Our Featured Photographer for March 2019 is Joebee
Meet Carmen and Bianca
The dolls in my photos are both Ultimate Fantasy Dolls, by PipeDream, I was very fortunate to be chosen by them as an Ambassador for their products. The models used were Carmen and Bianca. I stumbled into doll photography through smaller 1/6 Scale Phicen dolls ( Barbie Sized Silicone Dolls) and have just recently moved up to the larger life size scale. I really enjoy the hobby, and just do this for fun when time allows.
I used an older prosumer quality Sony NEX-3 Camera for all of the photos. I have a few lenses for it, but always end up with a Sony 30mm macro prime lens as I prefer that one over all others. For lighting I stick with continuous lighting. I used a couple of basic single bulb tripods with 1 silver reflector umbrella, and another with a white umbrella. The black backdrop is a king size sheet set, I picked up at a discount outlet. I have not done any post processing to the photos, other than cropping a few.

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.
