    CREATIVE Photography of My Favorite Figs

    Hey friends! I love looking at Star Wars toy photography on Pinterest and it really made me want to create my own. I do not have a whole lot of equipment, or special effects gear like mini explosion thing-ys (wow, I’m so professional), but I try anyway. After my Rex Photoshoot, I was pleased with how I was able to photograph action figures with just my super helpful sister and some free editing software (PhotoScape X)… oh and a camera. 😉 Recently we have been buying a few Star Wars Black Series figs, and I really wanted to have some fun photographing them. Today I’m going to share them with…

    It’s “Captain,” Sir. Photoshoot

    Hello There! Today I am excited to share a photoshoot that I am immensely proud of. The photos came out really excellent. This photoshoot features one of my favorite Black Series figs and Star Wars characters, Captain Rex.  Shoutout to my sis for helping me achieve some of the effects! My sister and I looked for interesting areas to photograph Rex in. We found this cool mossy ground area to snap a pic. The morning sun kept moving, but I was able to use it well, thankfully. The best helmet maybe in the entire galaxy. Captain Rex carries 2 DC-17 pistols and marks his own droid kills on his armor.…

    Jewel’s Guide to Making a Photo Story

    Hello, doll lovers! I haven’t really been able to go outside lately because my allergies are really bad, but today I thought it would be fun to show you the elements I use when making a doll photo story! I’ve actually learned more about the “why” of my methods through learning about story lately, and I can now dissect my photo stories more properly. Hopefully, this can help you make some of your own photo stories. 🙂 Doll:   First, I usually start by figuring out which doll I want to use. I strongly encourage exploring the personalities of all your dolls, and a great way to do that is through a…

    Best Bros (Photoshoot)

    Hi, my friends! I hope your day is fantastic. Thank you to all who took my survey! It seems most of you wanted to see more Barbie posts so I am going to try and work on a Barbie photo story (something I’ve never done). I have not been keeping up with the Meet the Barbies Page so today I added the entire Brooks family to make up for the lost time. Check it out if you want! In today’s post, I have a photoshoot of Michael and Zingo (both my dolls). I hope you like it! Michael Michaels (yes, that is his name) and Zingo Thomas are both from…

    Part 6, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Tada!!!!! The last part of “The Treasure of Lady Travier” is finally here! I hope you like it: I stared at Opal waiting for her decision to either abandon me for money or to stay and sit eternally with me. “I’m going with you, Miss Catalina,” Opal nodded. I stared blankly. Why did I not feel surprised? Catalina shook Opal’s hand, “I knew you’d see it the right way.” She turned to me. “Have fun rotting, Dexter Malcome.” Opal approached me, “Dex, this is what I have to do. I’m sure you know why.” I laughed, “Yeah, of course, you just had to do this to me again, because no…

    The Presumed Princess, A Photostory

    ‘Ello Mates. Jewel here! Can you BELIEVE it is almost Christmas?! It is so exciting! Next week, I plan to post a Christmas photostory, but I’m still having trouble uploading photos, so today I’ll be sharing the photo story I had made for Natalie and Emmie’s Fall Photostory Competition. The contest was sadly canceled with me being the only person that sent in a story that didn’t have to be disqualified, but they plan to possibly do it again maybe in the summer, so please consider entering it next year if you are interested! Anyway, this was my short audition story, using the prompts of “Rose” and “Princess”: Dear Diary, I’ve had an…

    Part 4, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Hey doll enthusiasts! Today is part 4 of the Treasure of Lady Travier. I’m not going to tell you which choice won the vote. You’ll have to see, but I will tell you that #1 had 0 votes! LOL,  It was probably way too cliche. XD Well anyway, here it is! I slung the bag over my shoulder and laughed. “Ah! This is perfect.” Julia raised an eyebrow. “How incredibly perfect,” I mused. “What’s so perfect?” She asked. “Ah, Miss Burdett, you do not know this girl like I do. For instance, did you know she has left me for dead multiple times?” “Dex?” Opal begged. “Oh, be quiet, Opal,” I told her. I…

    Part 3, The Treasure of Lady Travier

    Hey you! I am posting this on a Wednesday because I was honestly too tired yesterday to post, but don’t worry, you still have 3 days to comment! Last part, option #1 won, so Dexter is going to meet Opal at the Tea shop! I hope you’ll enjoy this next part! <3 I decided, if Opal could give me any more information it would be in my best interest, so I decided to meet her at the Paris Tea Shop that night. When I stepped in, there she was waiting. I sat down. “There you are.” She smiled. “I see you bought me a cup of tea…” I sighed. “I’m nice…

    Making Plum Pie (Photoshoot)

    Yo yo yo! Before this post starts: I would like to say that when I first moved my blog to WordPress my first photo series, The 30’s, lost its pictures for parts 8-10, but I am proud to announce They have been fully restored! If you haven’t read it it’s probably in one of my top accomplishments on this blog so be sure to check it out! Also, for the last few weeks, I totally spaced adding dolls to the Meet the Barbies page, so this week I’ll be adding 3! Anyway on to the photoshoot: We have these miniature edible plums in our backyard, and I realized they were the…
