Only Death

My spring tradition continues. Last year I took Iria to this location and now it’s Sigrun again for a second time. Out of necessity. I’d like to take a doll I haven’t taken there before but I didn’t have a fitting new outfit for anyone else. Hexia would’ve been nice to take because she’s my newest full doll, but I like there to be a long dress or something for this location and she doesn’t do dresses. I should make her some sort of a leathe-badass-warrior outfit set with a hem or something, but I need to design that first. But maybe next year. Her colours would fit right in. While with Sigrun I had to alter the colour tone quite a bit because she only works cold tones well.

I had completely forgotten what an absolute pain she is to shoot outside. For whatever reason it’s really hard to focus on her face, so it tends to be blurry a lot. However, it might’ve been a little easier today since I touched up her face up a few days ago, as it had faded a lot. I also have only once managed to reflect light into her eyes properly -despite a reflector setup. Indoors it’s a lot easier but outside they just tend to be dark blobs, although they’re gorgeous in person. And let’s not even talk about her neck doing whatever it wants although I’ve sueded it. Sigh. I should also re-string her arms. But well, she’s certainly not the hardest doll to work with that I own, but it’s just outside she’s a pain. Indoor photos of her are so much easier.

Born of Winter

I forced myself to go outside for some overdue winter photos yesterday. It was a nice Sunday so it had to be done. I’m not feeling very inspired despite the nice weather, but I did have a good time at least and it resulted in some decent photos. I should work on her new headdress and do some airbrushing, since I bought more paints on Saturday, but I haven’t gotten to those yet. Slowly, but surely…

Sorry they’re a bit repetitive. I should really take more than one doll out at once, but it’s more hassle and I don’t really have many I could take. Unless I continued my stories, but they’d require some creative solutions. x_x

Prayer

I went to check out some tracks in the forest today, and took Sigrun with me, just so that I’d get a little something out of the trip. Nothing special, a small photo session, but it felt good to be outside, rolling in the snow for a change. There’s lots of it and it’s soft and pretty ♥

Guided by the Light

I’m so sorry some of these are a different colour (last ones most notably and the gif), but I went out at sunset and naturally the light kept fading. I would’ve edited them similar from the RAW images, but I accidentally rolled the mode dial on my camera at some point and thus didn’t get raw images of half of the photos. Sigh.

Backlog: The Gateway Tree

More late posts. This time it’s Sigrun out in the forest. I actually made my way to this curved tree, that I often keep eyeing (because I can see it from my other photo locations) but I’ve only gone to it once before. It’s hard to get to: there used to be a path but two trees have fallen down and blocked it effectively. I had to go around them and it’s not easy going that way -especially in summer when it’s swampy out there. And during winter it’s a bit dangerous because of the holes between all the rocks. But that day the tree just called to me, so I went there. I followed some animal tracks (raccoon dogs and rabbits probably) and got there somewhat easily. :3

Rising from the Fog

I’ve been trying to do this shoot for days now, but today was the first time I succeeded. I’ve been waking up in the crack of dawn and cycling to the lake to see if there’s fog. Today there was so I cycled right back, picked up Sigrun and went back. Only I was in such a hurry that I forgot my rubber boots and had to go into the lake barefoot. Oh well, let’s just hope I don’t catch a cold because I have things to do.

I love this Souldoll dress even more now that I noticed that it floats, instead of sinking.

Traveller

I have a story coming up as soon as I find the inspiration to re-read the text part to weed out any mistakes I might’ve left in there.

But in the mean time I took some Sigrun photos while I was out testing my new camera <3

Light path

This is something I’ll need to re-do when/IF we get more snow this winter. We probably won’t but I can always hope, right? I should also shoot RAW next time, so that I can edit them better -hopefully. I’m really not loving the colours in these. I pretty much only like the last Sigrun photo because that edited well.
