Title: July 2019 Photo Challenge.
Post by: Smoke on July 01, 2019, 10:38:13 PM
Hello again everyone and welcome to the July 2019 Photo Challenge.

I try and do a theme that no one has thought of before,and I don't think this has ever been done.  So at the risk of not receiving  a single entry this month......  :whistle:

The July 2019 Photo Challenge is going to celebrate.


Togetherness....


But Smoke, whatever do you mean by togetherness?.. ::). Togetherness means I'm looking for a picture of members with their dolls.  Yes, this means you. Doing some kind of activity. House hold chores, watching TV, getting a lap dance while watching TV.  ??? cooking, baking, partying at a club, holidays... whatever your creative mind can think of and ODC FORUM AND GALLERY RULES WILL ALLOW.

But Smoke! I wish to remain anonymous!!!!  I respect that. Your face does not need to be visible. You can wear a disguise, a shot with only your back visible. Your face does not need to be in the picture or recognizable , but enough of you needs to be in it that I can tell  organic human from doll.

Please! Do not blur out your face!! OR put some kind of crazy caricature over it with photoshop.  This will make your entry null and void. If you don't want your face in the photo then don't put it in there. This is why it is called a challenge. Are you up for it?


Examples.

Preamble. In no particular order ,but all rules  apply and will be enforced. Unless otherwise noted.

1) Have fun. That's an order.  :police:
2) One photograph per participant only please.
3)All the rules of the ODC Forum and Gallery apply.
4) All photos welcome, new or old. 
5) Vendors spamming this challenge will be dealt with harshly.
6) All rules discussed above in the opening monologue  apply,so please read everything.
7)A title for your entry and your doll or dolls names please.
8)Male doll participation is highly encouraged.
9) Nudity.... ( your doll,not you)  :o    is highly encouraged.  ;D
10 If you think it's a bad Idea for a photo, your probably right.Don't do it.  :scold:
11) Photoshop and faceapp are most definitely welcome.

Alrighty then. . See you in the pictures.  ;D

     Together, Feodora and I support a number of charities (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=10005.0) and fundraisers (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=10307.0). Most of these have wearable billboards (clothing, jewelry, accessories) that show our support for their cause.

WOO HOO!!   :yipee: :fireworks: :cheers: :fireworks: :yipee: :cheers:

We are off to a great start here. Two days into the challenge and we have 4 entries already!!! I'm liking it!  :D

So Camp has given me an Idea. I'm bringing  back the rating system.  The more of you that is in the picture the higher the rating up too five.  The rating has nothing to do with the final voting.
So previously in Noqs case with Feodora , Noq gets an automatic 5.  5/5




Incred with Myffy. Well Incred if she's a dirty girl that cooks! I'd say she's definitely a keeper!!  +1 for Myffy's sexy little tushie. + 1 for being a dirty girl, +3 for the full  Incred shot except his back is to the camera.  5/5

Ceej's forearm and hand only +1 and Sandy .   Sandy is NAYKED!!!! +2  and +1 for creativity. and + 1 because Sandy is so darn cute.  5/5

 Camp and  Kitty and Kitty is NAYKED! +2 and we have an almost full on Camporamic view +3 . Thats a 5/5.


So far it's all 5 out of 5. How will your pic rate?? Post one and find out.  ;D

Wow!! I see two more entries snuck in here while I was napping.


Excellent HH! Beauty and the Beast eh?  Well I can definitely see who the beauty is. :drool: Lets see here..  That is simply a great photograph.... 5/5







Nick and Kristy.... I'm really sorry things didn't work out between you two. ::) Such a cute couple.  But what do I know?
 Lana and Kristal  seem happy together for now, as long as there is enough shit in there path to destroy! ::)

Anyway, Kristy is NAYKED!! +5  What a nice tushie too, I can understand why you would want to bury your face in there. +2   :drool:  Nick view +1   creativity +5..

