    These are very basic compositions using layers. You should try some basic/beginner tutorials about using layers in Photoshop or Illustrator. There are lots on youtube. – Billy Kerr May 4 at 9:02

This is, overall, basic layer construction....

Use the shape tools to add shapes on a layer above a photograph.

Then add text to a layer above the shape you drew.

The blue links are for Adobe's help sections for Photoshop regarding these features. If you are unfamiliar with how to do any of these steps, please click the links and review how the features operate.

In Illustrator, construction is essentially the same but the toolsets are different. You don't need new layers in Illustrator. The objects will simply stack on top of one another. However, since the basis of the entire image is a raster photograph, this type of stand-alone image is generally best accomplished in Photoshop.
