Project Description

Your perfect breakfast collage

31cb61f1

For this class project we will be making a collage of two pictures of your breakfast that would complement each other. Collage of two (or three, or however many you like =)) pictures is a great way to help you see the same subject differently. To get two different pictures from the same setting you will have to move around the subject, make use of close ups and different angles, appreciate colors and your setting. 

Process steps are as important as the final result, because they teach you how to see the composition and how to improve it. So, along with final project, it would be great to see your step by step process - adding objects or subtracting them, creating negative space or filling it with props, changing focus and zoom.

Most of all I encourage you to have fun  =)
