It's a good idea not get too close, that way you can crop & align the composition afterward.
But you may want to look through some photos you've already taken to find some triptych contenders.
Family Triptychs To Fit Any Wall Space
Triptychs can also be vertically orientated.
This can work really well for certain photos & also allows the print to sit on a narrower wall space.
Perfect for that top of the stairs wall or even certain entrances & hallways.
