Project 4 Montage

MakenziHolland-P4-Train

  1. Description: Spiritually themed Montage project
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, Steps taken while designing): First I sketched like 3 pages worth of sketches to find out what I wanted to do for this assignment. I had a vision of what I wanted but it didn’t completely match up. I used Photoshop to assemble the photo montage, skimmed the internet for photos. I wanted there to be balance in the points of focus so the images are separated out. I got rid of the grey background behind the woman and faded the hard edges with Layer Masking. I sharpened the image with the filters, none of the other filters had  place on the project.
  3. Message: Nature and God are interconnected
  4. Audience: Young adults and teens
  5. Top Thing Learned: I learned how to mess with the layer masking. It matters which photo is selected to manipulate it. I also learned some more shortcuts and used the A LOT. I learned the move tool shortcut, which is (V), and also how to switch the colors on the brushes with (X). These helped me move through my project a lot faster and with less frustration.
  6. Filter / Colorization used and where it was applied: Sharpen, applied to water background
  7. Color scheme and color names: Split Complementary- Blue, Green, Brick
  8. Title Font Name & Category: Sarina Regular, Script downloaded from Typekit

    Wow, very interesting design. I like the cool feel of the water. I would make them blend into each other more though so that her hair makes the waves more visible. Also I would do the same with the trees. The font is hard to read but it is very cool how you contrasted the different words to make them stand out as more important. Nice work!
