I don’t normally sit through and watch tutorials like this very often, but this particular ‘behind-the-scenes’ look was particularly fascinating to me.
Fstopper Lee Morris did a photo shoot with a 1968 Camaro. He was giving it to his father for Christmas and decided it would be awesome to give him the news of this new car with a photo of it.
Morris shows all sorts of cool tips and tricks, pulling back the veil of composite photography and the power of Photoshop. Take a look at these before and after shots to see exactly what he did:

I think it’s easy to put a lot of pressure on video editors, graphic artists, and photographers to produce top-notch quality work. When you get a deeper look into some of these fields, you realize that there is a lot more work, time and money that goes behind it.
