Beyond the Portrait
Composite Images & Other Artwork
A digital photo artist or designer combines two or more images, usually in Photoshop, to say something about the subject. Sometimes the other images include a locale — a room, a building, a field, or a landscape. They might be something he or she uses in work, school, a sport, or a hobby. They may be people that matter in his or her life — family, friends, or colleagues.
The blending and selective masking of entire layers for some artistic work is relatively straightforward, though demanding of imagination. The treatment, scaling, placement, and blending of the elements of a montage, or composite, on the other hand, can be quite complex. See the samples below.
