From what I've read, the darker the vinyl, the more temperamental it is: blemishes show better, things don't set as well, it's just harder to work with. Still no excuse IMO, if Danny Choo can do it a big company like Volks can figure it out.

Her leg fell off and she got sand in her thigh joint. Some water got it out though. Also there were some... sand mites or something that made an appearance. Will probably deal with the consequences later.

Apparently one or two people stared a lot but I didn’t notice. No one said a word.

I feel bad about the marks she’s getting from this trip, but at the same time it’s showing how much love is put into her. She’ll get a good cleaning when we return.

If you have a full frame camera and still want to get up close to them, I'd recommend a 35mm lens with a minimum focus distance of one foot or less. I can sometimes get decent results with an old nikon 35mm f/1.4, but you might want to look into something newer.

>> No.20675939

All I have right now is a battered old Canon t3i Rebel, but I'm planning to move to a Pentax K-1 when I'm able to, so I'll look into a lens that fits those specs for my next purchase. I had a rough year in 2018 because of a break-in and some other bullshit, so I'm hoping in 2019 will leave me room to justify a new camera. I really appreciate hearing back from you, your dolls and photos are honestly part of what got me into this hobby.

Much obliged.

>> No.20676105

I never touched a real camera and knew pretty much nothing about photography when I got my first doll. I bought a cheap used nex 5 when I got annoyed with my phone's camera and mostly just looked at what jp twitter people did to get pictures I liked and wikipedia'd the technical stuff I didn't know.
I didn't start spending a a noticeable amount of money on equipment until the camera was stolen last year and I needed to replace it.

Not the anon you're replying to either, but in my case, I already enjoyed photography as a hobby on the side, and originally got into dolls so I would always have something around to take photos of even when there was nothing else to photograph. That's why I'm looking for gear better than the macro lens I have -- it's good for what I normally do, but doesn't work too well for dolls.

You don’t have to drop huge money on a camera. Pick up any Rebel level camera from Canon, Nikon, Sony, and a kit lens and you will have everything you need. A $150 used camera setup and a $1000+ set up will look exactly the same when you are new to photography.

Only later once you have learned the basics and what you enjoy from photograph will you know what you want to upgrade too.

And beware the mega pixel trap! The bigger number is not relevant.

Indeed a higher Megapixel count (at least when it comes to small cameras and phones) can actually be detrimental.

You want real advice? Content is king. Don't obsess over expensive lenses or large sensors. It's been plaguing this general for years and it needs to stop. If you use a compact zoom an interchangeable lens nerd will make toxic remarks to make you feel inferior. if you get a 4/3 or aps-c camera a full frame nerd will do the same. If you get a full frame some no-talent hack will just wave his pro gear in your face and so on and so forth. And most of the time regardless of what people do settle on they just end up posting crystal clear fuckheug 4032x3024 pixel pictures that look no better than their shitty phone snapshots because they all believe the better camera takes the better pictures.

If you have talent it will show. If you don't, you need to take a ton of shitty pictures to understand what you're doing wrong.

tl;dr Don't buy gear. Study photography. Don't expect instant results.

So I was working on this photo and I think its going ok-ish, hard contrast photos are hard. But last year I felt nostalgic for my first Digital Camera, the Powershot A20 2.1MP from 2001. so I pulled it out and stuck it on the tripod, now sure its not as good as the version of this photo I am working on with my 70D. But for a 18 year old camera its not too bad, so don't discount older cameras for learning.

It’s also worst case scenario for a 18 year old point and shoot. But the point is it’s not a blurry peace of garbage and technically it’s all you need to learn the basics. Of course I don’t recommend grabbing something like this a phone is better. But new photographers need to spend less time zoomed and pixel peeping and more time looking at the overall shot. When I look at other peoples photos I don’t zoom in and check the sharpness and colour fringeing, I just look at the photo.

If that is your photo, buying lens isn't the priority.

you need lighting, learn lighting, and buy light bulbs.

In the future, 35mm to 50mm lens are suitable for dolls. But that is after you learn some photography first.

>> No.20680336

Obviously so.

>> No.20681063

I agree, I need to learn a lot more. It's just hard to get the entire doll into a photo with the setup I have now unless I'm far away, so it's frustrating.

Better lighting will also definitely help, it's dim as hell in here. I don't know where to start though to be honest, it's all a bit overwhelming.

>> No.20681761

More light can only get you so far.
Go study 3-point lighting. It's the most basic form of lighting.

Get your lenses. And pick up a tripod or make one. The rest will depend on your understanding of your camera.
The tripod is pivotal for taking photos in dinky environments, but not really needed for bright areas.

If you need assistance sketching poses have you considered an Artist's Minikin? They're much more useful because all the body parts present themselves as a 3d arrangement of primitives.

>> No.20697692

>>Dolls don't have as good articulation
>How bad are we talking about here?
Articulation is not amazing, look at any Volks doll and the knees flare out if you bend the knee past 90 degrees. The double-jointed elbow does something similar. The wrists can swivel but do not twist unless you buy an aftermarket part or mod it yourself. The necks and torsos are the least flexible. If you see a Volks doll in a fluid pose, the joints were either disconnected or they're using a custom spine if they're not using an aftermarket body altogether. Figma are more flexible if that's what you need them for.

>or proportions
They're supposedly 1/3 but they're more like 1/4 scale with long legs. Not that big an issue

>> No.20697814

If you really want articulation, get something with an Obitsu body, they're the most flexible compared to Volks and SMD albeit with their own aesthetic drawbacks. Azone uses Obitsu bodies with bigger torsos. Parabox is another supplier that uses the same frame sometimes with different length limbs. If you want something a bit different there's also Angel Philia. They're more shapely and their appearance tens to lean to the more erotic.

