Getting acquainted with the camera, or, brace yourselves for a ton of random doll pictures

sedens
Kanbei in a sweater I finished last week--yes, it's 100+ degrees here. To quote keiki_boys's Kane, it's lucky resin doesn't sweat.



The sweater still looks too red, and obviously I need to get the tripod out, but this little f/1.8 portrait lens is going to be magic--I can tell already, even in this rough early stage of adjustment to the new equipment.

He looks plumb scary with the P40s and that wild black fur wig . . . I do want to play with light, and try to catch more of the orange glow if I can.

The metallics are a great idea; I want to hear what you think when you try them!
