Photo Essay with Diptic

Photo essays are usually a series of pictures related by a theme or a place or a subject. I’ve experimented with collapsing the series into a collage.

There are many tools that you can use for this. Fuzel Pro, Frametastic and Diptic are all great for this.  For my purposes, I’ve used Diptic for a while. After looking at the other options, I decided to continue.

The series I am working on is about the mixed use of land in an area where I often go running. Here’s one experiment  to express that in a collage:

Diptic has a handy filter feature which allows you to make each photo in the collage have the same color cast and I used it to make sure these black and white’s all looked the same. This version doesn’t support the point because both the subject and the form are so consistent.

Here’s a different version:

A third attempt from a painterly point of view:

And lastly, a more straight forward version:

In each photo, there’s some man-made structure in the midst of the landscape. Each structure indicates a different use.

As you look at these 4 different photo essays in the form of the collage…

    I love the images together but am distracted by the line weight in the last one and by the shapes of the images in the second. So, I like the first and third.
