Photographing Art Dolls
Yesterday my art doll collective (Chris Fondi, Joyce Compton & I) met all day to work on our portfolios. Much of the day was spent preparing dolls for the photo shoot. When the dolls were finally ready we set up the photo stage. It consists of a small seamless backdrop, an ironing board, two color balanced lights with reflector umbrellas and a tripod. It doesn't take up much space when we aren't using it. The excellent photographer we had arranged to take photos of our dolls with a high quality camera did not arrive. Joyce and I decided to have a go at taking our own photos with our point and shoot cameras.
