Avoiding The "Mish-Mash"

We've all seen those grids of photography incorporated in a layout to portray multiple aspects of a concept, or even worse, the scrapbook collage of images thrown together to attempt to do the same. These images came from a thematic calendar that dealt with ecological issues and added hints about how we can reduce our footprint. From water conservation, to shopping for produce locally, to recycling, to planting wisely, to options for plastic bags... When the tone of the piece permits, Photoshop, and a little thinking (and juggling). allows a different, smoother method of portraying multifaceted visual imagery.


  1. A picture is worth a thousand words... I tried to explain to someone who hadn't seen your post how I found the juxtapositions interesting. It was difficult. Seeing makes it simple. Explaining makes it complex.

    I liked it enough to talk about it :)

  2. Thanks, Lynn Marie - appreciate the compliment!
