Creating a Poster in Photoshop

Today we take a great image from our contest winner Angelo, and turn it into a graphic poster. We chose the Sons of Anarchy because of the simple design and the fact that the main element is a person on a dark motorcycle. To be honest I have never seen the show and don’t even know if it sucks, but the poster is great.

    awesome episode!

  • Omar Perea

    Well, this isn’t an image of “someone,” but of “something.” It was photographed next to a large, tile looking glass window. I’m not sure what I would like to see done, but I feel like it’s missing that extra ‘WOW factor” that Aaron is so amazing at!

  • Omar Perea

    Well, this isn’t an image of “someone” but of “something.” I photographed it next to a large, tile glass window in my bathroom. I’m not sure what i would like to see done to it, but it feels like it’s missing that “WOW factor” that Aaron is so amazing at!

  • Vick Doultani

    Shot this against the window.

  • Johnny Viscidous Cancrena

    time to photograph a lot of textures, i suppose!!

  • AngeloDau

  • AngeloDau

  • Anantpal Singh Saluja

    Here’s my submission to this week’s contest. Cheers!

  • Tom Simone

     Here’s a picture of a couple’s dog that I shot at a wedding recently. I figure there’s probably quite a lot that could be done to tidy it up and make it stronger. Thanks, Tom.

  • Rossfergusonphotography

    Shoot with a gorgeous dancer from this weekend. Lots to be done as I was unable to get the angle right to avoid shooting the buildings below and the reflection in the window. Would love to see what you can do with it! Thanks, Ross

  • rossfergusonphotography

    Sorry – don’t think the photo uploaded before…

  • Johnny Viscidous Cancrena

    i prefer to have always my own material

  • prutatol

    Hope you like it….I know I do. Cheers all

  • Johnny Viscidous Cancrena

    My Submission to this week’s contest, a shot of my nephew. I had another one but had already edited it into a BW so wasn’t much left to do to it.

    It will be a pleasure have u just looking at my image. 
    Hope i win, but if i’m not just happy to collaborate and see learn watching the tutorial. 
    Did this picture with a model friend of mine. Just used the window light coming through a big window behind her. Cheers. 

  • Bo Lelewel

    shot with window light only…

  • MichaelSantini

    Here’s my submission for “window light”

  • Brandon

    This was an image I had the PRIVILEGE of shooting for a wonderful model, Ms. Erika Chase! I know she has such a bright future in this industry, and it would mean the world to her to find out she won a contest to have her image uniquely edited image by someone as respected in the business as yourself. I wish you all had met her in person so you could experience her bright, jubilant, spunky personality. Selfless, unlike any other person I’ve ever met. Something like this would mean the world to her. I’m attaching the RAW image we shot some months ago for this week’s contest. I really hope it catches your eye.

  • Brandon

    Raw image wouldn’t upload (too large). So here’s the jpeg sized down to the file size requirements.

  • Shantel Crawford Rich

    This shot has warm side lighting from a rear window with sun and front lighting from an open door.  While I like the warmth that the rear lighting brings to the photo…I can’t quite get her skin color balanced (too much red) to make it look “correct” and would love to see how you tackle something like this.   I have the RAW as well if you want to start with that.

    My Submission to this week’s contest, I only ever use natural light (mainly because I can’t afford lighting equipment! :) )

     My  submission to this week’s contest is a self-portrait photo shot  from window light though blinds to capture a more distinct pattern of line/strips to another object.  This photography’s light was not enhanced or edited in Photoshop.  However, I did combined a couple of similar photographs to create such double/triple exposure. I hope this is a great example of window light with a twist! ^^

  • Tom Simone

     good one

  • Gabriele

    Here’s my submission for this week’s contest. I wanted to do something outside the schemes, so I decided to try my first composit to practice what I’ve learnt from your and others’ tutorials. This made me realize that there’s a fair distance between theory and application. :D
    I’m not very happy with the result, but this is the better I can do now. I will surely develop this idea much better as my skills will grow.
    Of course the original photos have all been shot in window light.

    Friends took a look at the site and liked what I saw, but unfortunately I do not speak English well and not be able to enjoy all your content. I know this is my problem, but I would ask, of course, there are possibilities that put the subtitles because it would help quite a lot of people like me, who enjoyed the site, but without the domain in the mother tongue.
    A big hug and success for the entire team PHLEARN.
