This week marked the final deadline to submit images to PDN’s Faces. Above are the images I entered after finally getting around to building the master files from a series of self portraits I shot for my site last summer. They were submitted individually but seem to work well as a diptych. Recently I figured out a cool way to build custom diptychs in Adobe Lightroom. It is just a simple trick that involves creating a custom document size in LR’s Print module. This makes experimenting with image parings more intuitive, and eliminates the need to use PhotoShop for such a simple task. Should I demo this in a tutorial? Let me know and I’ll consider sharing the how-to in a future post.
Note: I made dozens of calls to lumber yards searching for a few sheets of wood paneling last summer. They just don’t supply this good stuff anymore. Eventually I scored at a salvage yard that resells material from tear downs and demolitions. Oh yeah, Devo likes carrots and bully sticks.
Update: Here is a link to the tutorial I created on how to create diptychs in Adobe Lightroom
