Composite Montage

A composite montage is made by overlaying two different photographs to create a new visual image. This technique works well with images that contain a strong texture or pattern, such as stones, ripples in sand, or grasses.  Weathered wood, stucco and rock surfaces can also be very effective. Once you’ve collected a number of suitable images, the process involves experimenting with overlaying different images until a pleasing combination is found.
