This is in response to @TheBluebird14 post! It was about taking your dolls out in public so here is my advice!
I take my dolls out in public a tone. And I sometimes go too very busy places, like the Golden Gate Bridge. That photo shoot took a lot of courage. When I am going to take photos of my dolls, I just think of how the finished product will look, and sometimes that motivates me to take my dolls out. Another option is put your doll in a tote bag, (or any type of bag) and go too somewhere that is somewhat private. There are a lot of nooks and crannies that are fun to photo shoot in.
I have never had a bad experience with taking my dolls out in public, but sometimes people talk to me! I once got a new subscriber on my Youtube channel from taking photos. If you have someone starring at you try to start a conversation or just think in your head what's your problem? I am just doing the thing I love.
Hope this helps!
(I hope this doesn't seem rude to the people starring.... and I know that I also commented this on the forum post)
