Compositing in Photoshop: an In-Depth Look

On this video photographer Gavin Hoey demonstrates how to create a composite image made from two different images (a model and a background in this case). Hoey goes over different aspects in depth including combining several images to form the background, saving and working with TIFF files in Camera RAW and using various tools to properly combine the model image with the background.

You can find the free rays of light brushes Hoey mentioned in the video on the following link.
