ENTRIES - CONCEPTUAL MONTAGE-Weekly Comp 27/02 to 6/03

ENTRIES - CONCEPTUAL MONTAGE- Weekly Challenge 27/02 to 6/03

The chat thread is HERE

Something a little different for this week's challenge. I am posting early so that you have the maximum time to get this done :)

The challenge is CONCEPTUAL MONTAGE. Your task is to make a montage of at least 3 different images, creating a new picture that combines the starting images into a conceptual image. Sounds complicated, but really it need not be. The 'Space Time' image that I did for the negative space challenge, for example, was a montage of two images simply blended with a layer mask.

You can blend images using masks and blending styles (even layer styles if you are really handy with an advanced editor) to achieve some interesting results.

To the nitty gritty. This week only one of the photos needs to be taken during the competition window, the others can be from your own personal libraries if you wish – or you can take all the pictures this week – it's up to you.

You will need an editor that supports layers, layer masks, and blending modes. This is Photoshop, recent versions of Photoshop Elements, Serif Photoplus, Corel Paintshop, GIMP (free). 

If you simply search the web for 'photo montage' images you will find thousands of examples to inspire you, or if you come across any Russian wedding photos, examples of what not to do ;)

HERE is a good tutorial covering the basics, but there are lots to choose from.

I hope that you will find this a lot of fun.

OK, get going :tup:
