HOPE: 2016 Relay 4 Life Photography Exhibition opens tomorrow

Previously posted by Caitlin Tobias at Cait’s World.

Tomorrow, saturday 9 april at 11AM (SLT) the A Stand for Hope Photography Exhibition will be opened for the public.
The past months 21 SL Photographers have worked to make portaits/pictures or 21 caregivers/survivors, and I am honoured and proud to be one of the photographers.

The images and artworks will be revealed tomorrow, so the caregivers/survivors will get to see their portraits for the first time! I have had a chance to see all pics already, as I was asked to come see if my work was displayed as I wanted (and they were!) and I was in awe to see the amazing photos of my fellow photographers!

The Exhibition will open at 11AM, till that time the venue is closed, click here for the LM.

The official invitation:

2016 Relay 4 Life Photography Exhibition Invites You to Join Us!  

Beginning at 11:00 A.M. on April 9, 2016, we invite you to join us at the Grand Unveiling of the 2016 Relay 4 Life Photography Exhibition. Twenty-one of Second Life’s best photographers have come together to support this vision for a world without cancer. They join with Survivors and Caregivers who will share stories of their journeys.

Join us on April 9-10th as we celebrate together, remembering those lost, fighting along those still battling, and honoring those who have won their fight and heard the words “Your cancer is gone.”

Each photographer will be offering a silent auction item to be auctioned off during the exhibition, from April 9th – April 16th, 2016. There will be amazing offers of photography sessions to bid on, gorgeous limited edition artwork you will only find at the exhibit and can take home home with you as a wonderful memento.

There will also be a very special GUARANTEED admittance to Visionaire’s Fall 2016 course.

Taking part in this incredible experience are…

The Great Thing About Photography…

Previously posted by portiapexington at Mask and Mien.

I’ve been thinking about this quite a lot lately, about how my love of stories and writing ties in so directly with how much I’ve been enjoying photography lately. Sure, part of it is the fact that I’m really starting to understand how to use some of the tools of the trade to get the most out of my in-world shots and, yes, I’m getting better and better in PS every time I work on one of these wild and ambitious pictures.

It’s more than that, though. For me, photography is about sharing what -I- see because, like styling, no one is going to approach a picture in quite the same manner. No one is going to find the same combinations of lighting and angles or even use a pose in the same fashion. It’s incredible to see how far creativity takes us!

Come with Me.png

I’ve been thinking about photography a lot this week because I’m going to be teaching my very first class this Sunday and, go figure, it’s a photography workshop! I know I’m not any kind of expert (there’s always at least one thing wrong in every shot I do) but one thing I do hope to instill in my class is that imagination is worth just as much as expertise. That the only sure way to fail in anything is to phone it in or, worse, give up without trying at all.

The worst thing that can happen, really, is that ONE picture is going to suck, right? So why not get out there and fiddle around with poses and angles? Why NOT take the extra time to try an extra windlight or three after you’ve taken the basic shot, just to see how it looks? And if we don’t like where we ended up, well, we chalk it up as experience and start all over again!

Why settle for anything when we have this perfect playground in Second Life? Get out there and do something new, wacky, and/or fun!❤

After posting about Black Desert’s free character creator, longtime avatar photographer Connie Arida whipped this above pic up in about 30 minutes. Pretty impressive in such short a time, though IMO Black Desert’s hair modeling is not ideal. And while…
