Girls Travel & Windlight Meme

Emily and I went exploring!

I was frustrated about a SL technical issue yesterday while I was trying to furnish another build…GAAAH! So it was a welcome distraction when Emily hit me up and ask if I was game for exploring. Well, I wasn’t progressing with my decorating (grrr SL!) and I couldn’t get into The Arcade yet (ggrrrr everyone else that did!) so I checked out some destinations from the ExploreSL Flickr group and decided on Small Town Green.

It was hard to choose just one, because I wanted to explore every single destination we have on ExploreSL. But we were short on time. >_<

So I hopped on my Sonoma Bicycle ({what next}) and neko Emily hopped on her…broomstick…

Me on a Bike, Em on a...Broomstick

But of course!

Our Small Town Green travel album is perfect for this meme. 😀

Where to go?

WL for this set: Annyka’s Soft Lavender Day

Strawberry Singh’s Windlight Settings Challenge

Meme instructions:

Answer the following questions about windlight settings and share some that you’ve created yourself. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in this meme’s comments.

Do you use windlight while taking pictures? If not, why not? I depend on it; all my pics are inworld pics because I 1) don’t have the time to Photoshop and 2) I…er…don’t really know how to Photoshop…(don’t judge me! I’ll learn eventually…just not now).

When taking a closeup snapshot for a profile picture, which windlight preset do you use most often?  I don’t often do closeup myself. All my headshots are part of a larger picture so it would be weird if I change WL for just that part. But if I have to, I stick to Nam’s Optimal Skin and Prim. Sometimes, Strawberry Singh’s Closeup…which I found out that she herself is not a big fan of now. WHAAA…?!

Which windlight presets do you use for full body portraits? I…I don’t. >_< Same answer as above…even full bodied ones are part of a larger picture or story. so I keep to the same WL.

I love flowers. I picked a bunch of these along the way. 😛

If you do landscape photography, which windlights do you use for that most often? I always check the default setting first, because that’s what the builder wants you to see and I think I should at least take the time to appreciate it. And after roaming around, I usually have a good idea of how I want to portray the destination…so I guess it depends on the ‘mood’ I’m in when exploring and the landscaping of the place I visit. 😀 When we landed in Small Town Green, we saw autumn-like trees…so I knew I had to use Annyka’s.


Do you have any tricks or tips that you could share for using Windlight effectively? I’m on Firestorm viewer and we have this very nifty WL toggle pre-loaded with presets. I just experiment with all the sliders  until I find one that hits the spot. I don’t have tricks or tips…except for “time”. I’ve played around with WL so much that I know what I prefer and how to best use it. A lot of my interior pictures are done on my own land so I know what settings work best and where to best rezz my prefab sets to get the best shadowing for each presets.  So the tip is “take some time and experiment”, I guess?

Have you created any windlights that you would be willing to share with us? I don’t have a clue how to! I just use the premade ones and play with sliders. Does that makes me a lazy snapper? Yes? Well then…uh…khtxbai.

Well there you go, folks, my not so impressive secret on my photo skillz. XD So, while Em and I continue on with our girl chat, how about you visit Small Town Green, and then take part in the meme too?

Laughing at Em’s childhood ambition to be a bunny!

And remember, if you’re in need of a place to explore, we have some amazing destinations in the ExploreSL Group in Flickr.

Come see all the beautiful destination snapshots…and join the group and add yours too! 😀

Happy exploring! ❤
