Re: Looking for prof photomontages

one shld understand there are differences between a montage, a collage and a photo-manipulation (or 'chop').

a montage is a group of shots put together to form one idea, sequence or overall theme. one shot by itself may not be enough to portray the idea or emotion desired, but as a group they do so. so, something like a series of shots of a baseball being pitched by a pitcher and it's progress towards the plate and batter and all arranged into one image would be a montage.

a collage is a group of objects, photos, parts of photos, parts of objects like newspaper clippings and/or bits and pieces of things combined to make an object or image. things like objects made of bits of macaroni, straw, newspaper clippings and so on, would be a collage.

there are similarities in the two, but they are not the same thing.

a chop or manipulation also has similarities to the above two, but is always an image and is comprised of bits of one image put into another or of parts of one image altered to make a different representation of the original.

so, godmother, your links go mostly to chops. i dont really see a montage in any of them.

so, angel ice, are you looking strictly for montages or any of the above?

I do a lot of compositing in PS, if thats what you mean. You can look at my gallery at ...

http://www.modelmayhem.com/pics.php?id=92920

.. where all backgrounds have been replaced by photos or ps stuff.


Godmother , great images you have done. The beetle is so good.

Re: Looking for prof photomontages

That is more like compositing. Extracting objects and put them in another scene, adjusting/painting shadows, correcting color so they will fit.

Thats what I do too, on all my images. But I use models that I put on other images/backgrounds.

Extracting objects like in your example can be very difficult if the have a busy background, and not shot against a bluescreen or at least a one color background.

Extracting can be done with the Extract tool in PS for example.
