About This Course

Photomontage is an art form that merges photography and imagination, allowing for the creation of surreal images far beyond what is possible through traditional photography alone. However, the thought of creating a complex photomontage project can be intimidating for many photographers, especially those who are new to this particular style of artistic expression. It's a creative process that involves various stages - from conceptualizing an idea, shooting, selecting and preparing the shots, to photo processing and collage. The final result may often diverge from what was originally envisaged.

But fear not! I am Felix Barjou, a professional photographer, and I am here to guide you on this journey. It doesn't matter whether you have any prior knowledge of photomontage or not; this training is designed to take you from the basics to advanced photomontage techniques, all in a step-by-step manner.

Conceptualizing the Idea

Every art project starts with an idea. In photomontage, the idea is crucial because it determines the kind of shots you need, how they should be composed, and how they will eventually fit together. During this training, we will discuss how to come up with compelling ideas and how to plan your shoots around them.

The Shooting Process

The shooting process is where your idea starts to take shape. In this stage, you'll learn the importance of proper lighting, composition, and shooting angles. You will also discover how to create a cohesive look across multiple shots, taking into consideration factors such as perspective, lighting, and depth of field.

Selection and Preparation of Shots

This stage involves choosing the best shots for your photomontage and preparing them for the editing process. Here, you'll learn how to critically review your shots, deciding which ones to keep and which ones to discard. You'll also learn how to crop, cut out, resize, and rotate your selected images to fit your intended photomontage.

Image Processing and Collage

In the image processing stage, you'll learn how to adjust color balance, contrast, brightness, and other elements to improve your images' quality. In the collage stage, you'll learn how to seamlessly combine your processed images, aligning and blending them to create a visually convincing final image. These stages involve mastering Photoshop's advanced features, which might seem daunting at first. However, I assure you that with step-by-step guidance, you will find it much more manageable and even enjoyable.

Advanced Photoshop Techniques

One of the highlights of this training is learning advanced Photoshop techniques for creating stunning, surreal images. These techniques involve using various Photoshop tools and features in unique ways to manipulate your images further, adding artistic effects that bring your photomontage to life.

By the end of this training, you'll be armed with a wealth of practical knowledge and skills that will not only help you progress in shooting and photo retouching but also boost your creativity. You will be well-equipped to tackle complex photomontage projects and turn your creative ideas into stunning pieces of art.

Remember, anyone can succeed in creating a photomontage with the right guidance and perseverance. And that's exactly what this training offers - the guidance you need and the encouragement to keep experimenting and learning. So, without further ado, let's embark on this exciting journey of photomontage together. Welcome to my training!
