Shadow Play

Yes, yes, I’m totally late to the shadow party, and to viewer 2. I’ve staunchly refused to even look at viewer 2 after being completely petrified when trying a very early version of it. You know the one, it put you in clothes you had deleted months ago, fucked up your inv beyond all recognition and left you ghosted for hours. But, having been tantalised by both Newdoll‘s and Sasy‘s photo streams, I knew it was time to bite the bullet. I dont do well with change at all, I emoed and whined till 1am my time, while Mel and Sasy held my hand through various crashes, viewer changes and driver updates. I’m quite sure Mel only came into our skype chat cos Sasy was sekretly begging him to rescue her from the crazy that was me :P We discovered that Kirstens totally doesnt work for my setup, but viewer 2 did, and beautifully too. It’s gonna take me quite some fiddling until I find settings I’m in love with, but for now, Berry’s windlight setting for shadows and the LL default sky have given me the best results.

I’m wearing the latest release from Kouse’s Sanctum, a store I’ve loved for years, and blogged to pieces when I wrote for Freestyle. The Suzie dress is a gorgeous, retro print summer dress that can be worn 2 ways. I’m showing the shorter skirt version.

Wedges are the shoe for the warmer months, and they come in every style you can dream of. One of my favorites from the Shoe Expo was Kookie‘s take on this popular shoe. I like that theyre very easy to match to my skin and they arent full bright. Normally I dont care about full bright or not, but since I’ve been trying to do shadow shots, I’ve found that shadows do not like full bright at all, which rules out another pair of shoes (for this post) I wanted to show as well.

Weeee, shadows on my face, of the goodly kind!!! Which settings do you love when shooting shadows? And has using shadows made your blogging harder or easier?
