Sadly, this seems to be the standard procedure for almost all cast photos since Adobe Photoshop got cheap and decent enough at editing. Editing people together in a group shot used to be tedious and expensive, which is probably why they preferred to arrange them like that back in the day, while today it's just faster and more effective to shoot everyone seperately if they don't need to interact in a photograph. It's been this way since the mid-late-00s I feel.I don't like how each actor has been photographed separately and then photoshopped in. I know there could be some Covid-19 restrictions in play but give me a proper group photo any day.
Wow. Great pick up there. This image emphasizes my point and could explain in part why the cast of new Dynasty have never quite gelled. I would expect at some point in filming a number of the actors would be on set, heck the Carrington clan have had enough parties during it's short run to include a photographer on set to take a group photo. This latest shot illustrates how really cheap The CW publicity department is...if it exists at all.Same clothes but the colours are a bit different shaded.
