Tsukiko in the shadows

February 9, 2013

Sharing another photo set of Dollfie Dream Tsukiko that features a stark contrast between bright highlights and deep shadows.

Achieved this effect thanks to similar lighting conditions as in another photo set of Tsukiko that had already showcased here, with early morning sunlight filtered through rolling shutters.

Added the necessary variation with Tsukiko clad in an more urban style outfit which creates a tomboyish, tough girl image that fits the photograph’s overall lighting atmosphere quite well.

Processed these first three images using a preset filter in Adobe Lightroom to enhance the effect of those dark shadows offset against brighter patches of light.

Just chillin

Have since clad Tsukiko in other outfits, with which also tried a different two tone blond wig on her. Although this other wig suited her, am far too attached to how she looks with this Leekeworld wig and its wavy, somewhat unkempt look.

Was similarly hesitant and ultimately disappointed when I tried different wigs on Shizuko and Kyouko. Once am decided on a particular look for them, cannot seem to go with a different one as they don’t feel like my Dollfie Dream anymore then.

Considering have much to learn in terms of posing variation and capturing each pose in the ideal angle, tried to experiment with Tsukiko in a relaxed pose as if she was just killing time chilling out.

Such a pose also enforces the more tomboyish image, fitting her overall look. All things considered it wasn’t too difficult to balance the Dollfie Dream like that and she luckily remained stable.

These last few captures were actually made in early evening, with the setting sun’s remaining bright rays filtered through window blinds. As you have noticed from viewing my other photo ports, this particular spot is a favorite thanks to the wonderful light at certain times of the year.
