Doll photography tips


This is a selection of photos my husband and I took to enter in the Kidz n Cats photo contest.  After several hours of “location scouting” one weekend, we found a lovely spot at a dam not too far from our house (in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies).  Well, it was not far to drive, but once we parked it was about a 45 minute climb uphill to an altitude of maybe 9000’ (~2700m).  We did this hike while my husband carried a huge (backpacking-type) backpack full of 2 cameras, several lenses, dolls and props.

I was extremely pleased with the results (but sad I didn’t win the contest!)  Anyway, here are a few (of the 50+ we took) photos of the “camping trip” for you to enjoy and at the bottom is a .pdf for you with doll photography tips.  It’s not about lenses/focusing/etc because I know next to nothing about that.  It’s more about composition – setting up your dolls to create pictures that people want to look at again and again.

  1. Those are great pictures! sorry you didn’t win either, good luck for next time! Your hints and tips are excellent! 🙂 If you don’t mind I would add that a kneeling pad is a very handy accesory for outdoor photography! I got bruises the day I forgot mine!! 😀
