In RL if I go into a windowless room or a cave and there are no lights on, it will be so dark I can't see my hand in front of my face. Is such darkness possible in SL, even at the midnight setting there is some light, can even that be turned off. I obviously don't want to take black pictures, but I do have some ideas for pictures illuminated only by light sources with in scene. An example would be me holding a lantern in a cave, where the only light comes from the lantern. Is this possible in SL, if so how?

You might be able to fake it by using layers and/or masking and darkening parts of the image or playing with the opacity settings for some of the layers. Good luck.

Windlight (SS) Atmos 00:00 2 makes the whole room dark. There are few more, I just took first one from the list :)

In front of my avi is a candle with the light turned on, Intensity: 0.612, Radius: 1.800, Faloff: 1.500.  

Is this what you had in mind?

Edit: typos and just to say that the candle had no texture in the light tab, you can upload any type of texture and it will modify the light in a way that it offers you even more control over it.

Feel free to post real life image as an example of want you'd like to recreate in-world and I bet we can think of something!

The standard windlight presets might not work but you can just make a new windlight preset and turn off all sun/moon and ambient lights. I use it to test my flashlights. It looks like Tamara found a few presets that are out there. :P

My latest experimental shot in learning about light, I had the neon from another picture I did recently for a painting.

So I had a little bit of time to get on today and I was going to do some more experimenting, as well as try to get some pictures for this art show opening up next week for sensual adult images, but then my SL husband who I hadn't seen in a week was on so I got distracted from the picture taking for a bit,but I did get a few after he left. this is one I did that is forum acceptable. Oh and yes i did get several images that I can use in that show, not all of them in the dark.

I am assuming there will be an announcement of the opening when it actually opens which i think is May 3rd, if there isn't I will make one.

Ok so today I took this while setting up for the Spring Sensuality show, behind me is my latest experiment with light and shadow. Probably my hottest image on SL yet.

There is "Ambient Dark" Windlight. If there are no light sources nearby the scene is completely pitch black, you cannot see anything.
