Portrait Montage Using Different Backgrounds

Create a portrait (this could be a self-portrait) with a collage of different backgrounds by using different layers and arranging them accordingly in Photoshop.

Begin by creating a patchwork or collage-type background with a variety of other backgrounds. You can use different filters, etc. to make this even more visually stimulating. When you have completed this collage, FLATTEN the background. Next, you can find your large size portrait/self-portrait and cut it out. Drag it on top of the collage background and FLATTEN again when totally complete. Remember, you can't move layers around after flattening and saving, so make sure everything is where you want it before flattening your final piece.
