The Making Of A Back To The Future Holiday Card

My buddy, Eric Doggett, is one of those commercial photographers that I want more people in the community to know about because he is very talented. Every holiday season, Eric will create a Christmas card using composites of himself and his family. This year, he took a page right from one of my favorite movies, Back To The Future. He created a fantastic in-depth tutorial video on how he created this year's holiday image form scratch.

Eric Doggett is based out of Austin, Texas and does some really amazing post production and composite work on his photoshoots. We met while I was teaching at a Photoshop World conference in Las Vegas a couple of years back. He suggested I check out his site and I was happy I did. He has some really great behind the scenes shots and tutorials on his blog and I have definitely learned some new things about post-production from him.

I hope Eric takes the time to submit more in-depth tutorials to us in the future!

These are great! I just started this tradition at my house. Here's my first.

Luv to see others work. 

Always fun starting with a blank canvas a week before Christmas with everything else going on leading up to Christmas and managing to come up with something fun and unique that shares our experiences at Christmas
