And the reason I say “one” of my first is because I dabbled in the “open-mouth” style when I first started making bears a very long time ago. I just couldn’t get the hang of it so I gave up.
I have recently been working harder on quality rather than quantity in my teddy bear world. So I decided to dabble a bit with the open mouth style.
I must say I am pleased with the results and will have to try another one soon.
I had a very hard time with the photo session yesterday. I am sure I took over 100 pictures indoors using my black background and then practicing with white. I could not get the photos to accurately display this bear.
So, I took him outside and sat him on the deck.
Pontus wanted to know who the stranger on the deck was (and he wasn’t getting any closer than three feet).
Katrina said “hey, who’s the new guy?” and went right up to say “Hi!”
I am grateful for a day without rain here in our Northern rainforest Juneau. It helped with the photo session and also the demeanor of the photographer, as we have had steady pouring rain most of this month.
Love and hugs to all. Thank you! Vicki
