It was fine and dandy in the summer when I had a place to photograph my dolls, but as the weather turned, and the dampness snuck into my yard, the last thing I wanted to do was take my handmade sweethearts out into the yard!
I've tried a variety of things, but it always involves some major setting up. I wanted an option that could work on the fly. So when I painted my studio two weeks ago, I had an idea in mind.
I had an old cork board. I could paint it to match the room, and make it into a portable spot for pictures. It's actually working out really well! I know the floor is dark as well, but I've already tackled that problem for the next set of pictures. All of this stuff was stuff I had. The knobs were from an old dresser. They work perfectly for hanging clothing! The corkboard was just sitting around, but any board would work just as well. I also used some faux wood tiles for the floor that you'll see in my next upload. I might even add a piece of floor molding to the cork board that I know I have in the basement! All in all, I created a small photostudio for my dolls for next to nothing!
