Dress forms and photo shoots

Journal Entry: Thu May 22, 2014, 5:38 AM
Often I thought I had to choose between the two. Or that I had to go for a model posing in front of a plain white/black background.
Over the years I realized that artsy photo shoots are way_too_much_fun. So, I decided to do the practical, clear photos at home, on a dress form and further only do fun and artsy photo shoots!
In this journal I will show a compilation of things I have made in the past few years, left dress form, right photo shoot!

In the future I'll keep on doing things this way: A clear dress form picture to show the item as it is and further I'm going to participate in artsy shoots, where there is room for the whole team for creative input ^^

I'm going to get married within 9 days, but after my honeymoon, I'll be 100 % creating and shooting again :-)
I will also show pictures of my wedding, as I'm making the dress myself ^^

Best to everyone!

I have a quick question. I have a painting I'm working on of a character that wears clothing similar to this, lacy but dark, and I was wanting to make sure that it was okay for me to use your clothes in my picture before I did so.

Thanks for adding my feature to your favorites  ^_^  Also, I left a comment once before a long time ago saying how much I love your clothing design, but I might as well say it again.  You are an amazing designer, and your gowns are always gorgeous and look like they are made of the finest materials.
