Find Your Reflection by prophetek Find Your Reflection by prophetek
Ursula has been on a bit of a reflective journey. There are a bunch of shots in this shoot I'll probably upload in the next few days.

Taken in the Redwood Plantation in the Otways in Victoria, Australia.

Ursula is an Iplehouse Carina from [link]

Thank you very much :)
Oh, this is such a lovely shot~ I love how strands or her hair are naturally falling off her shoulders, together with her pose it gives a nice, realistic feeling. ^^

The scenery is really beautiful, too. :heart:

Thank you very much, I can't take credit for the idea though, Mon suggested it and I'm really happy with how it turned out. X3

It was a really nice place to visit, I wish I could be bothered taking her more places but she's pretty heavy to carry around. XD
Aww, well that makes it a lovely collaboration, then. x3 It's always nice to have someone with you when taking photos so you can toss ideas around... I'm not all that helpful when I'm assisting *yenna-photo though, as I mostly just come up with silly things. x'D

Haha, I know that feeling. xD Back in the countryside there's a lot of forest around and sometimes I get these really specific visions, so I scour several locations in search of the perfect one... back when I still had my Chrom, it ended up being really tiring for my arm after a while (especially since I had to be careful of his paws to avoid chipping the blushing). :'D But I was always too lazy to pack him into a carrier bag to make it a little easier for myself... or search for a place first and only then fetch the doll, haha.

Heh yeah, we should go out and do shoots together more often, it was a lot of fun. We do it occasionally but we haven't done it in a while. It's handy even just to have someone to see the shot from the angle you'll be taking it from while trying to pose the doll, often it doesn't look right when you walk back a few steps. XD

Hehe yeah that'd be a pain in the ass. I took a big carrier for that reason, and left it in the car until I'd found some spots, but it did mean that on the longer walks I just didn't want to go back to the car and get her if I found a good spot as it'd mean hours of walking back with a big bag. :S

I do love your shots in the countryside though, the extra work really pays off. :3
Very true! It saves a lot of time going back and forth to check how the doll looks, hehe. The other person can also easily look for other nice angles to suggest to the photographer~ :3

Yeah, when you have limited time to take the photos it's better to carry the doll with you... but when there's a chance to come back later, then it might be a good idea to go exploring on one day and then return with the doll the next day -- that is, as long as weather conditions don't interfere, haha. xD

Thank you! :3 I do have a bit of forest scenery where I currently live, too, but sadly they're small areas and have a lot of joggers and people with dogs around... >__<;; It can be really distracting when people keep walking past you... at least it is for me, 'cause at my parents' place even the nearest neighbours live several kilometers away, so I'm used to being able to do photography undisturbed. :'D;

True true, but I guess it all relies on having the time and the weather permitting. I hope we can get out and do some more shots soon. Mon was originally going to do some shots with her dolls Lucy and Nacho but unfortunately the place we wanted to shoot was closed due to flooding damage. Hopefully next time we visit it'll be open again as it's an important place for their story due to some shots being done there with Lucy's younger version.

Ahh that's a shame. Yeah we don't have a lot of places near our house that people don't visit. There are some parks and nicer nature areas but we have the same kind of problem, people and cars coming through. It kind of puts you off the shoot a bit with them looking, even if they don't interfere. Makes me nervous at least. XD
Aww, that's too bad about the flooding! :< Hopefully you'll have better luck the next time you visit~

Yeah, it's kind of unnerving to be watched, especially if you're alone. xD;; Sometimes people even stop to stare silently for a good while before they continue walking. That's why here I prefer to go out with friends, it's more reassuring to have someone else with you. x'D Once I have time to paint Apate's armors, I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and go out, though. I'd love to get photos of her in snow, 'cause white is her colour. :3 And preferably before there's too much snow, so that she doesn't sink into it ahaha...
