Ehhh hmmmm!!  Well Miss Poppy…what’s with the honkin’ rock you are wearing on that all important digit??!!  Word is that Poppy’s boyfriend Chip will be making his debut in 2012.  Perhaps it’s a bit more than “boyfriend”???  Will have to see about that.


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.
