This is kind of an offshoot of a discussion happening in a "news discussion" thread, but it pertains to the BJD hobby as a whole & not just the company being discussed in that thread, so I thought it would be relevant to bring it up here. I'm mostly looking at the ways that dolls with tan or dark brown resin colors/skin tones are represented & presented by BJD companies in promotional & sample photos. Most BJD keepers are very aware that the ability to change wigs & eye colors is a big point of interest for many people, so personal aesthetics aren't really within the scope of what I have in mind. Here's the situation: when BJD's are presented with tan or "ebony" (darker brown) resin colors/skin tones, they are almost always presented in promo shots with light-colored eyes that rarely occur naturally with these skin tones. I know that things like colored contacts, hair dye, & not-naturally-colored wigs exist for humans, so I'm not trying to assert that these unusually colored options should never be used, but I can't think of a single instance where a tan or ebony colored doll is presented with both dark hair and dark brown eyes, which would normally be what you'd see in real life with these skin tones. The more popular companies seem to have the ability to have well-lit dolly sets & use high resolution photography, not to mention the capabilities for "cleaning up" a photo that are offered w/programs like photoshop, so I don't think it's an issue of having a hard time photographing these.
