I do a good bit of compositing myself and I have some animated gif's breaking down some image builds on my blog. The color tones are most likely a layer filled with a particular color and then set to a certain blend mode. You can get different effects depending on the mode and you can adjust the strength with the opacity. Using this method is one of many ways to help the seamless look of a composited image.

Re: Erik Almas

qinter, really like your work, great portfolio, i hope to start doing some compositing soon, one thing i want to know about is how do you get the lighting from one photo to match another or is this something you think about when taking the 2 shots?

Re: Erik Almas

D- It's usually many more than just 2 shots but you do have to consider the light source and its general direction. Just as important is shadow as it also directly relates to the same light source and correctly placed, reaffirms the illusion of reality within the composite. Once you decide on the direction of light you can use several techniques for consistent lighting within the composite: Photograph in studio using controlled lighting per your specs, flip the object(depending on concept layout), or use dodge/burn effects to name a few. The D&B is much easier accomplished when the object(can be background, sky) is photographed in more of an even or "flat" lighting situation. Also, remember when compositing a night or indoor image you can have multiple light sources that need to be considered.

Thanks for the kind words as well and I hope I've helped a little...
