Fluffy Floret

Posted by helen on August 15, 2015

After more than a decade of abuse,  my aged camera finally refused to work for me on my 2nd day at Barbie Convention. I dropped it on the hotel floor twice.  now it’s completely dead.

2 new cameras arrived. Both are “point & shoot”, no Manuel Mode 😦

Some testing shots:

Under the natural lights:

The Dress style comes from an illustration Robert Best did for Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2015 fundraising ADs.

with Flash:

not so bad. it meets my basic needs.

The Camera is in Pink, that’s not b/c I bought it for Barbie who loves Pink,


as you can see,  Pink costs $9 less than silver– which is the color I preferred. with this $9 saving, I bought an Insurgent Tris Barbie, she was on clearance sale at Target,  $7.48,  after sales Tax, she is still under $9. 🙂

    getting sentimental, my first camera was a gift from a friend, not only gave a camera, but also taught everything I needed to know to take a good picture. more than that, the Camera was a German-made Vintage Leica, sort like this one (I m sure my model was older than this), it was a great camera but loading film was not an easy task. wish I still had it… It should be worth something on the 2ndary market. 🙂
