Barbie for big girls.

A Bridal Still Life

I am continually inspired by miniature couture.  In particular, I adore any and all images that come out of Le Petit Théâtre from Dior.

I love how they use real size items with miniatures.  I had a free day in the studio…almost unheard of these days…so I thought I would try my hand at something like this.  I decided to use my most recent bridal shoot as inspiration.  For those of you following my instagram story…you got to see a little taste of the shoot.  But…as most things go in the studio, you saw the prelim shots and not the final part of what I actually used in the processed images. 

I have to give a shout out to my dear friend Rogier Corbeau of Dutch Fashion Doll World who did some additional art direction on this shoot.  Your vision is always valued and appreciated my friend.

But let’s face it…this entire shoot was all about this fabulous dress from Rimdoll on Etsy. ©2017 Inside The Fashion Doll Studio - A Bridal Still Life

For those of you interested in the set up for this shoot, it was all done in natural light with one reflector.  Be prepared people when using natural light to be waiting half the day for optimal lighting.  Since I always love to see behind the scenes from others, I will share a behind the scenes shot here of the set up.  Yes…I have a flash in the picture below but I didn’t end up using it.

    Hi Rebecca, This is Sheila Nero we meet a few times before at Integrity convention and I believe Barbie convention. Yes I’m following your sites as I just love your work. I hope to see you again soon. Do you ever attend the IFDC in Las Vegas? Tell your daughter she is a beautiful ballerina! I appreciate you sharing all your wonderful pictures and information! Thank you for taking the time to do so!

    • Thank you so much Sheila. Of course I remember does my daughter 🙂 I currently do not attend IFDC as the dates of this convention as well as the convention in Milan always hit at the time when my daughter is performing at some event. I am glad you are enjoying the images and blog. It’s comments like yours that keep me going. Thank you for that 🙂
