Here is my photography tip:

Make sure your background is nice! I think a having a good background makes for more interesting pictures :) 

Here are Mama Hen's questions:

 Which do you like better, taking pictures indoors or outdoors?

I really like taking pictures outside because of the more natural light :)

2. What is your favourite outfit (and doll) to take pictures of?

I love taking pictures of any historical outfit--it adds a really neat element to pictures :) I think my favorite doll to take pictures of has to be Bella or Cora ;)

3. What camera do you use?

I use the Nikon Coolpix L830 :) It's a really great camera for beginners, and it takes really good videos! Here's a picture of it from Google Images:

4. Is there a (doll or human) photographer who inspires you?

You (Mama Hen) were actually one of the first doll photography blogs I had found! I was (and still am!) so captivated by your lovely photos and your life-like poses of your dolls! You are a huge inspiration to me :) 

Thank you again, Mama Hen!
