I've been working on these art dolls for awhile...and I'm ready to take pics and get them posted on my Etsy shop:
Now, I have difficulty getting good pictures of my crafts. No matter what I try, or how many different lighting effects or how many shots I take, I'm never happy with the results. I just end up taking close-up shots with a blank white background.
So I thought I'd try something different with these dolls in an attempt to capture the feeling I want to convey: they are the Deadutantes (a play on debutantes, of course) and they are dressed up for the ball, laughter, and dancing. All dolled up, so to speak. I want to show a fanciful combination of gothic and baroque influence. These pics just didn't do it for me, so I'm going to have to try again.
Perhaps I can "antique" the pics on the computer and use one or two, along with white background shots.
I need to show the "cuteness" factor too, which is more bright and cheery.
I'd love any feedback on these dolls and the pics from above! :)
