Here's part two of my composite photo series. In this video I use Photomerge in Photoshop to create layers with layer masks to put together the composite photo. The awesome thing about using layer masks is you can add and remove parts of a photo just by using the paintbrush and painting them in or out of the photo.
In this photo I went up to the press box so I could shoot looking down onto the track. I panned along with the runner as he went up and over (actually through) the hurdle on the track.
Again, like I said in the last video, detail is key. Take your time when you're putting the layers together and when you're editing the individual layer masks. The more time you take and the more detailed you are, the better the final image will turn out.
