Joiner Photography involves the use of two or more separately taken images of a single scene to create a larger one by physically overlapping them or by digitally merging them. It differs from montage photography in that it looks to expand the area of view of the photograph as opposed to insert several elements into a given picture frame. From this point on there are many directions to take the image in terms of shape, viewpoints, subject, narrative, time and style. These all involve more personal choices by the creator and provide the potential for a more intimate and individually driven photograph.
This website is for the new digital photographer looking to develop their interest in the manipulation of images into more challenging and personal creations that extend the definition and purpose of what a photograph is deemed to be.
