One of my goals lately has been to start putting an effort into doll photography. You may have noticed from the current state of my dolly profiles page that I don’t even have photos of all my dolls, and a lot of them are really crappy, lazy photos, but I’m hoping to get decent, thought-out pictures of all my dolls eventually, so I’ve begun to work on this. Here’s my first photoshoot, taken on August 5 in my backyard. The subjects were Marty (Pullip Akemi) and Ivy (Ai Doll English Ivy), mainly because they’re my two “fancy” dolls right now.
I had fun trying to portray Marty’s goofy, energetic personality through her photos.
Ivy, on the other hand, is a little grump and takes everything way too seriously, so she was a fun contrast.
Ivy would never admit it out loud, but she’s bonded with Marty now. Although Marty has a tendency to treat her like she’s a baby/plaything, and Ivy doesn’t enjoy that very much.
More photoshoots to come! And once I get back to school in about a week I’ll have even more options for locations!
