I follow many photo bloggers who arrange their images in beautiful multi-panel layouts on their blog posts. I love the look of multiple panels, so I started presenting my work in the same way here. Ever since I started doing it, however, I’ve been asked the same question many, many times: “Hey Jonathan, how do […]Read More Tych Panel: Making Diptychs, Triptychs, and More
