Photo Compilation: June-July 2020

Image
Hi again! I hope everyone is doing well during this pandemic summer.
As I told you on one of my latest post, I've been thinking on sharing some photos that I take for Instagram and don't post here or those photos that, for some reason, never get published. The idea is to share them here and explain a little bit the inspiration and, if I can, share a little behind the scenes. 
Let's start with some Instagram pics. I took this for an event organized by @shrunken_dreams. For those of you who aren't familiar with these Instagram events, they're often organized to celebrate something or just to have fun. The person that organizes it sets a date and a theme and often provides a tag so you can find all the related posts. On that day, you share a pic following the theme and using the tag (hashtag), and the organizer often interacts with you and shares your content. It's a great way to find new accounts to follow on the platform, but also it provides a little challenge fo…

How to: making Mix and Match backgrounds for doll photography

If you were following my blog last year, you might know that part of my content was focused  on backgrounds for doll photography. They can really help highlight a doll and compliment her and make the photo look a bit more polished, specially if, like me, you don't have great photography skills or good equipment. On this post that I wrote last year, I made my own colorful backgrounds using cereal boxes and craft paint. The problem was that they were too small and I could just take photos of the doll from their waist up. After I wrote that post, I started thinking what could I use to make bigger backgrounds, but that wasn't hard to find or too expensive. Finally, around late August- early September, I came up with this idea and wanted to give it a try so badly. Unfortunately, life and moving houses got in the middle and didn't manage to do so until now. 


The main idea is to have something that's not too complicated to do, doesn't take much storage space and allows you…

A day by the pool

Wow, July arrived much sooner than I expected. Since this year college ended two weeks later than usual, I feel like summer is flying by much quicker. I've already made peace with the fact that won't be able to do all the things and write all the posts I would like to. Luckily, since next year I only have to take 3 classes, I will manage to find some time to post. 
This post is a bit unexpected, and it's not what I had planned to post next. I had planned a part 2 of my Dolls in a poolpost, with an idea that I had had in mind for a few months. Unfortunately, it didn't work out and the photos didn't look very good, so I had to scratch that. Since I woke up with a headache a couple of times, I decided to take things slowly and a couple of "me days" to avoid getting sick (I usually get a bit sick right after college, due to the stress). Therefore, I hadn't been working on anything else. I was planning on doing a craft/ photo background type of post later o…