OH,oh....  I do see an  infraction of the rules here though.  ::) Although we did establish nudity,  the focus of the nudity seems to be the infraction.. Yes I can see it very clearly now.  ::) Since I would really like to see more of Kristy's delicious derriere , but that's not possible because your face is in the way,  we have a serious rule nine violation.   I'm going to have to nail you -8 for that one. I'm sorry my friend but rules are rules, we can't have members prancing around here breaking them , can we? .. It was all going.... wait A sec.  Look at that.. Add it all up!!! 5/5.... Amazing ONCE AGAIN!   ;D

Brie in "Manhandled"

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/manhandled.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=61100&fullsize=1)


I was a little thrown off by the theme, but when I saw some others only posting hands I thought I'd have a chance if I got Brie's bazookas to smash together. (I haven't totally chickened out, just couldn't think of an idea that included me in any other way for this challenge while doing something "together" and still having fun with the idea.  I was fully pictured in one of the Halloween photos last year, except for wearing a blindfold.)

I had to employ some trickery to make this photo work. Brie's breasts hang fairly low on her chest, so I arched her back to full, bent her neck forward, and leaned her back 10 degrees or so to make them appear higher on her chest and make for a more compact image. Being closer to camera, they look bigger, too. Of course, I couldn't show further down out of frame because the belly sticks out crazy in this pose. For the eyes, I added some extra cotton balls - two extra pieces behind the eye to make them bulge out, and another above to raise the eyebrows.  The grimacing teeth are one of the pieces from Von Rubber's tongue and teeth set. I tried to capture the shock of being suddenly grabbed from behind.

Did you use a camera-time-function or did you use a smartphone-voice-command for doing the shot?

Post by: JunkGuy on July 28, 2019, 09:01:20 AM
Did you use a camera-time-function or did you use a smartphone-voice-command for doing the shot?

Remote IR trigger for my Nikon D5300 on two second delay. Its just a cheap trigger I bought as part of an Insignia accessories kit from Best Buy (https://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-14-piece-dslr-mirrorless-camera-accessory-kit-black/5507800.p?skuId=5507800).

I wish I could have set delay to something like 5 seconds.  Trigger requires line of sight and a finger press, so I had to click trigger, drop it out of frame, then quickly grab her breasts, reach down to pick up trigger off floor and repeat, all from behind the sheet so I couldn't see what was going on up front or being able to use my teeth to trigger the release. I made dozens of photos where the squeeze was off center, breasts not at similar height, head tilted off to either side, etc. (This was the best and glasses are still a little askew, but acceptable under the 'surprise' action.) It would have been nice to have a wired foot trigger or something so I wouldn't have had to reset between each take.

Tried to get my camera to continuously take every few seconds but couldn't figure out how to activate this function if its got it. It definitely doesn't accept speech commands. Phone accepts speech and I think it can do continuous too but its photo quality isn't as good.

Here was my setup:

The cable trigger function has never worked on my cam. I used the self timer function 10s.
Was not easy - felt like a worm after 10 shots. After the session I recognized that I could increase the delay up to 20s.  :facepalm:

Maybe I'm wrong, but I saw a self timer function on the Nikon D5300.

When I took a series of pictures picking up/holding Myffy, I had to use the 20 second delay on my old D200; http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=5340.0

Looking back I could have used one of those pictures for this Challenge  :whistle:

Right, I can make it delay for 10 seconds. Almost every camera has a function like that. What I meant is to take a photo every few seconds without human interaction other than to start and stop the process. I couldn't be running back and forth from behind camera to the setup between each take, so I used the remote and the 2 second delay gave me just enough time to drop the trigger in her lap and grab her again. I wanted to press it once and get 5-10 photos out of each run though, as sometimes the remote bounced away and I had to move out from behind to locate it. The problem wasn't taking a photo, it was taking one with the hands, breasts, and face all in the right locations and being able to move my hands around a few times for each sequence would have increased the odds of getting it right in less time.

Ha! Mine, “the look”, basically gave me instant carpal tunnel damage.
I took that with my oversized cell phone with the doll straddling me.
I had to hold the phone with one hand behind my head without being able to see the view on the screen.
The angle I had to hold my wrist while being able to press the little graphic button was with excruciating pain at times.
I think I took thirty some try’s before I got “the one”.
