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.
