- Matching the images which you bring together in a composite is very important. Colour, tone and saturation need to match, otherwise the images look wrong, and look like they have just been plonked together, rather than belonging together in a believable way.
- Always match the subject to the background, as the background sets the scene for the lighting, which should also be correct on the subject. (Ref).
