Day 38: “Mom Ma”
This is no. 18 in the Fear Series. Dolls creep me out a bit, even though I was once a girl and loved to play with them. This one, in particular, is the worst of the bunch in my girls’ playroom…the glossy eyes, powdery pale skin, dark matted hair…she even smells like baby powder. [shivers] I suppose baby power is better than moth balls.
1/40 sec @ f 2.2, 50mm, ISO 200, Canon 480EX II strobe @ 1/4 bare
How I did it: Dolly is actually hanging, balanced atop a white, interior door here, face pointed down. I set the strobe at the base, butt up against the door, and shot it directly at Dolly’s face, while I came in at a slight angle about 2 feet away from her to take the shot.
