As promised, here’s the background on my new WhiteOut by Vig WindLight sky preset along with some examples.
It started toward the beginning of March, when Isolde Flamand and I were watching a classical violinist. The pavilion was filled, so we parked ourselves up on a hillside to watch the performance. Because she had a prim skirt on, Isolde didn’t want to sit…her avi looked particularly striking standing on top of the hill, so we started an impromptu photo shoot.
I started playing with WindLight settings as I am wont to do, and my last tweak resulted in the image you see below this . I don’t believe I saved this exact setting, but it clearly was the precursor for the WhiteOut preset. I really like that shot. Note that the only post-snapshot editing done on the photo was to square it off.
Over the next couple days, I kept playing with this concept of a “White Out” in the background with very soft foreground. It resulted in the WhiteOut by Vig setting. Here are a few of my photos from the shoot that I took using my avatar as the model. A couple of the shots were taken at Sabine Stonebender’s Zero Point – a seasoned SL explorer will notice the glowing colors in the background.
I hope you enjoy playing with the WhiteOut by Vig setting! If you happen to install it, IM me in-world and let me know how the photos work out for you.
