Awesome photos everyone! And thank you very much for your kind comments!

Secret to my photos (hehe, that sounds so silly) is photo tent and semi-professional lights. Me and my ex used to take photography courses back at college, he had the camera and I had tent and lights. When depression befell me, I lost my creative juices and my equipment got shifted to storeroom, but since I'm doing better and better, I decided to get back into my creative hobbies, and this challenge is part of it, So, my lights and tent got pulled out again, although I now have to take photos with my phone.

Do photos we post have to have been taken that day? I took a bunch of photos today of five different dolls, so I want to use some more that I took today for the next few days.

I think it should be OK. I was thinking about the same, because taking the tent and lights out and then put them back to their place every day is quite a kerfuffle, so I've been thinking about taking photos for upcoming week at once. I'll keep posting one every day, because even that is a challenge for me, but I'll take them in batches, as long as it requires tent or going to some distant place. Cute pic by the way!

ETA:

Day 5



Ghouls Rule Frankie. Her face is over-exposed, but I still like the photo.

Lovely shots everyone - it's really nice to check this & see what's happened overnight  :P

beatles - you've reminded me that my WTW is still in her box & I really should take her out & play with the set.

neon - lovely portrait of Frankie.

Anyone - from the person who did this last year ( :P), I started out actually taking the photo each day, but that fell apart when I went on holidays in April, and also in July when I got the flu.  So I would then take a bunch of photos on the weekend and post them in the following week.  You can generally see when that happened -later in the year the "daily" photo would be a mini in the tree branch, and the more elaborate set ups would be done on the weekend
I don't have any fancy photo-taking equipment, my pics are all taken with my phone & whatever the ambient light is at the time

modernmonsterhigh - the yarn reroot of Viperine is lovely, I like how the yarn matches her snakes.
And Howleen is a little cutie - I have that one as I loved the hedgehog tshirt.

Beatles - Gooliope looks great sitting in the tree.


Okay, I've done my pic for the Doll-a-Week Challenge.

Beatrice wanted to be a pilot ever since she got her first toy plane  :)

Thank you so much!! I actually mixed my acrylics to match the hair I was using ( from my grandma ) so I could paint a good peach color to match her hair :) I forgot to say I crocheted her sweater and used some black knit fabric and felt for her short joggers. And painted WW clawdeenís shoes white and attached a gem to the sneakers. Aand I remove her scales and gave her some ( VERY FRAGILE ) silver poseable wire with white glitter glue attatched. Wow that was a lot Iím sorry.. your photography skills are amazing!! Iím no good compared to the quality :0 and that airplane is adorable ^~^

Beatles - awesome pic!

Day 8



Sweet 1600 Frankie. It's going to be Frankie for the rest of the week. Next week I'm going to document all my Cleos. I know it gets monotonous, but I'd forget whom I took pics of and who still needs to be photographed, so I'm doing it this way to help myself keep track of things.

 :biggrin: :biggrin:  I kept an excel spreadsheet last year with the name of the doll(s), the type of doll and a brief description so i could keep track of them all.  Otherwise (and you might remember the period I got 2 weeks ahead of myself  :blush:) I'd never have been able to know where i was up to.

I like how you are doing the charachters together - it's interesting to see the differences between the lines.

Beatles - nice outside shot!  (I really need to unbox my WTW Raven)

Scarlett - that's an interesting idea, might try it out, especially as I don't have enough dolls to cover whole year (I mean, seriously, atm I only have 165 dolls, how unfortunate, waah waah!), so when I'm done with 'cataloguing', I'll probably make a spreadsheet similar to yours.

Budget Frankie balancing (with the help of the shelf behind her). I like trying to get my dolls to balance!

Is it all right if I try to join this late? I really wanted to try participating especially since I got a new camera for Christmas. It's just been a little crazy. I still have to learn about what all my camera can do. I bought a lightbox that I'm waiting to come in the mail. I am excited to do some more fun photography and I actually have other dolls besides MH I can photograph.

That said here is a shot of my Star Wars Sabine Wren

Beatles - that photo is awesome, it looks like the shelf is a few inches behind Frankie and that she's actually balanced on her feet.

modern - welcome back!

NinaMarie - of course it's allright to join late, the more the merrier!

Sunset Shimmer is definitely my favorite of the new Equestria Girls dolls!
