Yes. I bought a doll. :icondealwithitplz:

Anyways, her name is Layla, I bought her at the Denver Doll Emporium on September 17th, 2011. She's an Elva sculpt from 5StarDoll with normal translucent skin.

This shot was at Tiny Town & Railroad in Colorado during the COBJD group meet-up. The location was perfect for doll photos and I had tons of fun seeing everyone and their dolls. I also learned a lot from them.

It's kind of funny to pose these dolls with these tiny houses and have them look to scale. This white 'country home' was modeled from the famous painting "American Gothic" and it had the cutest porch.

Technical: I don't have anything near a nice fancy camera, but I think a few of them turned out alright.

Firstly congrats on the new doll!

You don't need a fancy camera to get great pictures, there is a lot of stuff you can do before that stage. I do think this picture is a little bit out of focus, one trick i do is take a few of the same shot, that way more of them are more likely to turn out OK. It can be hard to tell on a smaller screen.

Also if you want to have a better idea if you look at the photo's you have taken and zoom in on the photo you have taken to see if it still looks clear. :)

Also this could be a very charming shot with another little trick i like to do. I like to get down to the dolls level and point the camera up. This can make the doll seem bigger compared to the BG. It is a little tricky to get the hang of at first, trail and error really.
