I want to achieve this in illustrator but the solution I see is CTRL+7 which work only for one shape... In photoshop, you just need you clip as many as you want...

Simply copy the large circle -- Ctrl/Commad-c

Select None -- Ctrl/Command-Shift-A

Paste in in front -- Ctrl/Command-f

Select All -- Ctrl/Command-a

Create a clipping mask -- Ctrl/Command-7
