Juggling/Floating Photomontage – AP

Number of images? 1-3 depending on complexity (the one Mr. Lindroth is showing would be enough for one final image)

Before and after images required? YES

Screenshots of images open in Photoshop or Photopea with layers showing? YES

This assignment requires you to shoot different phases of the montage with the same background and using masks to reveal the subjects.  Screenshot evidence as you work on this montage are mandatory (see MrL’s album).  


Here is an album by Mr. Lindroth that shows the steps of this technique:

Some examples here:
