A Flower Diptych

Weeping Cherry Tree Diptych
University of Montana Arboretum, Missoula

After you've spent a morning or afternoon at your favorite flower garden, you are likely to come home with many pictures. What can you do with them beyond sharing your story shots?

If you've taken lots of variations of your subject, look for ways to display them together by creating a diptych or triptych. A diptych pairs two related images in a single frame; a triptych combines three. You can create such a layout using presentation software like Powerpoint or Keynote, word processing software like Pages or Word, or photo organizing software such as Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or Lightroom Classic. There are even phone apps like Google Photos (works on both Android & iPhones) that let you create a collage of multiple photos in one.

Come explore the ways you can expand your collection of flower photographs this spring. Photograph Flowers on the UM Campus starts May 9, 2024, at the Lifelong Learning Center in Missoula, Montana. All cameras are welcome. See this page for registration info.
