in this course you'll learn

Creating composites: You’ve thought about doing it, right?! You may have even tried a couple, but if you aren’t familiar or confident with the tools and workflow to be successful, it can be a very intimidating to create magical images you have envisioned. After all, when creating composites, you’re not just documenting what is, you’re using your own unique inner stories and ideas to make an image happen. This is the art of storytelling by stitching multiple images together to make something magical. This 2-week course is the answer to making composites with confidence and ease! Two weeks of Live Editing where each day Robyn will live edit YOUR images to show multiple ways to add drama, depth, and creativity to each one! Students will be asked to submit images in order to all learn together all the ways that images of all kinds can be brought to new heights! In Kicking Ass & Taking Frames, Robyn will break down the meaning and thoughtfulness behind compositing images & will provide you with her essential tool kit & step-by-step process for producing magical, kickass imagery - including these key concepts:

  • What is a Composite: the break down & meaning of compositry & how merging of two or more images creates one magical composite image.

  • The Missing Key: compositing concepts; ensuring all parts of the image look as if they have the same perspective, focal length, depth of field, plane of focus, white balance, saturation, exposure, and light source

Robyn is lovely. I learned more from this small course than I have from any other course I’ve taken. I love that she walks through, shows you multiple ways to do processes and that she is so much about spreading her knowledge and not ‘keeping it secret’. The written parts were well written, clear and easy to follow and learn from. Will definitely follow along for her subsequent courses!

Hi, I’m Robyn, and I’ll be helping you create something incredible!

I’ve identified myself as an artist since childhood, and I simply love to create. So when it comes to my photography, I will touch on everything from set creation, to creative and knowledgeable editing, to painting, sewing, crafting, or building whatever I need in order to realize my vision.

If it’s artsy – I want my hands in it… But mostly, I want to  share it with you.
