Thank you, and thank you Skell. I was really trying to look for something like this. See you all in a few days. ( but if my pictures don't look like the awesome ones you all post, it will be a few months.) 

just keep taking pics often. don't be afraid to chat with others and ask for help.  I'm nowhere near the level of a lot of the others, but I'm always testing new stuff to do.

Not trying to be off-topic, but can anyone tell me how to have more control of my eyes when I take photos? And what is the best setting for photo's? 

   There are various facial animation and pose HUDs, personally I think that the one by Happy Dispatch is great as it allows you to control not just which bones are being manipulated through a selection of modes, but how severe the manipulation is on a scale, as well as a lot of options for eyes. However, one thing to keep in mind with SL (and to some extent, real photography) is that if the subject's eyes are looking sideways it may give the appearance that they're not aligned. In Black Dragon Viewer you can control the eye rotation completely through the poser, which allows you to compensate for this whilst viewing the subject from your selected position.

   Another tip that often comes up is to zoom rather than moving the camera - if you're taking a close-up, the perspective may distort the subject and stretch their dimension. In both Firestorm and Black Dragon (and I think the standard viewer) the zoom is displayed in rads; the default position for FS is 1.046 rads, for a portrait I usually zoom in to .35 rads. To allow a shot to be taken in higher resolution you must save it to disc (as SL will only take textures up to 1024 x 1024 pixels, and halves thereof, i.e. 512, 256, 128, 64, 32, 16 squared), you may then take pictures up to 6144 x 6144 pixels.

   As for graphic settings... However high you want to and can go. Advanced Lighting Model is one option I'd strongly recommend having checked regardless of your other settings, as well as a LOD factor high enough that no mesh within your frame is being distorted, and likewise a view distance long enough that anything in frame that 'should' be there is there. If you're shooting against a backdrop you may not need more than 32 meters (FS minimum), whereas if you want to take sim-wide pictures, you may need to go up to 320 meters or so.

Using Anypose myself for setting up poses, and that has a tab that lets your eyes look in all directions.

Can I ask, if I want pictures like VictoriaGrwd, I need more resolution?   And before I keep asking questions, did anyone post a blog or topic on the forum how to make the best photos? 

Just play around with the settings until you find something which suits your style. We all approach it from different angles so there's no right way. Whatever you do you're welcome here.

Had to make some adjustments too the eyes, nose, mouth and chin. But I'm using the AVI(L) Catwa Bento AMBER 9yo Body Shape which is one of the shapes that comes with the AVI(L) Mesh body, on my GA.EG Mia head

I've also gone back to one of my favorite short hairstyles. The*ARGRACE* IORI.
