There are a bunch of great resources on SL photography out on the web. 

Strawberry Singh has some great video tutorials on SL photography on her blog.

Over at Kultivate Magazine's blog Myra Wildmist has a number of blog entries on photography that you might find helpful.

And then googling this just turned up another site that has a number of links to various blogs and vlogs: http://www.bvnsl.com/photography-tutorials/

And do check out flickr as well if you are not there already -- there's so much SL photography there to awe and inspire you forever! Sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming seeing all of the amazing talent there, but it can also help you to find your own unique style and approach!

Have fun!

 

ETA: @LittleMe Jewell Did you mean Backdrop Cove? That is a great backdrop spot that is less laggy than Backdrop City, well at least until everyone finds it... And they do allow you to rez objects there I believe.

Thank you thank you thank you! And to LittleMe!!

(Google . . . now, there's a concept that apparently hadn't occurred to me! Duh.)

I'm sure I'll be doing more than my share of vanity shots, but what I'd really like to do is experiment more with pics that place my avatar in interesting settings, and explore the relationship between her and the environment. Can anyone recommend good, general tutorials on photography in SL? 

Also, lighting and pose systems. They'd (both) need to be ones that worked as attachments, as I expect I won't have rez perms in the places I'll want to take pics.

I have much fun playing with different windlight settings, using the dropdown and slider in Phototools. I also have two parameters that I play around with a bit,  what in real life is referred to as focal length and aperture... Focal length impacts the perspective and field-of-view, and together with aperture it changes your depth-of-field (how much of the picture that will stay in focus...) I do a lot of photography in RL, and I quite enjoy it in SL too,  so I'll try to get some pointers and hints written down and illustrated in my (just-recently-started) blog :)

In addition to City and Cove, there's also a Backdrop Village that will let you rez stuff...

Today is my 15th rezday (technically Debi's rez day) so I decided to go find a fun "old" build. This one isn't really that old having been built in 2011, but it was old enough for my desire to get nostalgic. It's a fun build with all kinds of freebies. If you want to visit Rizal Games here's your taxi: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rizal/119/108/23

Who knew you could do one arm handstands at my age!

Don't know why I have so much fun on these bouncy house things.

Ending the adventure with a bike ride and a chocolate ice cream. All freebies found in the shops here.

Yes, that is the one.  I saw someone here mention it recently - probably you.

There are some very nice sims that allow rez right if you join the group. Mother Road is my favorite place, and group members can rez.  Also hangars liquides allows rezzing in at least some of the sims. Oh and Surfers bay, though the group membership is expensive. There are many others but those are just a few that i can think of right off the top of my head.

I'm really not that into this Halloween-stuff, but I'm kind of afraid of mice - so for me this is a scary outfit, ok ;) ?

Staring towards beautiful sunrise in my new swimming pool location at Gaeta 1 (:ph34r: the never to be finished continent ?).

Your post prompted me to play a bit last night in FS with the phototools and Windlight settings. A bit complicated at first, but fun! And lots of things to try.

Where is your blog? (I can't figure out how to display forum signatures here!)

Click on your name up top and then choose "Account settings" in the dropdown. Then you'll see a button on the left called "Signature." If you click that you'll see a way to edit your own signature and way to turn on other people's signatures.

Not that much there yet - but here it is: LaLaLand :)
