Ugh…I have no excuse for not getting around to the lingering remains of winter doll photos…except that there are just so many.

So, even though it is technically spring, I’m still in winter mode. And I probably will be for a while. What can I say? I still have more winter wonder to share…

The Gang At The Snow Caves

The Gang At The Snow Caves

You’ve already met the models, so see previous posts for the details. But the location is new. After all the shoveling, the snow piles were pretty substantial. Given such an opportunity, I couldn’t resist digging out a cavern and steps for the dolls. When the afternoon sun lit it up, a mess of dolls came out to play. The lighting didn’t last long, but it was enough to grab a few pictures. Woo- hoo!

Winter Still Has A Few Icy Gasps Left

Since wintertime isn’t going anywhere soon, it’s best to just embrace it. Bundle up and take a walk. Admire the sun shining on all that snow. Remember, eventually spring will steal it all away.

Today’s model is one I used a few posts back, Foto Fab Poppy. Her photos were taken on the street in front of our house, on a sunny day in early February. Yeah, I’m about a month or so behind – just trying to catch up. 🙂

This winter has supplied plenty to work with: extreme cold snaps, feet of snow, frost and fog. They all figure in when a photo shoot is planned. Though it’s easy to run from rough weather, taking advantage of it requires a little more finesse. Thinking outside the box….or inside of the ice box really comes into play.

Locked In Winter's Icy Embrace

Locked In Winter’s Icy Embrace

Today’s model is Foto Fab Poppy Parker. She is wearing Sweet in Switzerland Poppy’s furry hat & hand warmer, the jumpsuit from Barbie’s Winter Weekend fashion, a hoodie sweater (originally sold as a Christmas ornament) from Christopher and Banks (a women’s clothing store) and Pure Evil Misaki’s boots.

Poppy’s ice enclosure was made by freezing water in baking pans with a raised edge. Each frozen panel was placed (taller side up) in the snow to create walls and then were secured with a “mortar” of snow mixed with water to seal the joins. I froze the pans of water during a cold week near January’s end when the days stayed below freezing and the nights were in the teens or single digits. It was an ambitious plan, but it made an otherwise unbearably frigid week or so something to look forward to.

Poppy’s “ice house” was constructed in our front yard and it caught the sun’s brilliance for most of the day. It was interesting to watch the changes in illumination as time ticked by; glowing with the morning light shining through it, highlighting the clarity and opacity of the ice and then glimmering, sparkling in the afternoon sunshine. Poppy’s photos were taken under both of these conditions in the images here. I took quite a few, so you can see more by clicking on the link to my Flickr pages.

As you can see by the new header on my blog, I am. I’ve been on a creative jag lately – crocheting bikinis and making jewelry for my dolls. So, I nabbed some of Poppy Parker dolls from my collection and dressed them up to show ’em off. We got a sunny day yesterday (Hurray! No rain. It’s been raining nearly every day for ages here.) and I decided to put the good weather to use. I dragged all of them, my cameras and myself outside for photo time.

Today’s models’ names are listed under each image. Their photos were taken on the lower deck in our back yard in the late afternoon. LOL, I loaded them all into a box, set them up and clicked away. It was quite a challenge, shooting thirteen dolls (attempting to pose them naturally and in an interesting way while trying not to knock them over) with the sun beating down on me and a few insects trying to get noticed by this paparazzi (buzz, buzzzz). But, all in all, I’d say it was a success. Kinda makes me want to drag out my Barbie swimming pool and set it up for a full day’s shoot…we’ll see. Anyway, if you want to see more, be sure to visit my Flickr pages via the link on the right.

Sun & Fun,

It’s Only Just Begun…
