He then shares three key tips for capturing successful, simple source images every time–shoot in open shade, photograph from the waist up, and make room for your subject. Finally, he covers how to effectively composite your image in Adobe Photoshop, from masking to refining edges and making final adjustments, to get just the look you want.
