Today, I am sharing with you my tutorial for a DIY Father's Day photo montage.
You will need:
-Large cardboard or wooden letters-white works well if you're wearing colours or patterns; black will work well if you're wearing light-coloured clothing.
-A plain backdrop
-A tripod-or a volunteer you are happy to make silly faces at!!
That's it, folks!
Just think up a fun little message you want to send to your dad and spell it out! It took me an entire afternoon and lots of fiddling with the self-timer on my camera before I got the shots I wanted.
Then, being the amateur photographer that I am, I felt inclined to have a play on Photoshop (I use Elements) and I decided to go for a bit of colour-selection to really make the letters pop!
I pulled all my shots together onto one A3 sized canvas and fiddled until I had the look I wanted-depending on the length of your words you may have smaller or larger photos than I have.
I used a website I love called Photobox to print my montage onto a Matte A3 poster and, lucky for me, they were having a 60% off sale on all poster prints! How about that for timing! So I managed to get it for super cheap, but even at normal prices, they are very reasonable. I have used these guys a lot over the years for my A levels etc. and each time they have really delivered. Super-fast service and high-quality at that!
So there you have it. A fun, unique idea for your dad on Father's Day-if you're stuck for ideas, this is the DIY for you!
Happy Father's Day to all those fab dads out there!
