Creating a Montage

Purpose of this workshop

  • Demonstrating principles of using selection techniques
  • Creating and using selection Photoshop
  • Creating and using combined images in a Photoshop image

Final Result


Gherkin building (1)

I began choosing a primary image (1). I thought something looking like a wasps’ nest and I found this building in London called Gherkin building.






Wasp before and after has been cutted (2)

For the secondary image I found a picture of a wasp near his nest. I cutted it with different instruments, pen and magic wand tools (2).

Than I transfered the wasp’s picture on the primary image and resized and flipped it (3).







After I began to regulate saturation and luminosity and I worked with burn and dodge tool on midtones and shadows to try finding the same light (3).







Than I found a sky image (4) with more clouds to put on the background. I want to give more impact. So I desaturated it and with the eraser I tried to mix these two pictures (5).










After I worked more on lights with burn and dodge tools tools to find a perfect combination and also I erased the  wasp’s middle leg because I think it is better looks like more realistic (6).
