The Barnes & Noble Review
Spend time with this book, and you’ll realize just how much expression and creativity you can pack into a photomontage. It’ll inspire you. It’ll also give you the skills you need to do it yourself.

Creating Photomontages with Photoshop: A Designer's Notebook presents nine masterful photomontages, deconstructing each one to its raw elements, and showing exactly how the digital artist conceived and assembled it. You’ll gain insight into everything from finding locations and working with models to retouching, special effects, and integrating images into a seamless whole.

This is work you haven’t seen before, created by France’s most remarkable digital artists, with explanations in English for the first time. It’ll help you create work nobody’s seen before: for advertising, posters, magazines, or simply to satisfy your own personal passion. Bill Camarda, from the March 2005 Read Only
