I have been experimenting with different templates and layouts in Photoshop, gathering new skills and figuring out ways to present photos in a series that collectively tell the story better than a single image, so today I will take you back to Nantes France. Around the city we found several art installations as we wandered around the streets, visiting historic sites and tourist attractions. The Elsa Tomjowiak’s art installation was at the Theatre Graslin.
Elsa Tomjowiak hung long strips of painted plastic in the very large front entrance to the opera house, the colour transforms the all white hallway with a rainbow of colour that dances and moves as the sunlight changes intensity and direction through the day.
I thought these images would work well in this template. The first image is the view of the opera house as we first discovered it. Walking up to the front, the colour banners hanging down between the all white columns. As we approached the building curiosity drew us inside to find that the banners were also draped inside and we could witness how the colour had transformed the all white hallway. After spending time in the now colourful front hallway we wandered out of the building to find a group of young people on the steps, using the opera house as a background and singing to the people as they sat and enjoyed their lunch in the square.
Do you think that using these images to tightly together makes the collage to busy? I would appreciate any feedback you might have on using templates for storytelling.
