3. Place the pictures into an InDesign document crop them into small squares
4. Create more copies by dragging them while holding down the ‘ALT’ key
5. Arrange them so that they make one combined scene/photograph
6. Hand in your final photo and answer these questions
a. What was your first idea of your cubism photograph?
b. What were some of your challenges in putting the photographs together?
c. How did you overcome/solve these obstacles?
