The next show on my calendar is the Field of Dolls Online Show.Unlike the Pandemic Performance Panorama or the Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show, this is a standard, three section (Other/English/Western) performance show with a handful of fun classes. Realistic backgrounds are not required, but I know that as much as I love the look of a whiteboard entry, most performance judges prefer an arena setting. Several years ago, I built an indoor arena backdrop. I used it for a while, but eventually, I got tired of setting it up and tearing down. It got packed away, and I went back to white board.
Earlier this year, I spent a week cleaning and rearranging my basement. This allowed to set up a dedicated photo table. Since I no longer have to set up or tear down after every shoot, I decided it was time to bring back the indoor arena.
The arena wall was in good shape, but the fence had warped badly.
I made a new one, and Wren chased away the spiders.
Good as new.
Now I am ready to take photos for the Field of Dolls Online Show. Woo hoo!
