Our Monthly Featured Photographer for March 2017 is VonRubber:


Movie Star

Svetlana is the popular WM140 TPE Doll with the no less popular #36 head. I received her one year ago (March 24th 2016). Appearing in CoverDoll is probably the best way to celebrate her birthday I guess.

In the past twelve months she has developed her own personality: candid and cute like a doll, but at the same time venomous and manipulative like a Femme Fatale. She has that haughty and distant attitude which is typical of some Russian woman. Typically the ones who are conscious of their beauty and who know how to use their charms to reach their end.

Sometimes it’s as if she had a life before she was a Doll. Resurgences of the past seem to haunt her. She appears strangely at ease in the skin of the different characters she plays during our photography sessions. Playing roles is obviously second nature to her!

For our photo shootings I have used a Panasonic LUMIX FZ38 camera. I have also invested in two soft box lamps. These improved the quality of my photography dramatically. Post production is done with Photoshop.



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.

Well done Von! ... Really clean sharp images yes Svetlana is a Star! heart

Hi Von Rubber, what birthday present for your russian movie star it is. She´s gorgeous! And your pics are always fantastic. Chris


I hadn't really appreciated the 140 size before but you've put her in a wholly different light.


Best wishes


I always like to see new photos of Svetlana. She is beautiful and like you said, I can see in her eyes that she knows how beautiful she is.

Your dedication to your art can be seen in each and every photo you present here and on TDF.
