I was stopped in my tracks because I think they are really wonderful as they demonstrate a view from outside the box, and they contain multiple layers in each image. You have a foreground, a middle and background, and it's not a flat picture that Joe Blogs took.

The problems I had with this style of photography were:
- My Flash – it kept switching on when it detected a low level of light so I had to find the menu switch and turn it off.
- I was originally standing too far back in the frame and putting too much information into the images, so I learned to move closer
- People kept coming up and asking what was i doing because they thought I was a security breach. So I smiled, explained my arts project and they were happy.
- My lens wasn’t wide enough to really bend the perspective but I solved this by tilting it and holding away so that I didn’t become reflected in the picture.
