Mirai and I went on our first Honeymoon ♡＾▽＾♡ … Ok, I’m just kidding the reason why I brought Mirai along during my vacation was much more unromantic, I simply wanted to use this opportunity to get more experience with Doll Photography with focus on Outdoor.
2 weeks ago I took my yearly main vacation and traveled to France, in the Dordogne region. Taking a trip to Paris is something I want to do another time, I was just driving through it and the traffic appeared crazy with a lot of bumped cars, I was happy to leave this scenery behind.
For the travel I put Mirai in a bag, dressed in the most durable clothes she had and her Beanie to protect her hair. I have the impression that wearing the cap made it prettier ^^
Instead of dressing her as revealing as in previous posts, I really tried to make her look girly.
I always worry about making standing Doll pictures, a secure stand and expressive poses are sometimes hard to combine. I bought the SmartDoll Airstand before vacation, it really helps with creating more free poses. I really like how she looks beautiful in the nature.
I also tried to bring Mirai along during sightseeing, but my idea was wasted by the merciless heat that day, whenever I spotted a fitting area it was in full sunlight and I was drenched in sweat *icky*. I chose locations to something more nearby for most pictures.
At my vacation home base also was a pool, I thought it could be a nice location. Mirai appears quie excited all of a sudden. I put my tripod inside the pool where it wasn’t to deep. Days later I noticed that the tripod was still full of water D’Oh!
It’s the pool!!!
“And where are my other clothes”
*Nom Nom” Even though I only have her basic hands, they are quite useul for a variety of poses. I love these Azone AZO2 pants with suspenders, the button barely closes, but it looks so cool. After the snack a little workout is a good idea.
“Hurry! I can barely stand here”
I did other things during vacation, like visiting an aquarium, eating many Crêpe, hunting lizzards and general sightseeing without Mirai. Asde from that I tried my best to take nice pictures of my pretty doll. There happened no damage with Mirai during traveling, but next time I want to have a bag made for 1/3 dolls where I have to worry less about her safety.
The vacation with my Mirai SmartDoll was a lot of fun, I learned one or two things about Doll Photography during this vacation and maybe I could improve a little as well ;).
