Preparing for Xmas

December implies attempting and failing to take proper bokeh photos with my dolls. For this, this year I explicitly bought a net of Xmas lights (which is of questionable quality, but there wasn't anything else) and hubby added the golden pearls strap. My first attempt is with Merry and Cookie, who were also playing with some seasonal props and decoration that later went on the tree.

This was the first time putting one of the sleeping/yawny hands on Merry, and the dang hook almost slips! I was like "no no no NO NO" while attempting to switch the hands. At least I managed to change it with no issues.

Anyways, here are a bunch of photos. Hopefully, Coco's photos will come next week!


Anyways, the good think is that I at least got the idea of how far the lights must be from the doll, and the camera from the doll. I also tested how should I put the regular illumination and all. Good think is that hubby came (without me asking) and helped me hold the reflection panels :D






The thing was the even when I put the backdrop horizontally, the distance made me almost impossible to take horizontal (or even slightly tilted photos) without catching space out of the backdrop. So tons of vertical photos, and some collage to make up for it xD

I also attempted to take similar photos, as you can see, one of Merry playing with the drum, and then Cookie with the tiny Santa xD. Just me trying things.







I'm sorry, I'm a sucker of their tails and those ribbons, that is just too much cuteness! In any case, I also made another yukata (white with blue stars) but I decided to sell it. It is Lati Yellow/Pukifee size, and you can find it on The Doll Bazar or in DoA Marketplace.

Anyways,are you planning any xmas-themed photo session? I know some of you have awesome miniature trees for your dolls! Hope you are doing great!! :D
