  1. I've always liked taking the occasional snapshot in SL when I've seen something I like, and recently my curiosity has escalated; I've moved on to not just take the snaps with more attention to light, quality and resolution, but to try my hand at editing them - and so far I think there's been some good progress. However, taking selfies got pretty old pretty quickly, especially as I know there are people out there who put a whole lot more attention to their avatars' appearance. Since I've already had my friends go through their wardrobes and poses, I'm looking for people who'd like to be photographed, whether just as a fun thing or if you want a profile picture or a picture for your wall or any other application. I will not charge anything from you for having your photo(s) taken, with the exception of the upload fee (L$10/picture). The only condition is that the pictures taken can be put in my portfolio (this does not restrict the maturity rating as I can adjust this to the specific photo(s) in the listing, if you want them mature/adult, go for it.). Please note: - As mentioned, any pictures taken through this offer, will be displayed in my portfolio and I reserve the right to use them for the sake of advertising further business inside of Second Life. - I'm in Europe, SLT+9, so scheduling a shoot at 'business hours' may be difficult. Exact when will have to be discussed in person. - I will only pick one or a few people, who either contact me in-world or through this thread, each day - depending on how much time I have. - My selection of poses is fairly limited thus far, so having your own pose is a plus. I'd also ask that you decide what you want to wear beforehand. Some adjustments on scene may be required, but I'd rather not browse your entire wardrobe (unless, like me, it's limited to a handful of outfits). You decide what you want to wear, not me! - I do not demand that you have all the latest, most expensive, top fashion clothes or avatar accessories - but please, no 'Standard'(system) avatars or 'Starter' avatars.

  2. Playing around with 3-point lighting and projector lights. Raw photo, no editing done to it.
  3. Hello there, Kelsey! I'm SLT+9 myself, but our little friendship circle is pretty diverse and spread out across the time zones. Most are shopaholics, and we all enjoy exploration, games and goofing off, so you might just fit right in! Feel free to give me a nudge in-world if you'd like to.
  4. Non-selfie! Aleccia as a clockwork ballerina.
  5. I'd watch that movie. Would you watch that movie? I'd watch that movie. To the left we have the lovely Carolina, and to the right we have the enchanting Aleccia.
  6. And because of the file size upload limit per post, here's the second picture, in a second post. Sowwie! Model: Carolina Schön
  7. Since no one has complained yet I'm going to drop another non-selfie. Or two. Modeling for me today (well, last night) is Carolina Schön.
  8. Another non-selfie. What can I say, she's more interesting to look at than I am. Aleccia is a most patient and lovely model.
  9. ... Well, I'm still unsure of where to complain.
  10. ... Now that you mention it, I think I was. I'm not sure who to complain to about not being fed!
  11. Did the hair come with a resize script? If so you might have to make it slightly larger to fit your head - or make your head smaller to fit the hair (which you can do without the script).
  12. You know how you spot something somewhere, but decide not to get it, but then you think you should go get it anyway - but it's gone, so you try to find something similar elsewhere, and you find something 'sort of the same' but not close enough, but next to that you find something entirely different and somehow end up having it in your inventory - and before you know it you've put it into an outfit which gives you an idea for a scenario for a picture? *catches breath* Well, here's how that went.
  13. My daughter says that I look angry. I have no idea what she's talking about?
  14. I shall try my best to restrain myself. *whistles innocently and pops his hands in his pockets*
  15. Not a selfie. Just advertising how wonderful my friend looks today! Featuring Aleccia Lin.
  16. I agree with what Skell said, and I've seen 'dislike'/'disagree'/'downvote' buttons on social platforms which were abused to the point of it becoming a form of bullying. The 'like' button I think is handy, because if you're on a thread with a lot of pictures being uploaded daily, each participant in that thread replying to each picture to say 'that's a nice picture, I like it' would just cripple the thread. The 'thanks' button feels a bit 'meh'. If someone actually helps you, or credits you for something, a written 'thank you' would be a lot more polite - but I'm guilty of having used it on occasion, since it's there and it's convenient and well, again, it does keep the thread tidy in a way. Then again, there's the whole psychological thing about like buttons and social convention in modern media... Receiving a lot of positive feedback, through 'likes', causes us to release endorphin. Likewise, expected high-like posts and pictures that don't receive all that anticipated attention, well they damage our self confidence and could potentially lead to self-loathing and depression in the long term. It's basically an electronic drug driven by our own ego. I'm pretty sure disagree/dislike/downvotes would have the same impact. So no, it's not just an issue of trolls downvoting good answers to important questions, being a bit of a nuisance, it's potentially harmful to people who do not perceive any distance between themselves and their ethereal presence - of which there are plenty in the SL community. Thus, I disagree.
  17. So. This is what we're up to at the moment... No, we don't know what we're looking at.
  18. Hello there, Whilst I wouldn't go out and make a sibling out of a stranger off the bat, I'm in SLT+9 and we're considering expanding out family. Feel free to prod me in-world if you'd like to chat and see where things go; I'm always happy to make new friends.
  19. Winter and snow I can manage fine. Perks of being Norse I guess. Come summer I'm dead, the warmth is cruel. I don't ever seem to get used to it!
  20. Half an hour before bedtime... What to do... Group shot! Featuring Allurey and Alessa. I tried to look less intimidating by smiling, not sure if it worked.
  21. How, when pink is a paint I abhor, Are you pictures a thing I adore, I but think that it's weird, I'm just scratching my beard, Always eager, and waiting for more. ... In my defense, it's past midnight. I'll go to bed now. Toodles!
  22. Are you telling me that you don't change clothes every hour? =o
  23. So tired of taking selfies by myself, so I had a friend pose with me! Slight colour enhancement editing in Gimp, nothing complex. To the left stands the alluring Allurey!
