About the Image(s)

I've seen some in-the-box photography online and wanted to try it. I did not have a box, so my husband built one for me. It clearly cannot fit a whole person - maybe next time.
I used two lights plus an off camera flash. I do not think that I changed my settings once I got started. I shot the younger woman with dark hair first. I am not clear why the wood frame looks different in different photos.
I spent more time than expected putting this together (I never was good at estimating).
I know that it could be lined up better.

I am hoping for tips or trips in either shooting or editing.

Very clever project. Your time and effort in producing this fantastic collage is very impressive. I smile and laugh when looking at the body language of all three players. I'm also impressed with your use of lighting, which is also done very well, something I'm not adept at all in using. I don't know the technic in constructing a collage, but regarding why the wood frame looks different in different photos; could the sizing of each photo used be different from each other? Great job Sylvia.   Posted: 07/09/2024 08:36:40

Thanks. It is hard getting people to pose like you want - I tried passing from block to block but nothing lined up (even with tiny marks on the side).
I am wondering if the cube got nudge just a bit in between my models.
And I actually struggled with the lighting. My non-photographer hubby helped me line up the shot and the lighting.   Posted: 07/09/2024 19:22:29
