Meet Isabelle

The Doll

Isabelle is a 4Woods Europe AI Neo IM with the Lana head. She moved to England from France in late 2019 after previously being a model for the 4Woods site. I have been an admirer of the beauty of 4Woods dolls for a long time so when the opportunity came to invite her to stay I jumped at the chance.

The Shoot...

In this shoot Isabelle is relaxing at home. She is taking it easy on the sofa, then starts to look at doll pictures on the tablet and computer. Eventually she decides to try using a camera herself.

The Gear:

For the shoot I used a Canon EOS 6D with an 85mm f/1.8 lens, except for one photo which uses a 50mm f/1.4. Lighting came from two ESDDI 85W lights (one softbox, one umbrella). The camera Isabelle uses in the shoot is a Canon EOS 60D with a 24-105 f/4 L lens. Editing was done in Darktable 3.4.1 for Linux.

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.
