> 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.
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

Social networks are for socializing and meeting like-minded people online that you can chat with and possibly create bonds and friendships. That being said, my post will focus on how a Second Life resident can use social networks (presumably using their SL pseudonym) to promote their business or brand. I’ve shared a list of all […] Continue reading →

If you have a Facebook profile for your Second Life avatar, you probably already know that the SL community on Facebook is very friendly and active.

A couple of weeks ago I was inspired by this pose and dress and wanted to create an image of a girl falling apart in pieces.

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.
