Attention to Detail

I have this porcelain doll in my living room that I’ve been using as a test subject partly because she’s in a spot with amazing lighting and partly because she never tires of it. My one complaint is that she doesn’t really give me much variety when it comes to posing.

When you look at such a piece of room decor, you see it as a whole. When you look at a bride, you see her as a whole as well. Not many people really pay attention to the intricate design on her dress, the delicate way she may hold her hand to the side as everyone fusses over her dress, or even the jewelry she’s wearing. These are things I notice and like to capture to preserve as a memory you can revisit and share for years to come.

Never mind that Miss Rose is looking a little dusty. 😉

All photos were taken using a Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 macro lens. Absolutely no cropping has been done;  these are straight from the camera with only a slight vignette added. No adjusting for exposure, color, or tone was done. I think I underestimated this lens. Now I just need to find some time and a place to take it out and really stretch its legs.
