I really love the lighting in this pic!

Thanks. 😁 @Orwar made an attachable light box, and I use that thing often now, especially when I go to places I can't rez at.  It was that with the Phototools - No Light windlight.  It was pretty much a happy accident. lol

The likeness is uncanny. You should do this professionally!  :D

   That'd be the SOL - Professional Photographers' Ambulatory Lighting Apparatus, by [Furlgrimr]. *nods proudly*

Maybe we can’t see the top, it’s piled pretty high! Not sure what “Lutz” refers to, there’s a city Lutz here in Florida.

Lutz City -  a location where a lot of pictures in this thread have been taken at recently.

(Well, that's very odd -- Orwar has never offered to make me an attachable light box. He must have just forgotten . . .

/me glares sullenly)

Yeah, the projector thing is handy! I really liked the way you lit up the grass unevenly: it reminded me of summer nights exploring brush with a flashlight. Happy accident or not, it looks great!

You draw very well for someone with no sleep.

Meanwhile, I went to the Bakaboo in world store.

Is Lutz a cliche, yet?

So long as it keeps providing an inspiration and setting for really great photos, who cares?

Thanks!   I was in a funk, so wanted to find someplace dark.  Taking pictures there actually lifted my mood :)  

The location is called Everwinter and it is at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Elven Mist/242/122/27

Yeah, that works for me sometimes, too! Sorry to hear you were feeling down, though.

I did a pic a little like this (in a not-as-interesting place) a few months ago, and totally messed up the lighting. But you got it exactly right here: it's a beautiful warm glow on your avi.

Thanks! I'll check this place out!

   I love Everwinter. First thing that popped in mind when I saw the pic was 'Ooh, is that Everwinter?' - I've done a few shots there over the years, alas I haven't visited lately. As much as I love such places, they aren't very kind to one's VRAM. Also, it took me a while to realize that one could get rez rights through joining the group - luckily I no longer need rez rights to light up my shots (totally, shamelessly brings up my photo apparatus for the second time in this thread today - I blame @Catrie for bringing it up first!).

A little laggy, is it?

This is great, and really useful. I have not done nearly enough work scouting out places (and two of the places I did have have recently poofed -- one of them is now a maternity clinic).

   Yes, unfortunately an effect of having a lot of high-poly mesh objects along with a butt load of different textures - most coming in 1024 x 1024 'just because' - can make the loading experience and general FPS quite atrocious. Add a bunch of scripts to every other item and you've got yourself a region that'll swat you with the good old rubber band... And not in a fun way.
