Victorian Figure

I can’t resist poking around a junk shop looking for interesting bits and pieces, and last autumn I found this – a Victorian/Edwardian children’s doll which would hopefully be useful as a subject for a few stock photographs. All shot on a Canon 60D  + Zuiko 50mm f3.5 macro lens, post processed in Photoshop and DXO Filmpack.

First – shot – a bit of an abstract but the use of DXO has given the finished result a grey/silver sheen.

Next – similar but with a green cast.

No messing with colour rendition here – just a simple shadow and shapes.

Layers here – and the use of low winter sunlight and a window in the background.

Finally just a shadow – there are some trees a hundred yards away which cast some lovely diffuse shadows in the winter.

As always these shots are taken for the book cover market, and all comments, critiques and questions are welcome.

Thanks for looking – hope you like them and they give you some creative ideas for your photography
