When I was about 13 I joined some online message boards with adult/teenage (American Girl) doll collectors. They all took neat photos of their dolls, which in turn made me want to as well. I started shooting with an old camera that I don't even remember the model or brand of. Not long after that my family bought a Canon point and shoot, SD600. This camera became my best friend. :0) I took tons of pictures and made a few stop-motions (which I will post one of these days). I quickly found I loved taking photos!!
I used the point and shoot for quiet a while. It was only February before last that I bought my first DSLR, Gidget. :) <3>
For a couple of years there, at Christmas time, I would fill my room with multiple doll sized Christmas scenes.
Although I don't do that anymore, or even take photos of my dolls anymore, I love, love, love all the special memories I made when I did. And I love the fact that my dolls are what got me into photography. :0)
So, without further ado, here's the Christmas slide show I did back in 08 when I still had my point-and-shoot and my bedroom was more or less a Christmas doll village. :) Much of the miniatures and decor were things I had made myself.
Make sure your sound is on (and you can push "pause" on my blog's music if you just scroll down to the bottom of this page)!! The music adds a lot to the video... (gosh I love this song!)
Some of the dolls featured near the end were "Pullip" dolls -link-. They're Japanese made dolls and very cool and adorable. :0)
I really hope you enjoyed both my little story and my slide show!! Hope I didn't chatter on too long. I never know if people would prefer me to get right to the point, or if you guys enjoy reading stuff like this? Lemme know.
