To create a Clash of Cultures by creating your own Photo montage, combining images from Beijing, China and Yarmouth, Maine, USA;
- To further develop your Photoshop knowledge and skills;
- To create a “surreal” landscape by montaging a variety of photographs;
The successes to this project for me were learning more about photoshop and the overall final product. Even though we had used photoshop before, I learned many more of the tools. I am really proud on how the final product turned out because I think it incorporates both cultures well. The difficulties would have to be where I decided to put everything, and erasing. I know it doesn’t have to be realistic, but I wanted to put everything somewhere that made some kind of sense. Also, erasing can be very frustrating and time consuming when you have to zoom in and get every little detail, while still making sure it doesn’t look messy and keeping straight edges.
