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:

Streaming Second Life

YouTube Gaming went live on August 26th, 2015 and since then I’ve been thinking about streaming Second Life. I’ve created my own YouTube Gaming Channel and tested out streaming for a few minutes last week. It worked out well so I am thinking of streaming some photography tips and whatever else I can think of. […] Continue reading →

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost is the story of Adam and Eve’s original sin, brought to you by The Basilique. In 2014 it was a theater production, in which residents purchased tickets to go see the live action play inworld with their friends and family. Now, they have produced Paradise Lost – the movie, a 60 minute machinima production made entirely […] Continue reading →


(click here for a raw shot) The definition of Luxuria is lust or sexual desire. Personified as one of the deadly sins, it is also the name of a store in Second Life owned by Roslin Petion. Roslin is a brilliant texture artist and her store is known for sensual lingerie. Great thing is that […] Continue reading →

Juggling Raccoons

(click here for a raw shot) Every time The Arcade Gacha event is about to start there are always a few designers I’m always looking forward to. Mutresse is one of those designers. They create the most interesting characters, from adorable Garden Gnomes to sexy Butlers you can’t help but flirt with. This time around […] Continue reading →

Second Life Avatar Physics

(available on marketplace) Linden Lab introduced Avatar physics to Second Life back in 2011. I was never a big fan of it, I’m still not to be honest. However, ever since fitted mesh bodies have been released, physics have not looked so bad with them. The bouncing effect is a lot more subtle with the […] Continue reading →

Genesis Mesh Heads

This is the first time I’ve tried a Genesis head and I thought it was nicely done. I liked this one especially because it has such different features than most of the mesh heads I’ve seen so far. I am probably never going to wear this head again as I don’t feel like myself in […] Continue reading →

Secret Linden Crush

Mr. Draxtor Despres recently gave me an idea for a Monday Meme. He said I should ask everyone if they have a secret crush on a Linden. Then he told me who his secret crush was. I won’t reveal his crush because I plan on blackmailing him with it later. :P I decided not to make this a […] Continue reading →

Happy Eid!

Eid al-Fitr has arrived and it’s been a wonderfully spiritual month of Ramadan for me. Ramadan is one of my most favorite months of the year. It’s a time my family really comes together. We wake up before sunrise and eat together then open our fasts together after sunset. We read the Quran together, we pray […] Continue reading →

Siren’s Call

I just finished going through all of Hair Fair and some of my most favorite hair there is from Exile, for both men and women. The hair in the first image is called Siren’s Call and it’s just incredibly sexy. Hair Fair is now open. There are four sims altogether: Blonde Sim, Brunette Sim, Redhead Sim […] Continue reading →

Just Because

I recently found a new-to-me store on marketplace, Just Because. The mesh is  great quality but what I love is that they have fitmesh for the Maitreya body (and other mesh bodies) that fits perfectly. The prices are great as well. Both the top and bottom I’m wearing were only L$75 each. The hip chain […] Continue reading →
