Sometimes the worlds we want to create are only accessible in our minds. Studio photography and costuming is only part of the visual story. This class is an introduction to creating composite portraiture with fantasy models and designers.

Using Adobe Photoshop you will learn how to retouch skin and remove wrinkles in fabric to remove distractions, mask intricate costuming for clean extractions, and blend backgrounds together, create beautiful color grading with Adobe Camera Raw and learn to save the presets for future artwork.


  • Beginner and intermediate Photoshop users.
  • Studio portrait photographers who want to learn compositing.
  • Fantasy and fine art photographers of any level.

Growing up surrounded by the vast prairie of the Canadian north and tales of faraway places, Renée Robyn has chased the perfect backdrop around the world. Approaching photography like a treasure hunter, her compositions are uniquely cinematic, often becoming pieces of a bigger world represented beyond reality. Renée’s style is easily recognizable and distinctly her own. Expertly blending fact, fiction, and a little digital alchemy, she has worked with industry-leading brands like Wacom, Viewsonic, Corel, Capture One, and Intel.

Comfortable facing down gale force winds, climbing fog-shrouded mountains or fast pace commercial studios, her work is impressive and committed. An expert retoucher, Renée applies the same level of commitment to post-processing, leveraging her mastery of color theory, editing, light, and shadow in the digital realm of Photoshop.

She has presented lectures around the world, including PhotoPlus, WPPI, Photokina, CreativeLive, ProEdu, and more.

She is awesome, This is a great lesson using Photoshop. Seeing the different brushes she used on her mask was an eye-opener and will definitely use for working on a mask's layer. Right there is a reason to watch this lesson. 🔥 Do yourself a favor and watch this lesson.
