StrawberrySinghcom Simple Photo Studio (free)

> Free on Marketplace <

Over the years I have been continuously contacted by people that are new to Second Life and are interested in Second Life photography. They ask me a lot of questions about WindLight Settings and Graphic Settings and such, but one question that comes up often is, “how do I get a white background or a different colored background in my images?” I’ve had to explain how to rez a prim and create a backdrop using that.

So I had been thinking of putting up something on marketplace for free. Perhaps a very simple photo studio and pose stand. I mentioned it to my friend, Rogan Diesel of Diesel Works and he was kind enough to create exactly what I had in mind. It’s all mesh and brilliantly scripted to make it easy and simple to use.

I did a little video just outlining it a little bit for those that are new to SL and may need some help with that. I am embedding the video below but here is the link to it on youtube as well: http://youtu.be/rPo1w6SrY6U

Now here’s a little picture that I took using the photo studio and then I processed it in Photoshop.

lazy summer days

I’m wearing the adorable new hair from Exile called lazy summer days, which I adore. The outfit is from Erratic and it’s their special Valentine’s release. My favorite part are the shoes, they are so sexy and they fit right into my SLink mesh feet.

I hope you like the photo studio and pose stand and find it useful. If you do have any questions about it, feel free to email me. I am going away on vacation tomorrow so I might not be able to get back to you until after the 18th.

I will also try and do a Friday Find blog post before I leave tomorrow but just in case I’m not able to make it, I hope you guys have a fabulous week and a very Happy Valentine’s Day. If you are still looking for presents to get for your loved ones for Valentine’s Day, don’t forget that I still have my List of Second Life Content Creators that carry Gift Cards up from Christmas. Feel free to add any to the list. <3

Teach Me Something Meme!

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 →

Mirror Mirror

So I’ve been seeing a few people doing mirror images a lot recently, like this amazing one by the infamous Mr. Jefferson, and I thought I’d give it a try. I have to admit, Mr. Jefferson totally encouraged me to do it. He linked me to all the appropriate tutorials and even sent me the […] Continue reading →

Exodus Viewer

Since Kirstens Viewer is no longer available, you guys have been contacting me asking which viewer I’m now using. Therefore I thought I would do a video tutorial of my recent favorite viewer, Exodus Viewer. I’ve been using Exodus consistently since November 10th when I did this plurk about it. I had downloaded it but […] Continue reading →

Flickr Content Filters Tutorial

To view the above restricted picture on my flickr stream, check your safe search settings. A couple of days ago I discovered that my account on flickr was flagged, therefore marked as restricted.
