Photobombed while streaming Second Life

Photobombed while streaming Second Life

If you’re following me on Facebook or Twitter, you might have noticed my updates a few minutes before I started streaming Second Life live on my Youtube Gaming channel.

I planned to share photography tips last night while I streamed, but after watching it this morning I realized it didn’t go as well as I had planned. I missed several things that I wanted to cover such as my graphics settings and more details about adjusting windlight. So I plan to do another session covering more in-depth photography tips very soon, perhaps later this week or early next week. I’ll announce it on my Twitter and Facebook once I decide.

I also had some technical difficulties for the first 1 minute and 30 seconds so I suggest you jump to that spot if you plan to watch last night’s video. Also, one important thing I forgot to mention while I was streaming last night is if you use ctrl-0 to zoom in, you can then use ctrl-9 to go back to your regular view.

While I was streaming I got photobombed by the talented Mr. Jackson Redstar. He hopped over to the sim I was at and started dancing behind me. You can him see close to the end of the video. I loved his avatar so I quickly grabbed a photo of him when he stood beside me. He captured a great pic of us as well and posted it on his flickr. Thank you Jackson for watching and participating! I was quite nervous while streaming for the first time so it really helped me relax and enjoy it more.

I also enjoyed chatting with you guys while I was streaming. You can click over to my live page see last night’s chat.

Here is the video of the stream now uploaded to youtube:

I asked you guys to share what else you’d like to see me stream and I’ve gotten requests for more photo tips, which I will do, but also a few of you have asked me to do a tutorial on how to actually go about streaming yourselves. I am still in the process of learning and figuring it all out as I go along, so I will for sure try and do a tutorial a little later once I get a better hang of it myself.

Some other streams you should watch out for on YouTube Gaming:
> Second Life category on YouTube Gaming – find more live SL streamers
> Second Life Channel – maybe Linden Lab will start live streaming?
> Anya Ohmai’s stream – she’s giving live Zbrush lessons!
> LiftedPixel by Jessyka Richard – she streams quite often for hours at a time.
> Draxtor Despres – he’s been promising that he will start streaming soon!

UPDATE: Here is the raw black and white image I took while I was streaming last night:

Moving your own Avatar!

(this is a raw shot from sl) Yesterday I did a tutorial showing how you can move and position an avatar on a sim where you don’t have rez rights. The link to that is here: Moving Avatars. After I did that post, a few people on different social networks shared how you can move […] Continue reading →

Teach Me Something Meme!

Butterflyeyes3 Today I thought it would be a fun idea to do a meme where everyone can share a bit of their talents. Meme instructions: Blog a tutorial and teach me something that you think I might not know about (even if I do, doesn’t matter, do it anyways). The tutorial can be something within Second […] Continue reading →