I’ve taken one in an instrument-shaped hard case internationally and a soft duffel bag case nationally. I had no troubles with airlines in either case with the bag as my “carry on” luggage.

The hard case felt easier to deal with because it was an “instrument” and it was much more protective. The duffel bag was more worrisome since she had less protection and I was fretting that I would have to gate check her due to different carry on size regulations or just plain running out of room in the overhead bins.

As long as the bag fit the size regulations, they won’t care what’s inside.

Why archive old photos? I stopped saving pictures to my hard drive years ago because the constant stream of new stuff on SNS is infinitely better, never ending and constantly fresh. Plus it's so plentiful I never found the need to flip though old photos to keep from getting bored.

Remember dollbooru? Despite its flaws and lack of participation it was still an archive and wasn't very good at it. Most people didn't even notice it was gone. Remember nijura? the 2chan archive? Again, no point. There's so much fresh content most people forgot about archives.

Wow talk about a makeover. Nice anon.


I think they only come out during the summer in Japan; you have to buy them in person at one of the Volks locations. You're best bet is a proxy service or enter Volks USA/international lotteries that happen to have them.

Pic related, Volks USA Dollpa in 2017 had a handful of tans in the lottery.

>> No.20778808

It's more accurate to say they're available for the warmer half of the year in the Dream Choice catalogue and (I think?) all year on the D'Coord selection? I think it's supposed to make it feel more exclusive? Special, maybe? It's a marketing thing I suppose, also
>While I know darker resin is harder to work with
It's vinyl, so the coloring process is different than resin and I'm not sure if it's any more difficult to work with than normal vinyl. They're worried darker skin tones won't sell well because Japan (generally) prefers lighter skin tones, which is why they took so long to make darker dolls in the first place. Note that their sunlight skin/tan resin line took off poorly in Japan but had a good amount of demand overseas, so take from that what you will.

>> No.20779009

I meant to say vinyl, my bad. They probably wouldn't sell as well as the current models, but I think making a batch of them every now and then would still definitely sell out, and (in my personal experience) if you can capitalize on a niche market, you can do well. It's good to have options, but I understand the hesitance. I just hope to have more options in the future.

>> No.20779024


I too was on the brink of getting a SmD until I got a tan DD myself. Wish Volks would get their head out of their ass since Choo is able to do it with no issues. The DD/anime doll market is different than the resin market and to be frank a lot of us fetishize that darker skin tone.

I'm in the same boat, I'm effectively shoehorned into getting a Smart Doll in my future (have you guys seen Prowess yet? I'm in love) because no one else makes darker-skinned anime-style dolls. If a smaller company like Choo's can figure out how to do it with consistent quality and turn a profit at it, I know without a doubt Volks could work it out. The market is definitely there, and they have nothing to lose tapping into it.

Related note: I'd kill for a SmD Moonlight. I don't even care if she's been pissed on at this point. If anyone wants to unload one, you have my wallet in your hands.

Pic very related.

Hi, I don't own any dolls, but I'm considering getting my first one. Trying to decide what brands I should consider.

What is compatibility like between different brand? Obviously clothing should be roughly so long as the dolls have similar measurements (though I guess certain things like shoes or gloves might be less interchangeable). But, what about parts? Can I take a head from a different brand and stick it on a dollfie or something? Obviously I don't expect that to be a universal yes or no, but you get my point. What about hands? Eyes? Wigs? etc.

>> No.20795220

For heads, adapters are available. But it's an easy mod. You shouldn't have to pay for that kind of thing. I haven't seen hand adpaters so modding is almost surely expected. Eyes and wigs are reliant on being the same size. If you don't have any basic modeling skills mixing parts might not be what you want to do.

For me, I never know when the chance to take a photo may arrive. And honestly, it's just fun to carry a doll around. Most people seem legitimately interested in my dolls (but at the same time, I live in a rural area, so they've probably never seen anything like her before.) I've talked about how taking photos of them is good practice for composition and light studies and other bullshit, and someone else I know has mentioned using theirs to sort of "demo" outfits before committing to making them full-scale -- and even if you don't have a reason to "legitimize" having a doll in public as a grown-ass adult, so what? Some people have even expressed an interest in getting one of their own through talking with me about anime dolls and other BJDs (and a lot of them seem to either collect or customize Monster High dolls, go figure.)

I'm not like Danny Choo ordering a child seat at restaurants for his. I just have one of mine with me at the grocery store or whatever, not drawing attention to it, but not denying it either. And while I'll admit at first it was pretty awkward, these days I'm too far gone to care. I already regard myself as too fucked up to be a part of "regular" society (not for edgy reasons, tl;dr child abuse and other bullshit) so for me, I have nothing to lose being that freak with the dolls. I'll take one for the team.

And if more people wind up joining the hobby through encountering them, it's better for everyone by breaking down the stigma associated with them.

Not too bad if you are thrifty and buy used.

The initial cost is very high. But it evens out assuming you are like most people and only buy a few dolls.

The first year was expensive but since then I’ve only bought wigs and clothes, which are not that expensive.

I don't mind. I've done a lot of things, from unpacking at walmart to managing forums on a big website, but right now I've had to do the NEET-y thing and move back home because my father's alzheimer's is getting pretty rough and while we fight the VA to pay for his benefits for an in-home carer, someone has to be here to care for him because he can't do it on his own anymore and I'm effectively the only one around to do it.. I'd say I can be awkward sometimes for sure, but generally I get on pretty well with anyone that doesn't have their head stuck up their own ass. In my experience at least, younger people get harassed a lot for their "deviant" interests, but once they hit adulthood, people tend to step back and consider that the other person is content to be a weirdo... and then they start asking where they can get their own. It takes all kinds, so might as well make yourself happy if it's not hurting anyone else.
