PSA Special: An SL Photographer’s Care Package

(Scroll down to bottom for Pic Credits)

Hellos All, and Happy Holidays… recently a friend asked a few questions about SL photography because he is thinking about dipping his fingers into the hobby. I’m totally about being supportive so I sent him a rather long winded  care package that I know full well will get lost… so figured Yays PSA time!

I’m sure many of you remember or are going through it now with the overwhelming info sea of Tutorials, Toys, and Opinions that float around on the web for SL Photography…Today I’m going to give you a compact list of all my favs that have helped me grow as an Artist over the years in a sort of “Care Package”. There are of course other wonderful videos and websites but there isn’t ever enough time to go through them all.

 

  • The SL End of Things: Best Tutorials I ever found on things like short keys, lighting, and camera angle guides for all those hidden gems in SL are from Anya Ohmai watch at least part 1 & 2.

 

  • Photoshop Basics & Advance: There are so many tutorials for PS and I’ve shifted through many of them. The best free videos I found that are short, easy to understand, and a down right fun way to learn PS are done by Phlearn. They have everything from the Basics to more Advanced tricks of the trade.

 

  • A Must Have Toy: PS has all sorts of Toys and Addons but the most helpful that I can no longer live without is the Nik Collection… it makes all that editing and photoshop polishing so much easier and quicker… magic with a push of a single button.

 

 

May those links & vids help you on your Artistic journey \o/.
