Into the Studio With Tokie Rome Taylor:
A Painterly Approach to Photoshop
Atlanta Photography Group is excited to take you Into the Studio with APG member, and working fine art photographer, Tokie Rome-Taylor. In this studio visit Tokie will be taking you into the digital end of her creative process. She will show you the methods she has developed to take a raw image and push it into the lane of fine art. Tokie will demonstrate the ways she uses dodging and burning techniques, textures and layer masks, as well as color grading to give images her signature style.
Tokie will briefly discuss her motivation as an artist, and how she sets up her studio to capture the raw file before diving into the intricacies of how she uses Adobe Photoshop to create the final image. Tokie will show you a previously edited image and explain each step in the process she used to get from the initial capture to the final image. Tokie will then go through the process on an unedited image, so you will be able to glean some insight into her decision making, as well as her technical, process. There will be ample time for questions during this session.
