First attempts at professional-quality doll photography

Like anything you have to learn via trial and error, using a professional-grade digital camera for the first time was kind of frustrating. After taking these shots, I actually discovered how to use certain settings to improve the lighting and focus, so I hope to have even better photographs to show you soon.

In the meantime, here are some of my first attempts at professional-quality doll photography.

For early attempts they aren't bad, but I intend to make the next batch even better!
