I had easy access to a large variety of Musical Instruments that were an ideal and interesting still life subject. The first digital success was of a Yamaha Classical Guitar, propped up against a radiator at shared studio on St-Laurent Blvd in the Plateau area of Montreal. The various parts of the image were photographed from different angles and then all the images were reassembled in Photoshop. I started shooting montages with a Canon d60 then the 10d, followed by a 20d and onto the 5D’s. The technique is now second nature, and relies on multiple images of a scene or subject taken from a variety of different angles to optimize the desired result distortion. The images have become larger with each new camera generation. To date the largest image I have created is in the range of 3 meters by 10 meters made from over 300 pieces.
