Naming this box, the first in the Woven Triangles family, was a little misunderstanding. I originally labeled it number I since it was the first to be published, and I intended it to be decorated with a molecule of Woven Triangles Tessellation I. However, I decided to make the walls smoother, which resulted in a slight modification of the molecule. Therefore, I renamed the modified molecule Woven Triangles XIII. I also folded what I believed to be just a cleaner fold of this design. However, after closer examination, I found out, it was actually a bit different. So, in the end, I decided to rename this design (the first to be published) Box with Woven Triangles XVI. Box with Woven Triangles XIII is the version I later folded, and Box with Woven Triangles I is the one which actually uses the tessellation molecule without any modifications. You can tell the difference between XVI and XIII by looking at the edge between the box’s top and side walls. Talk about getting lost in my own designs.
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 slightest breeze potentially blowing the model away. It all makes a good exercise in patience and restraint, though.
