Photography Odds & Ends in Second Life

I’m going to whisper this post so, please, read it very softly! I’ve been spending most of time trying to cure this computer of narcolepsy – I am so far behind in my work that I’m a basket case. However. I made another change yesterday and, so far, it seems to have made a difference.

Maybe I’ll get my long list of outstanding stuff done! Before I head off to do that I’ll catch you up on a few photography related bits and pieces. Oh and it’s winter on Leroy↑, always a great sim to visit. :)

The newest beta viewer↑ addresses the tiling bug issue and there are great results being reported↑. I’ve only had a brief time to experiment but I did have the same black bar appear over 4000 pixels. Unfortunately, in some windlight settings I’m getting those vertical stripes↑ – I need to play with that and see what I’m doing wrong.

Update: OK this is embarrassing but I did fix the vertical lines. Double check all the graphics settings when you try out the beta. I have no idea why post-production was set to low but ……. *grin*

I’ll be so relieved if this means I don’t have to spend hours removing tiling artifacts anymore. :)

I would love to become a better photographer in all my lives and have been looking for online training. I saw this article↑ which led me to this class↑. I’ve signed up and am really looking forward to it. I suppose it’s only appropriate that the focus for this next session is the human form – my least successful subject matter. :)

There is nothing in the course description that says the virtual is out of bounds – so I’m hoping that, if I keep a low profile, the fact of my Second Life presence will be lost in a sea of 25,000 students. :p

Inworld photography contests are always fun, and an opportunity to win some money. NeoVictoria is hosting a repeat↑ of the one they held last year and it’s a wonderfully atmospheric build to capture. If I can find the time I’ll certainly enter once again. Just remember that, although it’s an adult sim, sex is not an appropriate subject.

I have to head out now and see if I can get a week’s worth of work done in a day. Just send coffee!
