This is a guest post from out friends Kay & Holly at Doll Delight!
Hi Doll Diaries fans! We hope you are enjoying yet another fun week of Camp Doll Diaries! We’ve loved being a part of all the fun! Today we are so excited to share a fun summer activity – Doll Fashion Photography! Doll Fashion and photography go hand in hand, it’s so fun to spend an afternoon styling your doll and then having a photo shoot! Since we have been dabbling in fashion photography for a while, we thought we would share a few of our tips for having a successful fashion photo shoot.
Capture the complete look!
Of course, your starting point in doll fashion photography should be a photo of the doll’s entire outfit, thus the entire doll! Try taking a few vertical and horizontal, find what works best for you!
Accessories can make an outfit, so make sure to showcase them in style. Do your best to capture a few accessories shots, such as the shoes and necklace. Hems of skirts and dresses also make for pretty detail shots!
Even though her outfit is stunning, your doll is beautiful too so be sure and feature a few portrait style photos of your Dollie! And PS: snap a picture of her gorgeous hairstyle too, it adds so much to her outfit! Whether it’s braids or buns, make sure to take a photo or two!
Make your surroundings match your photo shoot! This is such a fun part of shooting outfit posts, we love looking for new locations (Even if they are just new areas of our backyard!) to shoot in. Think about your post and the story you will be telling through it. Is your doll wearing a bathing suit? Have her model by the pool or in the sand, or at the beach if possible. Having a well thought out location makes a HUGE impact on your photos!
Have fun! Always remember that doll fashion photography is all about the fun! Instead of worrying about composing the perfect shot or worrying about little details, just do your best and have fun styling and photographing your doll. Your passion for doll fashion and photography will SHINE through your pictures!
We’d love to get to know you, please stop by our blog and say hi! Have a great day Campers!!
