Did you see...

Manic Movie Monday

Spent a while on Friday night trying to get a half decent photo of a heron. Not a keen lover of birds but herons make a great model for a newbie wildlife photographer as they tend to stay still for long periods of time.

This one didn’t want to co-operate though and insisted moving and making me cross a bridge over and over again. My goal is to one day have a photo of a heron in flight, no wait, I have loads of them. My goal is to get a photo of a heron in flight, and in focus.

But anyhoo, thats not what todays blog is about…

Online Tutorial


Corey Barker recreates the poster for the new Star Trek film using images of the Photoshop Guys.






Recreating something is a great way to learn Photoshop. It can be quite shocking too! I recently saw a poster for a Ghost Walk at a castle that had no more than an outer glow, emboss and a blurred cloud layer.

Ok, before you lynch me, I know it is the design that is important not the execution, and for that reason I believe that designers are under valued. (Phew, I think I might just have gotten away with it)

Leading on from Planet Photoshop’s tutorial, here are some links to movie poster sites, with a few of my favorites.


Have a great Monday, see you tomorrow!
