True. They do make big difference. But a good part of the difference in these two images is the camera. Getting in close with the default 50mm setting you start to get a fisheye look. Your nose and lips are disproportionately exaggerated. Even the small back-off for the second image makes a huge difference and reduces the fisheye effect.

Experiment looking at both sets of makeup and hair using Ctrl 8, 9, and 0.

...and... pretty avatar.

Thanks, Her nose is larger. I was experimenting on how big I could get it, not the perfect little noses everyone has in SL. (almost everyone) But it is exaggerated for sure at that angle.

I will try that, I welcome all tips.

Now I'm curious. What is the official focal length range of the Firestorm Camera?

DISCLAIMER: Fast and easy calulations!

If the FOV stated as default in my FS viewer (60deg) follows normal camera optics conventions (measured diagonally), it would be comparable to approx 35mm depending on the aspect ratio of your viewer window/screen.

Total zoom range with viewer full screen on my laptop goes from 88 to 5deg FOV which would be approx 22 to 500mm in old school 24x36 film cameras (it's again depending on aspect ratios and stuff like that)

I tend to take portraits/modelshots 4-5-6 clicks of ctrl-0 in from ctrl-9, which corresponds approx with the 85 - 135mm I prefer for those kind of shots in RLΒ  (I love my 85/1.2 and 135/2.0 :D )...

Total zoom range is from 5 to 174.8deg FOV which would be approx 1 to 500mm in old school 24x36 film cameras (it's again depending on aspect ratios and stuff like that)

Thanks!!! I was just curious. I usually adjust to what looks good. Which I don't always even have time to do!!!

I am not going to argue with Taya: she's a professional and, in my experience, knows whereof she speaks. I absolutely do not.

However, Myra Wildmist did a super series in Kultivate on simulating different lens types a number of years ago. This is what she says:

When you take a snapshot in Second Life, you’re essentially using a 50mm lens: The default settings are almost the same as a standard 50mm lens. I say, almost the same, because most 50mm lenses in real life have an angle of view around 48 degrees. The SL default camera angle of view (View angle in Phototools.) is set to 1.047 radians or 60 degrees. They probably do that because 60 degrees is the focused field of view of a typical human eye, so it’s more comfortable to set the angle of view of SL at 60 degrees for normal viewing.

My default setting for most of my pics simulates a medium telephoto lens (70-135mm).

I'll concur with Charalyne: I like your slightly geeky avatar a lot. And this is a GREAT pic!

Of course it's ok! It's a wonderful pic of you! Lunaea is right about the eyes!

Beautiful. For some reason, I associate your pics with this range of tones, Walelu. Sort of warm and exotic.
