I'm working on a project that's 11"x17" tall, has the bottom 1/5th reserved for the logo/calendar elements and the top 4/5ths for some sort of collage-esque image.
Basically, I have six photos I need to somehow stylistically position in the top 4/5ths. Most of the photos are vertically-oriented and all are essentially photos of models with mixed-colour backgrounds (I.e., a pain in the butt to mask out).
The initial idea was to erase part of each images background so that it's kind of a collage -- but the further I get into this, the worse it's looking.
Does anybody have any suggestions for either: a. Fitting a lot of vertical images into a a space coherently b. Making photo collages look at all professional
