Blythe Doll Spring Fling 2010

I just love spring time and one of my favorite pastimes is photographing my Blythe dolls outdoors in nature and while I'm traveling.

We were lucky to get a warm spell and I noticed some beautiful purple flowers in my garden. I knew right away which blythe doll I was going to feature and in which dress.

I selected an Ashton Drake Blythe doll Medieval Mood I named Sophia, wearing a vintage PJ Barbie flower dress. I couldn't have planned it better. The orange in the dress brought out the orange in the center of the flowers and the purple flower petals brought out the lovely purple flowers in the orange dress.

I'm not sure how I come up with these concepts but what helps is that I don't take it too seriously. I see some pics that have the perfect things but the end result is a bit too much like other people's pictures. Just have fun with it and even if the shots aren't unique at least you can put your own spin on it.

I'm not saying my pics are great but my sister in law did tell me that she felt my shots were better than the ones she saw in books and mags. I was extremely flattered and even though she may have just been being nice cause she's family it's still made me feel great and that's what it should all be about.

You can store your pics for free at Flickr.com but your are limited. If you do not want any restrictions then a paid pro account would be your best bet. Flickr is more than photo storage, it's also a social network and the Blythe community is strong on there and it's fun.

I started a thread on the Plastic Paradise forum called Blythe doll Spring Fling. Plastic Paradise is my most favorite Blythe forum so please feel free to join and add your Blythe spring pics too

I hope you enjoyed my blog and pictures. If you have any questions please feel free to comment here.
