Photography Tips

Just wanted to share a few of my techniques for shooting indoors. I took these 4 unedited photos with my Canon 50D with a 18-55 mm lens in the same location, same distance from doll, eye level without a tripod. Each photo is very different and the only change was the way I used my flash. 

My favorite functional accessory is a simple Flash Bounce. It prevents blowout from the regular harsh flash, softens shadows and provides evenly lit shots. You can also use a white business card sized paper and just place it in front of the flash to soften your flash. As you can see each technique gives a drastically different look. The Flash Bounce from Photojojo is reasonably priced and the paper is free!!! 
This simple technique will completely change your photos and give you a more professional look. 
Hope this helps for anyone who has experienced harsh Flash Blowout problems.

Hey. Do you have any tips on positioning Blythe dolls for photos? Their big, heavy heads make them hard to position.... For a novice like me anyway :)
