Windlight Settings Page

I have added a page with windlight settings on the blog. I am usualy using them as a basis for the pictures I then edit for my posts. Those are to be used mainly in a studio but as you can see, they are also pretty good to use as is.

Shadows Variation 2
WL2
Shadows Variation 5
WL5
Shadows Variation 8
WL8

The three above settings are not very different. Like the title says it, they are variations, the last one being brighter while the others will render better skins without altering too much the skins shadows.

The pictures are not edited, just cropped.

Tillie Posing Stand

Tillie postprocessed

For any Second Life Fashion blogger, there is one item you absolutely need and which makes your life so much easier, it is a posing stand. Basicly, you drop your poses in it and scroll through them to choose the one which will compliment your outfit the best. Poses are so important to make good pictures. I cannot imagine going on blogging without my dear [Tillie] Posing Stand. I have it for years and it has never failed me. For beginners, it is even delivered with poses from reknown poses shops, being Diesel Works and Glitterati.

Occasionnaly, Tillie Ariantho is adding new features to her creation and you automatically receive a new box full of wonders. The last 4.0 version is bringing a very neat option: “[new] light/huds: You can now click a button in the blue LIGHT menu and on the hud LIGHT page to make lights follow the nearest avatar: button FOLLOW. This will make the light always being directed towards the nearest avatar.” I just love that. For a long time I have been avoiding playing with spotlights in Second Life because I was finding it too long to set up. Nuw, you just click a button and it is set. I don’t see how to make it easier.

While snapshotting the picture in world was easier, I had a bit more trouble to rework the light and shadows (dodge and burn) in Photoshop as there are three sources of light. For the rest, I have kept the same postprocessing method I usualy do, that is cleaning the picture than playing with curves (a lot), adding contrast, vibrance and then lowering the saturation. Here below, you see the raw shot before working on it.

Farewell Mischief

Hello,

before it is to late, i’ll try to give you some more reasons to go to Mischief to get great clothing which will be no more soon as the store is closing. Today, i’ve paired the Add Some Spice dress with jeans from League, a belt from Uzuri, necklace from fashionably dead and new hair from Truth for a chic casual look you could see in the street, well, ok, maybe not such a cleavage…
