Creating Collage & Composite
Join the host of Mobile Photography Weekly and the co-author of The Creative Digital Darkroom,Photoshop Masking & Compositing, and Real World Digital Photography for an inspiring and informative 1-day workshop where you'll learn how you can use your iPhone and/or iPad to create photo composites and collage images.
In this class we’ll be covering step-by-step workflows for combining images in a variety of apps, and you'll learn processing techniques and conceptual approaches for using your iPhone or iPad to make interesting and visually compelling images from multiple source photos.
We’ll start with simple composites and collages that are based on blending modes, and then work up to more intricate methods that include using layers and layer masks. All work will be done on your iPhone or iPad using a variety of different apps (a list of the apps we’ll use will be sent to participants before the course begins). You can use your own images or follow along with photos that will be available for the class.
In addition to the nuts and bolts of working with apps to create composites, we’ll discuss what types of images or scenes work well for creating composites, and how to photograph with compositing in mind to create images that will work better once you begin the image blending process.
Participants are welcome to bring their own images on their iOS devices, as well photograph objects or elements they want to use in a collage project. Seán will also provide a short video to watch a few weeks before the class with tips for photographing people or objects with your smartphone’s camera that make it easier to select and isolate them in a compositing project. For collage projects we will work on in class, the images will be supplied to you.
What if I have an Android Phone? The class will be taught from an iOS-centric perspective, but some of the apps we will work with are available on Android. All of the compositing concepts that we will explore in this class, both in terms of photography and collage or composite creation, can be applied if you use and Android device, but some of the apps shown in the class are only available for iOS..
In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of creating collage and composite images on mobile devices, and you’ll be able to use these skills on new paths of creative photographic discover I really enjoy making multi-image composites on my pocket-sized image studio, and I am continually amazed at some of the things I can do!
All images on this page are composites that were created on various iPhones that I've had over the yeas.
But Wait! There's More!
In addition to the video on tips for photographing for collage and compositing projcts, each participant will recieve a collection of video tutorials covering the basics of working with the primary apps that we will be using in class. These videos cover nearly 2 hours of essential info to help you take what you learn in class and apply it to your own creative composite and collage projects!
$275. Class size is limited to 12 people.
