I need to do a clean out of my photo folders, badly. I have some stuff from YEARS ago that’s been sitting "waiting for me to go back and finish exploring". Or is just stuff I took and never got around to posting. So..time to post it! There will also be some babbling in this post.
But first, the links!
Wait..first..a me showing off. I entered the White Armory Photo contest last month. Did not win but I am SO proud of the photo I took. I used no post processing on it. But it looks AMAZING. The reflection trick I stumbled on back in December was used again for it.
Ok now the links, with a teaser shot or two from some of them.
This one is the biggest and spans the longest amount of time. It's got all kinds of stuff in it. It's got photo shoots, Exploring of some holiday locations, my Tea Garden and Nevermore Plot. None Steelhead events, Sims I never finished mucking about. I could have put a lot of them into there own photo set, but decided not to. Because I am lazy :P You can tell the REALLY old stuff due to me being in my old Luskwood avi.
This is an interesting lil place I found in the destination guide. http://secondlife.com/destination/the-crooked-house this recreation of Robert A. Heinlein's "Crooked House" by Seifert Surface. Explore the interconnected rooms of the house, which is modeled on a four-dimensional hypercube. Its good to go play in for a bit.
This is a pretty sim designed by Andrek Lowell, whose sims I am a huge fan of. It's more commercial then the others, you can rent a house here. And I couldn't find any quests. But it still holds all his usual artistry.
Shots from various Steelhead events. Mostly of Tensai and Lunar's amazing Friday night Dance builds.
I learned of this amazing show from Honour's blog I went human for it and it was WORTH IT!
And lastly some outtakes from holiday images, and a sim I half way explored that was quite pretty.
Now for the babbling.
Firstly, WOW.I must give a public thank you to Elise Capalini for her generosity. My post about the sim Cake touched her and Pipsqueak Fiddlesticks. Pipsqueak owns the sim and Elise is the owner of Cupcakes & poetry. Elise gifted me with some of her wonderful cupycake items. It's a first for me to get something due to a blog post so I wanted to give her a public thank you.
Secondly, I am doing a complete redo of my clothing inventory. Mostly brought on by the hours spent looking for just the right color for Luna's challenge. I used to just sort by color. Now I'm doing it first by length, then by color, then by shade. And making a folder for pants outfits and separates. Which I'm going to try getting more of. I usually just toss on a gown and Go. But HEY, mixing and matching tops and bottoms is fun as well!
Re-organizing my inventory is something I've been wanting to do for a while. Some of my clothing folders are HUGE, *coughcoughpinkandpurplecoughcough* so its hard to find the outfit I want. One day I'll sort the "objects" folder, but OYE that's going to harder as I have to rez stuff.
But clothing is a start! I'm also deleting outfits that are just..BAD.
Thirdly, I have been drooling over these photos. I really want to learn to both style and pose myself like this and take photos like this as well. I guess I'd have to delve more into post processing then I do though. But first the in world stuff, as the photo stuff also needs my comp to get an upgrade so I can use shadows!
I've looked into a few modeling schools, but I am leery of them. Due to the whole, HEY I'm a fur, thing. Someone today did point me to some classes that might be what I am looking for. So we'll see.
Fourthly, Adar will not be joining me in this weeks color challenge. Men’s clothing choices rather SUCK and finding anything in a super almost white shade of blue that would look good on him. Proved to be impossible. So hopefully next weeks color will work out for him to join me in the shoot.,
And lastly, Renaissance faire season is starting. Academy classes for OKRF are gearing up, every other weekend. So some 52 weeks posts will be a day or so later then usual till around mid June. I will NOT be giving up on them! Part of the challenge is to get it done no matter what else right? So..yes, still doing them even as my life gets a bit more busy.
And that's all. I have a disappearing Sim post to make later and then FINDING the sim for this weeks challenge to do still.
