The August Category B challenge is:


Fashion Photography


So, get that lovely clothing and accessories out guys it's time to sell, sell, sell


Fashion photography is a genre of photography which is devoted to displaying clothing and other fashion items. Fashion photography is most often conducted for advertisements or fashion magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, or Elle. Fashion photography has developed its own aesthetic in which the clothes and fashions are enhanced by the presence of exotic locations or accessories. Typically used to sell something, this type of photography lures customers by glamourising the product. They are generally very creative and visually very interesting and can be taken in any location like a studio, an apartment, a rundown building or anywhere outdoors.
A fashion photographer should always prepare in advance. In this genre of photography, the location, lighting, makeup, stylists and the model play a significant role. However, you should also be open to ideas and suggestions. So, do a little research, try a search on the subject and get the old grey matter working.

There is some overlap with the Cat A Portrait contest so you may want to produce both photos in the same session.

This month's Category B rules are:
1. A new or recent photo shot by yourself, not taken before July 2017, and not posted on TDF before.
2. Members may enter one photo into each category, but it cannot be the same photo.
3. Your entry into any category may contain any mixture of one or more dolls.
4. Doll nudity is not acceptable. Think about what you would be prepared to show to your granny, and the advertising agency. Get those beautiful clothes and accessories on. Lingerie shots are allowed but be sure they fall inside the non-nude rule.
5. Photoshop or other image editing is restricted. Sorry guys but I'm looking for an 'As Shot' photograph and as such Photoshop or other software should not be the basis of the composition. Use of software is perfectly acceptable for removal of stands , props, etc and for cropping and conversion of an image along with some temperature modifications. (Any questions PM me)
6. Do not break any TDF rules regarding photos, and also comply to The Doll Album AUP (Acceptable Use Policy). If you choose to use erotic props, be especially mindful of this rule.
7. Please supply the name of your doll(s) in your photo, you may give it a title but not mandatory.

And remember: All kinds of dolls are able to participate in all categories!


This month's challenge will run until approx. 12 midnight GMT (end of the day) Sunday August 27 2017, with the next three days open for voting.
The top three winners (including any ties) will be announced on Thursday August 31 2017. When there are ties, there are more winners!

This is why I need a doll; for the fashion shoots! Hopefully it won't be long until I get a slender fashionista silicon of my own and then I can enter some photo competitions. :)

ha ha yeah, any excuse, it's the old "I've got nothing to wear". :lol:
I'm well familiar with that one, still, Hanna only has to give me 'that look' and I'm a jelly.

Yep, she certainly is a beauty, don't know who she is it was a stock photo but she's very pretty.
If you manage to find a doll who looks like that be sure to let me know.

I think I have an idea too glad that PS isn't allowed since I don't have it and seems most of the people who win use it.

Ebony (she has a tablet) just told the other girls about this theme. When they are finished discussing who will be the model(s) and what dresses they intend to use, then, only then it will be my turn 8O

@ILuvFems We won both of these competitions without using any PS except to convert from RAW to .jpg.
