I did a choir tour with Singing City at the end of 1990 over New Year's of 1991. A great experience. While there I purchased my first set of then USSR political stacking dolls. I added another half dozen sets and a couple of US sets as well. These are parts of three Russian sets with just the smaller dolls shown. Shot in a light tent with 4 clamp lamps, two on either side, each with a 100w halogen bulb.

This is great. I wish that this did not have so much light reflection on the gang, kind od distracting. Hope that this does well....

this is a neat idea, but I'm looking too much at the relection of the light.

5 - Can't see Putin. Like the potential here. Criticism; perhaps a tighter crop, especially at the fore/bottom and a light reflection 'adjustment' may have made this better in my opinion. Possibly also some 'unusual' lighting to try to give a more 'dramatic' effect, or some 'depth' to this.

OMG! You've got all the former leaders of the defunct Soviet Union cryogenically frozen in those special chambers! What are you planning?? ;-)

Those are SO COOL. Do they all actually next inside each other? They do, don't they? wow. (well-lit photo, too, good job, etc.)

Nice idea and well executed... and not boring! from what I've seen so fare this has got to be in the top 10, the light could be a little les harsh though...
