Over the past two weeks, I’ve spent untold hours looking through photos for some “mood boards” I’m assembling at work. Along the way I’ve happened on a few that don’t fit my company’s corporate standards—but which deserve to be seen nonetheless.
Yesterday, I featured some gorgeous light paintings. Today it’s all about collages.

But it had never occurred to me to either let the images’ edges overlap, as Sebastian Waters has done …

I love that both photographers used similar techniques, yet achieved such different results. And I honestly can’t decide which effect I like best.
Want to try making a photo collage of your own (or just curious about how it’s done)? This tutorial explains the basics. Enjoy!
