Take a picture…

I love taking raw shots in Second Life when the windlight and the sim actually works together. It’s amazing what our own little virtual world can accomplish in such a color spectrum. What I have found about taking raw shots is that you have to have the right type of sim – meaning quality items, prims and a decent set up – plus the right type of windlight to enhance the mood. Some sims have a surround around them, encasing them in a bubble that might hinder the lighting. These sims you do have to take some time with, but I highly recommend going to sims where there is NOT a surround. Open air is needed so you can get the world light.

If you’re looking for an assortment of sims, different windlights and how to work your windlights using tutorials, please check out the [SL] Blogger Support blog for more details. Also, on Flickr there is a ton of groups you can add your raw shots to. Here are two: Raw Shots in Second Life and Unedited: A blogger/photographer challenge
