Montages and collages

Postby Linda Finstad on Sat May 08, 2010 11:00 am

Hi
I would really like to offer a nice selection of montages and collages to my horse show clients - but my efforts at creating them seem - well kinda lame.
Does anyone know of any templates or examples I could look at to help me on the right track. You can check out my efforts on facebook just type in my name - Linda Finstad thanks

Hi Linda,

I added you as a friend on Facebook and checked out your collages. The one with the jumper seems a bit busy to me. If it were me, rather than show different shots of this horse jumping, I'd take the best action shot and a macro headshot, plus maybe a field shot and college them using the action/jumping shot as the main focus. Just my 2 cents :)

I have done some collages for print ads and there's some of my published work on my site http://jaxfoto.com - its fun but never easy and a lot of work.

Jackie

Linda:

Try fotofusion by lumapix.com for collages. I use it all the time.

Send me an e-mail through my website and I'll show some samples of collages I do for my clients.

Much success,

The best advice I could give you is to take some Photoshop lessons. To do collages, you have to know how to work with layers and masks. I am a graphic designer so Photoshop has been part of my work for the last 12 years. I did try to teach a friend to do collages... But since Photoshop is a huge software with tons of possibilities, I suggested my friend to take Photoshop lessons with a real teacher! ;) Good luck!
