Sometimes when I get new miniature figures, it takes me awhile to think just how I want to create and work them into a scene. Other times, I see a figure and know just how I want to photograph it. This was one of those times.
As soon as I saw this figure, I thought of the pinks curlers I remember everyone using when I was a child. Luckily they still make them and I easily ordered a set. To further my theme and idea, I added a mirror to the scene. I just love the nostalgia and memories this brings back for me, but also many other people have felt the same.

What objects can add to your theme? Or what objects detract from your theme or message? Here I have only used a mirror and a few curlers with the miniature figure.
I moved the curlers many times to get them just where I wanted. Don’t be afraid to move objects around. Sometimes, even a little bit makes a huge difference. There is an old saying in photography, a millimeter is a mile.
