Eloquence is a new events blog that has timely coverage of high-traffic and high-quality shopping events in Second Life. The site is very easy to navigate and has already covered majority of the big shopping events currently happening inworld.
I’m wearing both male and female versions of the shawl collared coats and tailored pants from Coco. These two outfits are available at two different events. The female version is available at FaMESHed and the male version is available The Mens Dept this month. I really like the way they did that, so you can match your significant other if you like. Since the name in my partner box is Manberry, I was stuck with him. :P
Both of these events were covered by Eloquence on their blog as well, so you can click over to see the rest of the items available there.
The build in the images you see was actually a little gift from Mr. William Weaver. He also showed me a few lighting tricks and such in Firestorm Phototools menu. So the suits may not look as shiny to you as they do in my images. I didn’t make them shinier in photoshop, it was actually all inworld settings that he has taught me.
This is the first time I’m actually using Firestorm. I never quite grasped all the settings in Phototools before but after learning what all of them do, I understand it a lot better. Of course my images are nowhere as artistic and realistic as his, but I am having a lot of fun just playing with all the settings. Once I learn a few more things from him, I’m thinking of doing some tutorials, that’s if you guys would be interesting in learning as well.
I do I have to say, because of him, I have permanently switched to using the Firestorm Viewer for all of my photography now.
UPDATE: Mr. William Weaver has actually made tutorials for Phototools himself and uploaded them to youtube, so I made a playlist of all of them: Phototools Tutorials by William Weaver
