Have you ever noticed how men ask women to smile? Not even ask…TELL them to smile. It’s a pet peeve of mine. In a way, that’s a form of controlling. I could go way deeper into this subject but I’d probably get heated and this is more about photography.
Meet Camille. She is a Coconut custom with a SUPER soft alpaca reroot. I bought her for myself as a 30th birthday present. Despite her painted on permanent frown, she really is sweet. An instant fave.
Photos were taken with an Olympus Digital Camera. A point and shoot as I do not have the funds for a DSLR. Maybe someday….
This is Tookie. I recently “adopted” her from a lovely lady in the UK. She is a Tokissi Rabbit.
Tokissi rabbits are made in South Korea. They come in various colors and their eyes can be changed, similar to ball jointed dolls. They are made of PVC. The cool thing about the brand Tokissi is the translation of their name. “Tokissi” is a combination of the word “rabbit” and “miss” or “mister.” So, this doll could be a boy. Normally, they wear dresses but I still thought it was worth noting that they are gender neutral.
This photo was taken around 6:30 or 7 am here in Ohio. (The best time for sunny shots.) I used a regular point and shoot camera with a pop art setting.
My 2014 self portrait. I did some tiny photoshop editing for the smoke effect.
I know it’s about a week into the new year, but I would like to share my resolution. In this new year, I’d love to learn and grow. Recently, I heard this pairing of words: “childlike tenacity.” I love that. I want to go through this year with the tenacity of a child. Pure passion, uncorrupted by other’s opinions.
Barbie is the ideal woman. She can do it all. She is a doctor, a baker, a vet, a mother and super gorgeous to boot. If I could ask Barbie one thing, I would ask her “How do you do it?” which would be followed by her gasping for air and doubling over from her less-than-realistic body proportions.
These photos were taken indoors with a sheet as the backdrop and a mirror as a prop. I used a dramatic filter that exaggerates shadows. The purpose theme is campy but somehow turned creepy.
