I was asked to take some photos for a going away gift for our church choir director. She is also an organist and is in love with our church organ. So I took some photos of the organ. So as not to have a boring photo straight on of a dark organ, I had to be arsty and make it a collage. Here is the end result.
We printed it at 11x14 (or whatever size is one bigger than 8x10) and put a cream/brown matte on it. Then all the members of the choir signed the matte. It was quite lovely.
As a secondary gift and kind of a joke about our church building, I did a photo of the building. I created an overlay collage, again to make it interesting. I did a multiple exposure of the church name on the front door over a photo of the building.
We printed it 5x7 and framed it without a matte. Just something small so she doesn't forget the circus tent church building.
