...or Vignette Time!

Okay so this is kind of silly, but we're seriously stuck in the house due to Snowpocalypse II! Someone came by and plowed the road... only to leave a huuuuge pile of packed snow stuff at the end of our drive, and I don't mean the driveway, I mean the little pipestem that we live off of that connects to the road! *cries*

That totally cracks me up.

I never would have guessed my dolls would be concerned with morality. *giggles*

I actually stole it from a medical transcription, so I can't really take credit for anything but applying it to Martel. My sister's been working on her master's thesis and we've many strange and interesting books lying around here at the moment.

At least he thinks he has one! LOL.
02.06.10 (UTC)
Clearly. Just wait until he starts wondering if Dolls have Consciences. ;)

LOLOLOL. I love them both.

And how in the %&*^ do you get such perspective in your pics that makes it look as if they are in scale with the whole room? That's so awesome.

Okay. See the bed? The dolls were standing on a table that was placed about 5 ft from the closest edge of the bed. The table stands about 20" high. Then I got down on my knees and took pictures straight at the dolls or slightly below their level, making sure they look large and natural. I wasn't sure it was entirely successful. I also shot the pictures at F3.5-F4 so that I have a shorter depth of field - the background blurs and I think that also helps a little with the perspective problem. But Thanks for noticing - That's really what this was about - an experiment in perspective.

And sorry for the over-long answer.

That's not an over long answer. I sincerely wanted to know. You did an amazing job too. I've seriously got to get back in the picture taking game and this is an awesome example of something to strive towards.

Thank you! Really!! I've been wanting to see if I can use my house as a background for awhile, so I've been thinking about how exactly I need to arrange them so that I can make vignettes in - my bedroom or kitchen, and actually have it look like they're talking to each other in a real house. I've used my bed before, but I wanted to see if I could succeed on a larger scale.

I was just about to comment on this. Nicely done.
02.07.10 (UTC)
Well, it's a heck of a lot simpler than taking them into the basement doll - room and trying to get everything just so.

I believe it. It's all about perspective.

Thanks!

*giggles* Oh, what a dilemma! WHERE to locate one's conscience. Heehee! Such a naughty guy :3
02.07.10 (UTC)
Even more importantly, where does a doll locate its conscience? XD
02.07.10 (UTC)
Dude Aston, just hit him. :P He can't have known he did something bad if he didn't have a conscious. Right? Oooh dolly philosophy.
02.07.10 (UTC)
haha! Exactly.

Too bad I don't think Aston would ever raise a hand to him. Martel provides him with too much entertainment.
02.07.10 (UTC)
Great photos, as always! Gotta love Martel and Aston's musings.


You have GLOW-STARS on your ceiling! *love!*

02.07.10 (UTC)
haha! Well... I put them back in their comfy places on the dresser and Martel is looking expectantly at Aston, waiting for some sort of response or advice. Purely by chance. Gotta love dolls! LOL!


I've had those glow stars since we moved into this house when I was 13.
02.07.10 (UTC)
I had them all over my room too. The ceiling, walls, some of the furniture... it was like sleeping in the sky every night. Seeing yours made me think about how much I miss that, silly as it was.
02.07.10 (UTC)
I kinda get the feeling Martel is just egging Aston on?
Great photos, you got the perspective just right!
02.07.10 (UTC)
I never can tell with Martel. ;)
02.07.10 (UTC)
Hilarious! Fantastic photos.

Why do I have a feeling that this is not a new tune for Martel?
02.07.10 (UTC)
Martel... *pats him on the head*

*sigh*
02.07.10 (UTC)
Brilliant, brilliant! I must be Martel's biggest fan :)!

Thank you~ ♥
