Doll Photography 101
Hello all! So for the last couple of National Barbie Doll Collector Conventions I have been asked to do presentations on Doll Photography and blogging. If anyone is interested in hearing these presentations and learning what I talked about, I will be attempting to rebroadcast them in parts every Friday over the next couple of months.
Starting Friday 2/23/18
Here is the teaser video I released before the presentation. Just click to play
And the introduction to the series video. Just click to play.
Thank you so much for this, I’m really looking forward to it!

I’m very interested in hearing your presentations! I’m also still struggling with jealousy over your Elyses (Elysei?)!
February 16, 2018 at 6:36 am
LOL! Well..hopefully the jealousy won’t prevent you from enjoying the presentations.

I’m so excited! Just the other day I was looking at your photo shoot and trying to figure out how you light your scenes. I almost bought a set of 2 lights on stands from Amazon, they came with 4 bulbs in each light along with diffusers. Now I will wait and see what you suggest. Particularly how many bulbs to use in each stand, and what type of bulbs are best.

Great questions Pink Peonies! I am not sure if I will be able to go into specific details ( light bulbs) in the segment on lighting but feel free to ask as many questions as you would like. I generally go for daylight light bulbs but frankly…color gets modified by your camera and post processing so the actual light bulbs are not necessarily as much of a factor as it used to be. In general though…I try to go for anything that will give me something that mimics actual sunlight. That is usually a “daylight” light bulb and they tend to be bluer in tint to the florescent bulbs we normally get. Hope this helps

Enjoy you photos so very much and look forward to gaining from you wisdom. I love photographing my dolls and use photos on my phone. I could really use some tips on improving capturing those images. Thank you for your contribution to the doll community.

Thank you so much Mary. I am glad you enjoy my imagers and hope you can walk away from these rebroadcast segments with some useful information. Feel free to ask questions after the segments. I will try to be good about answering them all on the blog.

Will the presentations be live, and if so, what time will it start? Or, will I be able to tune in at my convenience?
February 19, 2018 at 5:51 am
Great question Vernola! Actually the segments won’t be live…just taped segments so you can watch at your convenience. If you have questions after the segment, feel free to put them in the comments section and I will try to be timely in responding. Also..if I have a bunch of questions, I will just do another segment to answer them as best as I can.

Do you sell any of the dolls, they are beautiful.. how much ?
June 18, 2020 at 8:18 pm
Hello Mary, I do sell dolls from time to time but normally I only sell at conventions. You can find many of the dolls I photograph on Ebay or on doll forums.
