This is my current avatar. She's an Usagi Child ^.^  

i was wondering around a SIM one day, and some dude private messaged me tellin' me he loved my look... he was very polite and kind, asked me to stop running and turn my AO off for him, so i did... the

I find it very entertaining to switch my looks according to my mood. I woke up one day and decided to change my shape into a more petite and "model" look.   Before (with Genesis Lab bento head):

   It's always better to put a few moments extra into the setup, rather than the many, many moments of correcting things in editing. But some things, like exposure and saturation, are generally finalised in editing. Lighting in SL is tricky, whether you work with windlights or with local lights.

   The colour intensity and lighting are very important for setting the mood though, along with the colour balance. I tend to reduce the saturation more often than I increase it, and I tend to use a cold pallet, and darker shading (occasionally contrasted with more intense highlights) - and that's all deliberate. I'm at home in darkness, just look at how uncomfortable Neph looks when I put her in a warm, bright scene (which even then has been desaturated a little).

 

Gardens of Eterea

   She feels out of place, both in her appearance, her pallet, and her expression. I told myself I had to go somewhere and do a shot that had more of a backdrop than the abysmal darkness of a sky entirely void of light, and Neph ended up reflecting how I felt in that environment. 

 

Home

   We're much more at home in a chillier, darker environment. Which didn't even require any much desaturation, as the only colours in sight are Neph's skin and eyes.

SL photog is a drastically different environment than 3DSMAX , Poser, or Vue. We don't have the same kind of control over lighting. We can't just rezz lights wherever we want, unless we have the rights to do that in a particular place.Of course the camera controls in Firestorm are not as precise as in a dedicated 3D program, so that makes it more difficult. My photog in SL is "action as it happens", as opposed to posed, so that adds a much higher degree of difficulty for me.

   We can. But I shan't advertise how here, because Dakota frightens me.

   I just wrote a tutorial on camera controls earlier in the week. We do have a lot of control, though!

Then please PM me about the lights, or meet me inworld. I'm on now.
