Box with Woven Triangles I

This origami box is decorated with a molecule of Woven Triangles Tessellation I (pictures of a larger tessellation coming up later). This is the first member of a family of tessellations I've been working on recently.

 

I've recently had to take some pictures without using a lightbox and this is an example of the issues this causes. This picture was taken in direct sunlight, so the shadows and overall contrast came out too strong. I was able to partially fix this in postprocessing but at the cost of losing some detail elsewhere. Someone with more experience could certainly have done it better, though. For a change, another picture, which I took in the shade, came out completely flat and uninteresting. This just shows how being able to control lighting is crucial to taking consistently good pictures. Taking pictures outdoors, of origami specifically, adds the frustration of having to watch out for even the slightests breeze potentially blowing the model away. It all makes a good exercise in patience and restraint, though.
