Trying to photograph things in natural light in the Pacific Northwest is pretty much a crap shoot even on a good day. Last week, we enjoyed days and days of 90 degree weather and loads of sunshine. This week it’s 62 and what else…rain. I would have shot this last week, if I had had what I wanted to shoot last week. Unfortunately, I didn’t receive the item I wanted to shoot until this week. Here was my perfect location…
Loved the natural texture of this and the green moss that spindled out like vines. But…
It was rather wet.
And not looking like it was going to change any time soon. So what do you do? You change your shoot location and make the best of it. So this is the rain part of the title so where is the singing?
Have you ever had that moment when you dressed a doll in something and it just “sang”? You know what I mean right? It just makes you go “ Oh man…that looks so amazing on her!” I had that happen this week and while my first choice for background did not pan out, I found a couple alternate solutions that worked out just fine. I was still singing even though it was raining.

For the past couple of years, Integrity Toys has sponsored a contest during their annual convention. It is a fashion design challenge. The judges for the competition are Jason Wu and his design team from Integrity Toys. The person who wins the competition has their design produced by Integrity Toys and it is offered up for sale in the following years collection. Pretty cool right? This past years convention design competition winner was Julia Leroy a very talented designer and photographer. She holds a masters in design so it is no surprise that she would bring those skills into her collecting. A most excellent design Julia!!! Thank you so much for sharing your designing talent and creativity with the collecting community.
