Today I will show you almost twice the same picture but I was not happy with the first one I had taken (the one here under) and I will explain why.
At first I had not really planned on lighting the picture this way but as I was testing and trying in Photoshop, the idea came it was the perfect pose for this kind of light coming from one side. After my usual editing, I have simply used a soft light layer with a basic gradient to do it.
Unfortunately, the windlight settings I had chosen in Second Life were not appropriate as you can see the shadow of my avatar screened on the background, showing the angle used. The colors are more neutral and that is why I had gone with it first. But the more I look at the picture, the more I feel there is something weird with the shadows.
I have then decided to try again in Second Life and use windlight settings with an angle more appropriate. It actualy is an angle for dawn or dusk so the picture has a lot more orange in it.
Next time, I guess I should better plan my picture and what I want to do in the end. In this case, I should have probably used lamps in Second Life rather than playing with windlight setting.
