Photography Course in Second Life

Hmm – lots of fun :-) I had the good fortune to attend the second session of a photography course offered by avatar Corwin Carllion, real life Nick Noakes. Nick showed lots of very interesting photographs taken in-world by Torley Linden http://www.flickr.com/photos/torley/ and discussed how some of the images were created.

I spent a little time after and downloaded all of Torley Linden’s Windlight sets, unfortunately the instructions did not work, it has changed, but the amazing range of effects available once they are installed has inspired my first set of artistic photographs.

Nick also mentioned a website that gives a list of “cool” places for photography and machinima! http://www.koinup.com/sims/in-second-life/coolest/. Needless to say I am having a wonderful time experimenting when I have spare time, see the results: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24572238@N02/

My favourite image is the top palm tree - it is the best one I have taken :-) Still lots to learn – but I am enjoying playing. Roll on the next session!
