the models head. But I bet you knew that! We're always learning and loving the "Art" of photography...

  2. Oh, my gosh, it's endless.....where to focus your particular talent? Try everything and see what makes your heart soar.

  3. Darn tree. Concur with the tree from her head. In Jane's version, she moved the tree. Fun stuff.
