  • Wow! love her!!!! Creative live, you need to bring her back for a full class, She is amazing great editing tips. Thank you so much Renee Robyn
  • Every artist has their own techniques to create a composite. Therefore it's always useful to look at different artists. And Renee Robyn is certainly worth looking at. In this class she's doing an amazing composite with just very basic Photoshop tools like brushes, masking and cloning. True, at a certain point she is using some third party plug-ins, but these are not really necessary for her compositing process. Robyn's enthousiasm and clear way of explaining things make this class worth every penny. If you see what she does in about 90 minutes, can you imagine what she could teach in a whole two-day class? Hint, CreativeLive ??? :)
  • Loved Reene's fresh teaching style and her explainations on how she sees photography and creative compositing. She does a superb job in trying to teach by example in just 90 minutes. Definitely recommended as a starting course on compositing!
