There is 2 ways of doing Photomontage digitally. One way is placing the images manually. Another is using the automated photomontage tab. I did both ways. I am using a spoon as my test subject because from my David Hockney work I found an image of a chair distorted so I hoped to try that myself.Before that I took the images in RAW file format because the RAW file format has better quailty than JPEGS. I think this digital process will appeal to the younger audience because the younger audience is more in tune with digital processes.
Above is the settings I used to edit my images via the RAW menu. The only things I wanted to do was make sure they were at similar exposures. The reason why I wanted to make sure is so the images would like up correctly.
Next I saved each image as a TIFF. The reason why did this is because TIFF files have more quality than JPEGS. I also find working with RAW you have more control over how you edit your images, which I like because I don’t like to over edit my images because I find over editing images makes the images look fake.
Above is how I did photomontages automatically in photoshop. When I finished the image I didn’t understand why the final came out like it did. I tried the other options but it still did the same thing. Doing photomontages this way felt to quick and no thought went into it. I also didn’t like doing photomontages this way because I had no control of how it looked, which I didn’t like because I didn’t know how the image would turn out.
Above is how I did Photomontage manually in Photoshop. Compared to the automated way I felt doing photomontage manually was so much better because I had control of how the photomontage looked. I also like doing photomontage manually because it took time and to me when something takes time the outcome is done well.
If I was to do photomontage for my final outcomes I will use the manual method because that method gives me more control over the final outcomes.
