Set the stage for more believable yet magical digital collages using Adobe Photoshop with Maggie Taylor as your guide. In this two-day webinar, she walks you through the techniques she has perfected over the years in order to create a stage set and populating it with an act. Using photographed and scanned elements from a variety of sources, paying attention to light and shadows, and working with color are all part of this adventure in creative compositing. Each program consists of an hour-and-a-half of demos and presentations by Maggie focused on her Adobe Photoshop techniques, with the final 30 minutes set aside for your questions.
After each of Maggie’s 2-hour programs on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, you will be able to download the same files she used and a set of instructions. You may also re-watch the Zoom sessions as you build the image on your own. The goal is for you to be able to fully grasp these Photoshop techniques, that are some of Maggie’s favorites, so that you can use them in your own digital composites.
For those who participated in Maggie’s SFW: Perspectives presentation in October 2020, Compositing Practice with Maggie is a more narrowly-focused, technique-based program for a smaller audience of experienced Adobe Photoshop users, and lets you put into practice some of the techniques Maggie shared in her earlier presentation.
You can participate in this seminar even if you can’t make one or all of the live events. Participants will have access to the recordings for two weeks following the last day.

Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.
Please Note: During the online registration process you will be asked about housing and meals. Answer no to both questions.
Maggie Taylor spent ten years making color still-life photographs before transitioning to digital imaging in 1997. Her label-defying, whimsical, and poetic images have been collected by numerous museums. Her books include No Ordinary Days, Adobe Photoshop Master Class: Maggie Taylor’s Landscape of Dreams, Solutions Beginning with A, and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll.
I'm so glad I took Maggie’s class. Besides being a marvelous artist, she is a great teacher. For me, the content covered was perfect as was the pace of the presentation. I'll be taking her other courses! Many thanks.
