Teaching Photoshop Techniques Via Replicating Movie Posters

I have always loved movie posters and teaching photography and retouching. Now I started to combine both as I started a new section on my Youtube -channel where I teach people how to re-create certain iconic movie posters in Photoshop. I’m using stock images to create my replications and try to find matching images in my final images. I definitely need to make compromises but I think I get pretty close to the originals. I’m not trying to replicate the copy part, but only the main image.

My goal is not to guide people to replicate images, but to teach various photoshop techniques as I explore ways of re-creating those images. I root for being original myself, but I think this is an interesting way of teaching and learning new ways to create a certain look.

I’m sure people will learn new Photoshop techniques while watching my efforts to try to replicate the look. I’m having lots of fun creating these images and learning myself. That is the main thing 😀
