A joiner is one picture made up of loads of smaller pictures. This is a technique which makes the image very interesting to look at and also allows you to make a much bigger picture of the scene as you can take pictures at loads of angles and just join them together. The reason to why this technique is called joiner is because this technique uses lots of pictures put together or joined together giving the name joiner.
In my opinion, i think that David Hockney invented this type of photography because he wanted to make new types of images that are not boring to look at, he wanted to make the image interesting, abstract and unique. He most likely did this type of photography because the cameras at the time he made these pictures were cameras that print the pictures instantly which ment no need for a printer. These types of cameras are called 'Polaroid'. This allowed him to take many pictures of one scene and just overlap the images one by one to create this technique.
I was inspired by David Hockney's technique so i deiced to have a crack at it as well.
This is how I made it:
I made this joiner by using an iPad to take lots of small pictures of one scene that i could see from out of the window. I then connect the iPad to an MacBook Pro and imported the pictures into iPhoto. This then allowed me to be able to import the pictures into Photoshop to be able to edit them. Luckily, Photoshop is so advanced that it does all the work for me, all i need to do is to go into File, Automate, Photomerge and the click on collage and select all the pictures you want and your done! This is what i got at the end of all that work. After i added the background colour and deleted pictures which were unnecessary to make it look better and neater.
