I played with light projectors this morning in Second Life. And I wanted to share little tips for second life photographers and photo enthousiasts. Since my past SL lights tutorial, a lot has changed. Material introduction enhanced avatars’ appearance a lot. Light reflects over prim surfaces and mesh avatars’ skin, even on mesh clothes and hair, so here is a new little demo…

One thing we, Second Life Bloggers, need from time to time is a nice challenge. A topic or theme to get our inspiration going and perhaps even do something that is out of our comfort zone.
For those of you in need of inspiration, and also for anyone wanting to try out something they usually do not think of: why not do a post inspired by the Fantasy Faire 2017 – in their blogger challenge?
I know, we do not usually promote events in blogposts on our site, but The Fantasy Faire is an annual event, 15 sims with shops and each sim has his own theme; perfect for pictures and blogging inspiration.
Also, The Fantasy Faire is a Relay for Life event, the biggest in SL, and the reason why we as SL Blogger Support love to give it attention (not to mention they graciously gave our group early access before opening last thursday).
You can find the challenges here, a fun reason to get off your platform and do something wild and out of the ordinary!
Oh and why not try a vlog or video?
Something we have always wanted, but never gotten to do: create an inworld presence for our group. A real [SL] Blogger Support Head Quarters, a place where our members can meet up, hang out, spend time together and share tips and tricks or just chill. A place where we can organise blogger-related events, or just socialise.
Well, thanks to John Brianna (johannes1977.resident) and Eleseren Brianna from Kultivate Magazine and Windlight Art Gallery, we have our very own, inworld SLBS Head Quarters!
John has generously offered us a parcel on his sim, for us to have our HQ, for which we are very grateful!
Here is the SLURL: SLBS Head Quarters in Second Life
The HQ is open to all, and since this is all new and I have not been inworld for some days due to Real Life, it is a bit empty and seems under-decorated. We are still working on it, it is brand new!
Though, we will probably not decorate it that much, as we want to give our members the option to rezz, for unpacking or such.
With land, and allowing members to rezz (wear your tag), comes rules. Not complicated ones, but still I would like to point out the following:
- The sim is rated Moderate, please refrain from Adult activities
- We have neighbours, be nice and respectful
- When you have rezzed objects, pick them up when you are done! We will do cleaning up rounds for leftover objects, but if we find someone leaving stuff frequently, this will end up with a warning, and for repeat offenders: consequences
- No rezzing of objects larger than our parcel – so no homes, skyboxes etc. Common sense please, it is an office – not a sandbox!
Want to organise something?
We are going to plan some social and blogger events soon, any ideas are always welcome!
If you want to organise something – like a class on organising your inventory, or how you create certain things on your blog etc, feel free to contact any of the Support Team Members so we can arrange this for you.
Don’t be shy!
See you soon @ the SLBS HQ!
