Create Composites (or Photomontages)

Complex Composites: Two Samples

Compositing is the process and result of making a composite photograph by cutting elements from photos, editing them, and adding them to a master photograph, making complex visual masterpieces driven by your creative vision. Today, composite pictures (a.k.a. photomontages) are created using image-editing software such as Adobe Photoshop. Each of the following composite examples shows the individual elements to be "cut," the master background photo on which the cut elements will be placed, and the finished composite.

Whether your new composite will be simple or complex, you're about to create a visual illusion, one that isn't physically possible. You'll soon appreciate the joy and amazement of your next (or first) composite.

Below are two complex composite samples that Warren enjoyed creating. But, if you want to create a simple composite or a special composite, click the appropriate thumbnail of the following two.

Complex Composite Sample #2

After completing a Bible study about Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount" (Matthew 5 through 7), Warren was motivated to create a photomontage depicting what Jesus tells people to treasure in life (Matthew 6:19–24).Treasures in Heaven
19"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

22"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy,[a] your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

24"No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."
Acquiring two financial-greed images (from Corbis Images), Warren combined them with a sky background image and scripture text to create the composite shown below, highlighting the message of Matthew 6:24b.


Warren chose a red devil carricature image to use in this composite.

Money and the devil's shadow

Warren also chose an image of blue dollar signs to add to his composite #6.

Blue dollar signs

For the composite's background, he selected a unique sunset image that suggested heaven above.

A heavenward sunburst as the background

Here, all the image elements have been incorporated into composite #6, as shown below.
