I wonder if anyone has any tips for improving doll photography.
Specifically about lighting and creating backgrounds.
I've been trying to think how to set up a doll shoot where I could control the lighting better, and get rid of background clutter.
I just don't seem to have enough hands, and beyond the old 'paint a cardboard box' technique which served me in my younger days I'm finding myself a bit stuck for ideas.
We don't have the space to store room dioramas (unless they could fold somehow?)...I've been thinking black cloth over a chair...use a torch somehow (in my mind I am sticky taping those coloured sweety papers over to get colours :D)...but every mental scenario winds up with many things falling over, or needing to spend loads of dosh on equipment, or holding a doll in position with my foot while I hold a torch in my mouth :D
I found an old camera tripod, but it is the clamp type...and I've no idea what I could clamp it to,,or if that would help.
Any ideas welcome.
