Yesterday we did a bunch of shooting on location. Where we are basically taking the location and turning it in to something else. So the whole point of this course is to take whatever's available to you. So whatever those skills are. If you don't have a studio. Like yesterday we went through how to composite stuff shot on location. And then today we're gonna be doing stuff that's shot in studio to create a composite. So that looks like it was shot on location and to make it as realistic as possible. So, that's kind of where we're sitting at right now. So that, like I said this is yesterday and we're gonna go on today and we're gonna do the studio stuff. So I preface every single one of these classes but sometimes not all composites turn out the first try. (chuckles) So even yesterday, like when you're going through the coloring and everything like that I was like pushing through the color and some of it was sitting there and I was like, "I'm not really feeling it, you know?" It wasn't ...
doing the thing that I liked and then sure enough towards the end just. (snaps) It all kinda fell together and it fell together quite quickly. So hopefully we're gonna do some of that today. Well not hopefully. We're gonna do it today. (laughing) It is happening. So what we're gonna go through today. I'll just leave that open for another minute. Is we're going to, I'm gonna show you guys some videos. Basically we went out and reshot a bunch of relocation plates and so it's all filmed. Kind of some of the thought process that goes through it. And then we're gonna start going through some of the styling ideas, the location. And see some pre-visualization artwork. So like I said, yesterday as well. Or on the previous class, I can't show you the mood board because I don't have permission to use those images on media. So we're gonna pretend. (laughs) And we're gonna fake some stuff together and then we're gonna sit there. I'm gonna open up Photoshop. Use some of the files that we shot. And I'm gonna do some previous sketching on kinda what's going through my head when I'm working on this and how we're gonna build the lighting set up for it.

i have to say, the class was AMAZING! in every way from the tricks and technique's of mastering this art form to the personalized attention given by Renee. through the class you are able to learn information that would normally take the average person years of trial and error. Renee gives you the gift of benefitting from her her experiences and what she has learned THE HARD WAY! Renee is an outstanding instructor full of passion for what she does, and with a strong desire to not only improve the art, but more importantly, pay it forward, by sharing her knowledge with others.
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the event in person, truly a once in a lifetime experience for me, the staff at creative live were THE BEST! they are helpful in every way and really made this event something special, i can't say enough about the experience i had and would highly recommend that anyone who has the opportunity to go down for a class, it will be an experience that you will never forget. but the best part of creative live is that wether you are there in person or wether you are watching from the comfort of your own home, you are involved in the class in REAL TIME, you have the ear and attention of the skilled artist giving the instruction, being there myself i can tell you that Renee was regularly given questions and comments from the viewers via the creative live staff and she would respond to them as they came, in that way you are very much apart of the class you are never left without getting that personalized attention of an amazing artist or that specific question you have answered, and even better you have the option to purchase the class and have it as a constant resource in your tool kit that you can refer back to at any point that you need a refresher or want to recall that special technique that was demonstrated.
thank you thank you to renee and all the staff at creative live you have a life long member in me. and i would recomend that everyone take advantage of this valuable resource
I have completed many creative courses. This is by far the best so far.
Quite the most amazing and inspiring presenter with a true passion for their craft.
The core information is excellent, but the thing i liked most were her subtle tangents, dropping incredible information completely on the fly.
A complete real world honest view of business and practical side of the industry. Especially her advice on how she started to her business.
Saving up enough in her day job so she could pay the rent, and do photography for 3-6 months.
Awesome class. I've been following Renee for a very long time. I love her work and to finally see her work and get an image done from start to finish was quite something.. I love the way she sees things and the way she treats her work and all fellow creative.
I would recommend this to everyone interested in getting into composting. Looking forward to creating and making my own art work.
But it now :) Have fun creating. :)
