I bring a style I feel is my own. My photography is all raw and untouched for the most part just cropped , maybe a border and signed. I do play with a few simple textures as you’ll see here and there.
I am a photoshop/gimp illiterate 🙂 and decided to just work at shooting just a great shot without digital enhancement needed. I take photos of second Life of its beautiful worlds created who need no alteration to me. Sure I use windlight but other then that I would say I’m pretty traditional and my photos are pure through my eyes. I strive to bring out and show SL by shooting my photos as if I was in RL..

Please enjoy the beauty I find in SL.

Hello and thank you for reading about me.

I have been creating art in RL ever since I can remember. Drawing, crafting, painting, anything that would be considered visually creative. Making art is something that I must do rather than just being something to do.

For me, the appeal of Second Life is it’s visual richness. The beautiful sims, the equally beautiful avatars, and the originality in the creations we see. All of it is used as inspiration for my inworld photography. And my preference is avatars. I like the personal nature of what is expressed in putting together one’s avatar as well as adornment in general. For this reason, the items made for avatars (clothes, hats, hair, skins, etc.) are usually my biggest inspirations. With the creation of mesh bodies, avatars are even more smooth and sensual, making photography of avatars truly pleasurable.

I work on SL photos every week. If I am not taking a photo it is only because I am scouting out locations or shopping for fun things to put in a photo. Because I came to SL for its visual pleasure, I prefer to take photos in an SL environment rather than a backdrop. Somehow the photo feels more 3 dimensional that way, but it also honors the environment which I love so much. I do use Photoshop in post processing, sometimes a lot, and sometimes very little. It depends on the photo and the mood I want in the photo.

My most recent source of pride is Visionaire Institute of SL Photography, where myself and Nariko Okawa teach new and aspiring photographers how to take the best photos they can. We focus on using SL tools to the utmost as well as teaching them how to truly ‘see’ the ins and outs of what makes one photo great while another photo makes no impact.

I hope you enjoy what you see. It is a culmination of about 4 years worth of finessing my skills which I hope will continue to grow.. Please consider this your personal invitation to join me on this journey of learning and creating fresh new things.

I'll say it a thousand times
