    Mike Campau is the post guy, Tim Tadder is the photographer (in case you missed that). He's got some great stuff.

    Top image (middle one looks bad to me, bottom one not so great either) - for compositing, you need to consider what the surroundings will be and match the lighting. He's done a typical 3-4 light setup (or similar) with two gridded lights on either side which create a highlight on her edges, making it easy to cut out and stand out in a composite (note that she doesn't look like she is really there).
    She's probably got one big octabox lighting her from front, above camera and a hair light.

    There's bts for both. Go read up on Joel Grimes, he has a ton of videos that goes over lighting and compositing, matching colors, etc. Kelby Training has all of them, worth the money.

    Start with the setup with the 3-4 lights, it'll make your life a billion times easier, just make sure you pay attention to the bg and lighting directions.
