Snapshot Sunday: Barbies on Parade


 

A group of Barbies I was photographing for our doll blog.

Today I’ve been busy taking doll photos and haven’t got out of the house to photograph anything new for this blog so I am going to do something that I rarely do and post a doll photo.

This was taken using the photo cube and lighting that I bought recently. The kit came with additional backgrounds so I used a dark blue one for this shot. I’m still experimenting with this set up but I think this one came out not too badly.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.

    • The one I bought is quite large as I was thinking of larger dolls and doll houses but I may buy the smaller 40x40cm just for the fashion dolls as I photograph them a lot. It would be easier to reach inside to change the backdrops than with the large one. They are very cheap. I can get the small one for less that $A15 with free postage from China so it’s worth having the two.
