David Hockney's photomontages are different than my photomontages because to me, his photomontages look a little cartoonish. What I mean by "cartoonish" is that they don't have a real looking quality. If you look at them most look over saturated and the colors look unnatural. You might have a different opinion, but to me his colors look like he edited it to look like computer generated colors. I created my photomontages with the intention to look real, but still have enough color to pop out at you. Look at my photomontages and comment down bellow to give me feedback on my work!
Some images can send positive and negative messages to the person looking at the art or a picture, and they wouldn't even know it. There are some colors that just make you feel good, bad, happy, ecstatic and so on. For instance, what do you think when you see black. Do you see evil? Death? Comfort? Try that with all of the colors you can think of like green. Usually, green, you associate with good. For me white is associated with clean and neat. You can also use symbols to make people feel things. Look at some photos on the internet, see if you can find a symbol.
In my final photomontage I took a picture of pine trees. The message I wanted you guys to see in my photomontage is that I do well in groups. I am also sharp, or smart, and that's why they're pine trees. The last thing I wanted you to see was, I am tough on the inside or I have a strong will. I edited the pine trees to make the colors pop out at you even more, because in the original picture it looked a little dull. I changed the saturation to make the blue look bluer, (is that a word?) and the green greener. I don't like the look at the bottom of the trees though, for me it's too colorful and the colors just look too random. That's me though, I'm a colorful person.
