Taking doll pictures this time of year is really tough for me.
My apartment is really dark. Even if it's around noon and I have all the lights on, it's still too dark to take doll pictures.
If I drag lots of lamps over, I get very stark shadows.
I get pictures like this one:
Or this one:
And I guess they are adequate, but I want to take good pictures, and I don't want to wait until April!
I can't take pictures outside. The ground is covered in half-melted snow. It is not lovely.
I probably need to invest in some photography lamps and reflectors. Several have been recommended to me, and I just don't know what to get. Plus, I don't want to spend too much money.
So that is one reason the blog is currently quiet!
