A Princess, a Battle Tower, and IKEA Furniture


In the grim future of Princess Pricklepants there is only war.

If ever in the future you were looking for some depiction of the madness of war, we have one for you here.

The IKEA doll furniture set’s scaled really well for Princess.  We have been thinking about adding it to her cage since she seems to actually like the couch.  The slip cover is washable, and after this shoot it needs a wash.  I often hide a small plastic red squirrel in these because I like taking photos of squirrels too.  It’s on the IKEA shelf.

Photographer’s note: The flash managed to fill things in pretty well.  I took a few shots using various settings with and without flash.  It was late at night, so ambient lighting was poor, and I didn’t want to spend time setting up lights since we needed to get to bed. This was a quickie as Max and I had just built the tower (thanks Mom), so I didn’t get a tripod or the new monopod.  The shadows on the wall are a bit harsh, though they’re the only place it stands out.  We have a second tower in the works.  It was a very easy build.

Whether you had any idea that I thought that much about taking pictures of the hedgehog, or were you were more shocked at how quick and dirty I was with the setup?  If it was the latter you’re a photographer, and you’ll be thinking about how I could have better composed the photo, and that the colors are kind of muddy, and on and on.

f/5.6 1/30 ISO 800 – I used the kit lens, had to go with a bit more closed aperture to get the DoF to include the tower and hedgie.
