Experimental portrait design is a hallmark of digital visual design with origins in traditional paper crafting even before scrapbooking become popular. The process in its self is easy: grab the portrait of your favorite subject, cut it up, and rebuild the structure of the subject by inserting other elements and illustrative effects. In no. 72 Portrait Collage, we’ll use our favorite photo editors to build a collage-style digital portrait. 

We’ll explore the following techniques:

  • Convert a color photo into a black and white photo using a Black/White Adjustment Layer
  • Fine-tune tones using a Levels Adjustment Layer
  • Define a selection using black point values
  • Define a selection using white point values
  • Develop a landscape structure as a collage within a subject
  • Insert floral crafts or illustrative elements as a collage within a subject
  • Accentuate the face using improved color and contrast
  • Define additional shape by extending the illustrative elements
  • Fill empty space with background pattern
  • Define the face using pattern blends
  • And create a 3-dimensional effect using shadowing
