This week we began a new project. For this project I asked you to bring in some photographs to collage with. My demonstrations will be covering some of the challenges that we face when trying to create a believable environment out of multiple photographs.
In this first demonstration I talked about the need to align perspective in all the photographic elements you will be collaging. This involves finding the horizon line (eye-level) in each of the photographs we are collaging with and making sure they are all aligned in the collage. This doesn't have to be very precise but the more dissimilar the perspective is between collage elements - the less they appear to occupy the same space.
Next week I will focus on reconciling light logic and color. Make sure you bring what you started today with you to class next week.
