Fashion Shoot – Macro

So, on Sunday I was asked to take some close-up shots of doll clothing for a post on the quimperhittys blog. I guess you could call this a fashion shoot, even though it was all done with a macro lens on my kitchen table. As I have mentioned before, I live surrounded by dolls, well dressed ones, that have most of their clothes made here in my home. The Hitty dolls sometimes get involved in this blog even though they have a blog of their very own now.

While I was photographing the clothes for my partner’s blog, I sometimes noticed an angle or detail that was not going to be of the kind useful in the post about making doll clothing, such as the top one with the flowers that were also on the table behind the angled cloth I used for a background. So, since it consumed all of my photographic effort on Sunday, I give you some of these other shots that otherwise would have been binned.

If you care to learn more about this clothing project, part of an outfit inspired by a Vermeer painting, and to see the other photographs that I took, then go to this link. The garments are for a 6 inch doll. An idea of scale can be had from the pins you can see just above the lower hem in the photo above.

      • Hope you find it interesting. Its quite a whimsical and amusing blog. The Hittys are opera fans, or at least some of them are, but they do seem to get things a bit mixed up sometimes.

    • Constance loves that coat, and to the best of my knowledge has never shared it with any of her sisters. Not because she is mean, but because it is pretty special and they are probably nervous to ask.

      • And I’m sure she looks beautiful in the coat. 🙂

        As for the other Hittys, they have time. I expect one of the twins will muster the courage sooner or later.

    • Thnaks Ken. The real close-ups are all pretty heavy crops too, which makes the need for focus that much greater.Most are tripod shots and pretty long exposures.
