   Personally I don't see the point of spending that kind of money on something as script-heavy when you can achieve the same results with simple prims. Better results even, as you're in direct control of every aspect of the light without having to go through a HUD. 

I got it because it cuts the time it takes for me to get a shot ready, way down. I can either just drop a background down and get ready or i can  take it out anywhere  get a few shots and be on my way..

I doubt someone that takes pictures seriously, all the time will want it..But for someone getting started or doesn't really want to invest  that much of their time in that area of sl to learn all the tricks of the trade.. It's a pretty good tool I think..

Yes, I think it is a bit pricey, enough to turn someone away that isn't that interested.. I've set up my own shots without it before and with it.. I wouldn't say I could get even better shots with or without it..

I got it mainly because it just made things easier and quicker for me and really not losing too much if anything in my pictures that i am looking for..

It has a lot of things inside it that I don't have to load up or mess with anywhere else but in that one spot on my screen.. I can  put my lighting where i want it, scroll through my masks and animations and a bunch more..

I don't take my shots into photoshop or any editing software..I just like to see what i can do inside the viewer..

I don't have all the time I used to have when I was younger for all that editing and stuff.. hehehe

I've gotten some pretty decent shots with it.. Probably not professional shots, but I'm not one of those hehehe

 

i just figured i would suggest it is all to put another option out there..;):)

Look who I found on my (RL) walk to the beach this morning...

Contemplating spring

Getting a really lucky shot.  I was taking pictures of something else and playing with the windlights, then cammed out and around a bit to check angles and just happened to catch this in my view.

   It's practically the exact same UI to operate a prim light, except sliders in the HUD rather than a numbers window with arrows in a prim's edit window.

   It's as easy as pressing Ctrl + B and clicking on the ground, just go to the features tab in the editing menu and you have the light settings right there.

   A colour picker next to the 'light switch', below it you have the intensity, radius and falloff. To make it a projector, simply click the texture picker next to the colour picker (which lets you change it to any colour you want and add a texture (usually a white circle on a black background, but you can just as well click 'blank' if you don't intend on having the light's edges in the shot - or get creative and project a picture!), and beneath it you have the controls for that (field of view, focus, ambiance). 

   And if you're concerned about rez rights, simply create the light in a sandbox or in your home, rename the prim to something appropriate, pick it up and attach it to your avatar and move it into position - zero scripts, zero cost, easy as apfelstrudel, and you can wear as many of them as you like (up to your attachment limit, of course).

   Surely, that minute amount of effort is worth saving $30?

That's just the lighting..

I can put 1,000 poses in it and categorize them

I can have up to like, 10 people in a shot that I'm controlling the lighting and poses on each one. Not that I'm gonna be doing that hehehe

I can change the shadow masks,which I think they call them gobo's, over my projectors by scrolling though those..

I can do presets and save those to scroll through next time..

All on the fly.

To not have to mess with a zillion other things, and have less huds and things on my screen and be able to not have to plan ahead of time or go back to a sim because i had this idea for a shot.. For me, it was worth it..

I've messed with the lighting before and set up my own shots before I got this..

i know how to make projectors and cast shadows and all that other good stuff..

I liked doing all that..I just don't have to anymore, let alone have the time, plus I'm pretty rusty anyways.. hehehehe

Myself, i'm not out hunting good shots all the time or even thinking about taking pictures a lot of the time.. But when it hits me that this would make a really nice shot.. I can be like Mike and just do it.. hehehehe

I'm just saying, for me it was worth the money.. It being pricey will more than likely have people asking themselves if it is worth it for them or not..

He was very positive! B| He said "Watchful, vibrant and profound, the work of manoji Yachvili exudes empathy in her momentous first Seaclaid show."

But then he got very drunk so I had to call him an Uber!

Spent the afternoon out exploring the Campbell Coast area on Corsica.  Very pretty.  I was very impressed with how well the forest areas were put together.  It was also nice to see an extensive build like this on mainland.

You don't happen to have a SLURL handy, do you?

That particular picture was taken close to http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Laserlight/3/66/66

The Campbell Coast extends over sections of several regions, on both sides of the Linden Road in some sections.  I trekked around through 3 or 4 regions out there, and I'm thinking there is still perhaps more to find and explore.  There are rental home sprinkled around, but they've done a nice job in leaving good sized scenic landscaping areas and it's easy to explore around without intruding in anyone's yards.  

Two other scenic sections I liked out there:

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sunstream/223/96/66

and http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Emyniad/225/198/45 -- if you take the dirt path towards the giant chess set in the little meadow and across the foot bridge and through the ruins there are some waterfalls and you should be able to make your way down to the coastline where there is a tiny settlement of a few buildings and a pier (and a sea monster keeping an eye on things).

I have to leave some things for you to find :)  

 

Apparently there's a hidden castle out there someplace that I'm going to need to go back and find.
