blythe rouge noir and bear by kaijumama blythe rouge noir and bear by kaijumama
My Blythe Kyle with miniature bear Okuribi made by me.
Still life photo practice/shadows & lighting. Doll is made by Takara toy company in Japan.


:star: Advice please:
No matter what I've tried this bear refuses to have his photo taken clearly, he looks nothing like this in person ): light or dark backgrounds, several lights, indoor outdoor, the result is always poor. I hoped that my Blythe Kyle would help since her hair is also red, but no. His fur is still wrong, too shadowed and the face can't be seen.

Any advice from experienced photographers would be much appreciated.

I absolutely ADORE all the bears you make!!!

Plus, I think it's clever how the blythe's hair colour and the bear's colour matches. I also love how you set it up - a very cute pose!

Do you only have one light source?

For this one I used only one light source ^^ the doll's face is so shiny that even when lights are in a soft box, or set far away, each light source will show in a reflection on her big ol forehead.

What I like to use is reflective light with my main light on my shiny Blythes. You can reflect light off a white piece of paper and it appears soft, or diffused. I can take an example photo later this week on my flickr if you would like to see what I do.

:? *squints*

Then he must look like a Giraffe in person because I see nothing wrong with that bear. :nod:

Oh--I took two years of Photography in High School, by the way. :giggle:

Thanks Sephal! The weird problem is that he doesn't look anything like this in person. I've tried everything now I'm stumped at what to do. This bear is haunted I think ;P

Lucky you had such cool classes in high school! (:

I know that's what I think! But since I made it, it's haunted with the ghost of me xD

You're so lucky! I went to high school before all the fun. We had extra classes like learning to type on a typewriter lol nothing really artistic, no computers.

There was one class that taught business & how to do store window display, I liked that one.
