Photo montage has been in my mind for a long while and I’ve finally got round to having a go. The process involves making a composite photo of one or several photos cutting, rearranging and overlapping them into a new image. In older times they would then photograph them for a final image to be processed. The quickest way today of course is to use image-editing software like Photoshop which allows for simple or more complex methods of making a composite. There are hundreds of photo montage styles, most of which extend single scene or subject into a wonderful piece of art or memory.
I have many ideas for putting together a photo montage that I can display for potential customers. Obviously a customer may wish for the more conventional arrangements but I am sure, once they have seen my ideas, they may prefer something new. These montages below are a good start but not done good enough for me to suggest to a customer that this is the quality to expect. For example, some of these photos I have used here were of low resolution which I just happened to have at hand. When I have the time I will produce more with better selected items to work with.
Keep a track of my website if you’re interested in seeing more coming soon.
This first montage is a great idea and quite modern looking. The photo was a low resolution one grabbed from Facebook and as it had a special meaning I had to make do with the quality.
I will definitely use this kind of template again though using the Polaroid overlaps might need some rethinking.
This montage is quite cool. The blending of pictures isn’t a new idea but in this example it’s my own interpretation of it. The photos do not have to be old B&W’s, they could just as easily be pictures you took at a wedding yesterday, it will work with anything.
This one is pretty bog standard for a montage. I don’t particularly like regimented things but as long as you balance the photos out correctly plenty of people will like it. Check out the examples page for more photo montage. Plenty more to be added as I get the inspiration.
