Meet Kate

The Doll:

Kate is a Gynoid Model 11 with the Laura head. She arrived May 31, 2023 and has been spending her time shopping and being photographed. She gets her hair done far too frequently and seems to never look the same twice. While not overly tall at 5 foot 4, put her in a pair of boots and suddenly she is tall! While she obviously is proud of her figure, she will tell you her favourite feature is her eyes. She loves her clothes and shopping for more clothes. The never-ending arrival of packages is starting to cause a storage issue in the closet. When she was asked to be in CoverDoll she was a bit surprised and apprehensive. Being new and never having modeled before it certainly caused her a little worry. She hopes the photos she is sharing are liked by all.


The Shoot:

Kate is regularly in front of the camera. It seems thar every wardrobe change results in pictures being taken. She never gets a break! Her goal is to look as natural as possible in every photo. These photos are from 4 different sets. The idea was to give some variety to the photos as well as show how different hair and clothes look on Kate. She wanted to make sure there were pictures for her Instagram page but also knew she had to keep some pictures back so that CoverDoll would get only unseen photos. This meant even more shoots to ensure there were enough pictures to go around. She decided to keep back shots from her favourite sets. And while she is generally very modest, she even decided to include some photos of her in her new lingerie.


The Gear:

Photos were taken in the house using a Nikon Z5 and a Sigma 35mm lens. Lighting is a combination of natural light and bi-color LED lights by Neewer and a hand held light stick. Touch ups and adjustments to the pictures were done in Lightroom.

Note from the Editor: Each month we will feature a different photographer's work. We invite doll owners and manufacturers alike to participate in this new monthly feature. Photo shoots must meet a minimum quality level. If you do not meet that level we are happy to work with you, critique your photos and help you to raise the bar on your photography. Good photo shoots can be had with low cost digital cameras. It is all in the technique.
