Photoshop Collage: Experimentation

During a tutorial as a group, we were shown how to stitch various images together to create a collage image of a designated topic. So i decided to have a go myself. As a starting point i wanted to go for something along the lines of an apocalyptic wasteland. When i started this, i began searching for desert roads such as the one below;

After i tinted the colour balance of the image so that it would appear to be in a ‘serene’ nuclear environment, with an orange glow to give it that apocalyptic vibe. Additionally i wanted the viewer to have visual conformation that it’s that specific type of scene i tried creating, so i added a mushroom cloud into the distance. With this i didn’t want to leave it as a deserted nuclear envisioned clear road, so i added the generic apocalyptic zombie hoard. Now i wanted to add the hoard marching up the road but i stumbled onto a great up close picture of some actors near camera posing in character. So i decided to edit this and add it near screen so it put more focus onto the zombies, whilst still maintaining the apocalyptic essence i was trying to capture.

I’m rather content with the final result, although i’m not as experienced with the colour saturation as i’d like to be. Although it has the basic essence i was trying to capture, enough to make it vaguely ‘believable’. Overall i believe this was a fairly interesting exercise and has definitely shown me the use of conceptualizing ideas through the use of meshing different preexisting objects.
