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 Adobe, Wacom, 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 colour theory, editing, light, and shadow in the digital realm of Photoshop. Renée travels full-time, shooting for commercial and fine art clients.
I’ve been very happy to add the VP2771 to my digital family. When working on composites that are often going for large scale print, having the extra visual real estate to check out every detail is extremely helpful. Being able to calibrate with the X-Rite i1 for color accuracy to print, as well as the ability to switch between different calibrations easily is great. This helps me test how the files could look on other user devices and inevitable color shifts in a digital world.
There’s also a very handy Warm setting that comes with the monitor, which is great to switch to when I’m doing digital paperwork and I want to reduce eye strain. The extra USB 3.0 ports are wonderful as I can connect a multitude of drives to hunt for the right plate or element without wasting time disconnecting some to reconnect others. Knowing I can be as efficient and reliable as possible, when time is money, counts for a lot.
