Combining Images into a Cohesive, Unified Piece

Some of you already have a great start on your projects. If you are still stuck for ideas, drag all the photos you are thinking of using into your Photoshop project file. This will create a digital collage and you may be able to see a clear theme. Here are some examples:


Shatique:
selfie-shatique-portrait

Angela:
selfie-angela-judging-final-project-copy

Betty:
Replica of Slave Quarters

Serena:
selfie-serena-portiat

Once you have combined any images you might use, begin removing the backgrounds from each image. Leave the file’s background plain for now. If you can create a strong composition against a plain white background, it will only get better when you add the right background. Conversely, getting stuck on a weak background early in the project will only hinder you.

If you already have a strong concept like Lauryl or Giacomo, keep going:

lauryl-60s-mod

Lauryl’s progress from last class

giacomo-portrait-project

Giacomo’s progress from last class

Post your progress to your blog, and write a few sentences describing what you plan to do with the images you have combined. Make sure you also write about anything you are struggling with.
