This Box Experience entry is how to overcome the obstacles if any! :)
Building the box, no wait... building this rectangle was easier than I thought it would be. While I'm not impressed that I bought blueprints for $20 for a box, it did wind up being fabulous.
SET UP AND SHOOT
I have an Einstein Light directly behind my camera which is on a tripod. I shot this at f9. If you need furthers settings just message me.
Here is a video of our test shoot! Click the box below!!!
I will be recording the composite edit and placing it here. I should have it done by Friday sometime. The edit was not too bad. I should have definitely made the box template first but I was too excited to see the sample.
If you're going to have anything hanging out of the box like a leg or arm, keep it to a minimum like 2 or 3 shots like this. It was a challenge collaging them together. Making them make sense.
If there is a foot dangling be sure to add the right shadow to it.
Dangling hair was not fun. You'd have to be advanced in photoshop or something. I was not a fan of the work involved in that.
Have it planned out prior especially if your doing minis... Know what you're going to use prop wise!
Also I told my clients that I am including the images separate. This was a bad idea! This is a composite and should be kept that way.
I am offering Christmas cards for a print option. I will update as that progresses! :)
UPDATE: There was a man named James in one of the groups I belong to and he suggested using a measuring tape to measure the height for the camera position and I suggest using the cameras internal grids. Good luck this has been fun so far!
