Life in a Box

By ColinT-B
I have to confess that this is not my idea.
I saw an image here on EPZ some time ago now, I cant remember whether it was as an upload or as a feature.
And I cant remember the name of the person who uploaded the image (old age creeping in) so I have to send my apologies.

The original image didn't have the model stood on the side so that is a slight adaptation on my part.

The image was put together using 9 separate shot of the kids in the boxes, and then the model on the side was from a separate image shot with the model just leaning along the empty box.
all put together in Photoshop Elements, one of the hardest things was aligning the boxes, this just about took the longest time.
But it was fun to shoot and Ive enjoyed putting it all together, I just hope the customer likes it.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

OK not your idea but very well put together. I just feel the boxes and model are "floating on air" as the image lacks a base. Additional shadows may help, otherwise a tighter crop. It's nearly there!

Still a good effort, reminds me of the "Professional Widow" music video by Tori Amos, or a "The Box" album cover by Sam Brown. Also I prefer "Living in a Box" as a title, as I'm a music fan in case you hadn't guessed!

Its a fair point you make Andrew and if Im honest something I never really gave much thought to.
Might try and add a little shadowing to see if it enhances the image.

Thanks for all of the nice comments guys, I really appreciate your feedback.
