I had to google "domes Arizona" ..... no the photo was taken on my kitchen table with a posable 16" doll and a tube of cardboard wrapped around my flashgun ...... I really like the look of those domes tho.

Behind The Lens

Location
on my kitchen table .... most of my photos are done here
Time
because I'm at work all day I only have evenings to take photos
Lighting
I wrapped and taped a white piece of paper around my flashgun to give the feeling of a spotlight in her eyes
Equipment
I use (and love) my Sony A7 together with a flashgun (a cheap one but cant recall the name at the moment) and a tripod together with my e-mount 30mm macro lens
Inspiration
as I'm always trying to take photo's of my dolls to look realistic but not hide the fact that they are dolls I try and take photos of them in unusual setting ..... also I have a lack of models to use so using dolls helps me to learn about light and settings
Editing
I dont really like Post-poscessing so any that is done is normally in gobal style all over
In my camera bag
Sony A7 with loads of macro lenses and a ring light ..... but lately I have been using my flashlight on my iphone believe it or not ........ long exposure and then paint the scene with my iphone LOL
Feedback
because my flat is so full of sh&t I always use low light to hide whats happening behind .... for me stark light on a dark backgound works best .... and a lot of time
