Experimenting with Photo Montage in Photoshop

This week in my photoshop class we are learning photo montage. The project is to combine at least three pictures. The most difficult part of this project so far is choosing a direction and images. The choices are wide open! Too many choices makes my head spin!

Below are four photo that I took during some of my Creatively Fit walks over the past year.

A pretty horse...

A winding path at a local golf course...
The lights on my dashboard at night...
A very cool stone pathway at Bok Gardens...

This collage made in picasa will do for Mosaic Monday over at Little Red House. But I'm afraid won't do for my photoshop class.
So, let's mix it up a bit. Add some masks, layers, smart objects, adjustment layers, filters and poof!


Ok, well it's kind of like a bad dream BUT the best way to learn is to dive right in and play, have fun and experiment!

Let's twist things a little more...


This is just a warm up. I hope to get much better! Practice, practice practice!!!

That is very cool! I wish I had (and knew how to use) Photoshop! I love the mosaic, but agree... that probably wouldn't do well in the class. :)

Stopping by from SITS!
