Face Time–using props as inspiration.

I don’t know about others but when I photograph something, many times the inspiration for the set up comes from one prop.  In many of my dioramas, I will start with one piece that will set the entire tone for the whole room.  In this case, it’s all about the face.  I saw these very interesting figures at my local Z Gallery and just had to have one for a prop.  I don’t  normally go for the contemporary pieces but this one appealed to me so home with me it went and into the studio for a photo shoot.

And because I just couldn’t leave my macro lens sitting all lonely on the table…….

I just love the face on this Elise.  **Note**  Her hair has been slightly restyled from her original style.  I took the the side down and pulled it over her forehead a bit.  I had seen some other collectors do this on Flickr and on the WClub and loved it so I copied the style.
