Narrative Graphic Collage Draft

Previously I posted pictures of objects that I would like to edit into one single photo but after working on the draft, I realized the idea that I came up with is actually a lot
harder to bring to life than I thought it would be. Although I would still like to do this for a project, I decided to put that one on hold and focus on one that was a bit more within my skill range… which is pretty novice at the moment.

I then started going through my SD cards and found the photos I took at my cousins wedding. It was very short and rushed but I snapped the photos that I could. I thought this would be a great opportunity to use the skills I’m acquiring in school to edit their wedding photos for them.

I started by using google to find collages and came up with a few wedding examples but I didn’t have those types of photos. I watched a few youtube tutorial’s showing how to use key shortcuts, the ruler and additionally I combined this tutorial with other
skills I picked up as I searched across on the internet.

I created this collage by creating square shapes with the rectangle tool. After I used the clipping mask feature to shape the photograph under the shapes creates with the rectangle tool.
In this photo I have only placed text over the photos but I would like to make it a bit more appealing to the eye in the final project. I definitely plan on changing up the shape and possibly putting the text in front of the photos using the clipping mask.

The hardest part of this project was finding photos that would work because I didn’t get the chance to take a lot of staged photos and the ones I did were rushed. Because i’m not satisfied with this either I will probably end up changing the project again. Really, I just turned in this copy of the draft so I would receive credit for doing it… not because I am happy with the work that I’ve done.
