Photography and Photoshop montage

Self-imposed challenge, create a series of magazine covers from scratch...

Photo shoot

This part was a lot of fun! I hired a Cirque du Soleil athlete to be the main charater in this project. I also photographed all the objects that I incorporated within the cover designs.

Design planning

My goal was to replicate the magazine cover right down to the smallest details. My goal was to produce a cover fit for the magazine. I was very happy with the results.

Photo retouching and Photoshop montage

Once all the elements were gathered, I proceeded with my favorite part - the photo retouching and the montage of the covers.
