1 - on each Apollo lunar mission, there was the Mission Commander, the LEM Pilot, and the CSM Pilot. (Notice no co-pilots. No astronaut wants to be
called a co-pilot). The CSM pilot ALWAYS stayed with the Command Service Module, and thus, had the poorest view of anyone on the astronauts who were
on the moon.
2 - The Lunar Excursion Module was designed to house only two crewmembers, even though three scrunched in there during Apollo 13. There was a post
earlier on the temperature inside the LM during the return to Earth on Apollo 13. Fred Haise told me that since heat does not rise in microgravity,
if you could stay perfectly still, the heat created by the body would form a little heat barrier around him, making it seem warmer than the measured
temperatures. Once he developed a fever because of his UTI, he radiated even more heat around his body, and this effect was enhanced. However, even
a small movement would dissapate this "thermal cushion."
3 - While there were two cameras mounted onto the anterior upper torso segments of the Excusion Suits, they had other cameras that could be tripod
mounted. The lunar rover, as mentioned before, had a remote-controlled camera that could be controlled independently of either astronaut.
That still does not conclusively identify the mechanics of this photos, but those are some of the options.
