So about a year or so ago this photo got leaked onto Pinterest and went viral. Since then I've had countless people contact me wondering how you create this photo. So I figured I'd give you guys a quickie tutorial on how to make this super easy frame-in-frame photo.
A few things to remember before taking your photos:
-Size of the frame - This will come in handy during editing.
-Be sure to hold the frame according to how you are shooting the photos. For example; if you take a portrait shot (vertical), make sure everyone is holding the frame like a portrait.
-Ask each person holding the frame to try to keep their fingers clear of the inside of the frame. This makes editing so much faster.
You will take each person's photo while they hold the empty frame except the person who will be in the last frame. In my photo this was the toddler, Sofia. Sofia didn't need to hold a frame because obviously she is the last in the row. I actually ended up using a quick snapshot we got later in the day. You can use any photo you want here.
Once you pick out your photos you should be looking at something like this. The next step is just a simple copy and paste act in Photoshop. As long as you crop each photo to the size of the frame before copying it you should able to create your final image within minutes.
Hope this helps everyone who has been wanting to try this! Let me know if you have any questions!
