This is a fun idea. I will be getting it...
In April 2009, we will unveil our new book, "FDQ: In Focus". After many years of working towards creating the best and most exciting doll photography and styling in the business, we decided that it would be fun to share the tips and tricks we have all learned along the way by putting it all together in a handy guide.
"In Focus" is an easy to follow book that is specifically designed for the doll collector and photography enthusiast.
In it, we take you through the process of getting to know your camera, setting up shots, creating sets and the importance of styling to get that perfect shot.
If you order between now and April 1st, you can purchase In Focus for only $19.99 for subscribers, and $24.99 for non-subscribers. After April 1st, the price will be $24.99 for subscribers and $29.99 for non-subscribers. Price includes shipping in the US only. Additional shipping fees apply for foreign orders.
Learn From The Pros
If you are feeling a bit lost when you pick up your camera, we will take you through an easy check list to prepare your photoshoot and give you a list of tools and accessories our photographers keep on hand to create the best shots that you see in FDQ, both in studio and on location (or a little bit of both, as you can see on the left!)
We will also share the TEN THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER DO WHEN SHOOTING A DOLL! If you avoid these pitfalls, you will have professional, elegant photos of your dolls, whether you are using the shot for your webpage, auction or for publication in a glossy magazine like Fashion Doll Quarterly.
Publisher Pat Henry will be at Tonner Con, Barbie Con 2009 and other venues this year, and will have copies for sale on the premises. Come and say hello and feel free to ask questions about getting your shot!
In Focus is 128 pages, 69 illustrations, tips, tricks and ideas to inspire you to create beautfiul shots of your favorite dolls on sets, studio backdrops and on location! At 8.5"x11", it is easy to bring with you and refer to any time you want to take photos!
