Straight out of the camera?: Not at all. You might think so since Crewdson shoots 8x10 film. However, if you watch the documentary, when talking about post-production, he mentions taking 40-50 exposures of each scene and how they are then scanned for compositing. In one scene, the artist is talking to a retoucher about removing a light fixture, putting in parts of one image into another, moving people from this shot to the next etc. The fact that the camera position is always fixed makes it easier, but it's still done.
