After The Show…

 

To me, punk rock is the freedom to create, freedom to be successful, freedom to not be successful, freedom to be who you are. It’s freedom. – Patti Smith

Flaming Pear: Flood Photoshop Plugin Part 2 & More Highlights of The Week

Alright since I’ve discovered the Flood Plug-In from Flaming Pear due to the every wonderful Strawberry Singh; I’ve been having quite a bit of fun with it.  Perhaps a bit too much fun but my mind is thinking of all these different ways that it can be used while I debate getting the full version once this trial runs out. It’s almost day 3 of my 14 day trial and I can honestly say that I have fallen in love. This is the very first plug-in I have tried and now I want.. no I crave so much more. If someone can point a novice such as myself in the right direction of some wonderful plug-ins; I would be ever so grateful.

The first picture I’m going to post is a bit NSFW but it is a pose called; Pressure that I found at Double Take this evening while on my FLF (Fifty Linden Fridays) run through. It was too good of a deal to pass up!  I grabbed it and my husband and flew a bit below our skybox above the land beginning to play around with windlights while changing. (Also if anyone can point me in the direction of a few more windlights I would be ever so grateful as well! I’ll bake you cookies!!!) I have to admit that the husband is becoming more used to this me taking off when inspiration begins to take over me. Hope you like the picture and the few others that I have created over the last 72 hours or so.

 

**Wanted To Note: The first two pictures were taken just in the air above my land while the last one was taken at a place that I stumbled upon due to Luna Jubilee due to her being the cover model for Fusion Magazine this month after the article about her there was one about a very nice sim that I hadn’t heard of before and I was quite impressed. If you have a chance stop by *Frisland*, You can join a group that allows you to rez so that you may take photographs but in order to do so you need to contact one of the owners of the sim. I will be doing such in a bit, it was one of the many things on my to do list but as always I get a bit sidetracked during the best of times.

A Reason to Breath...

Friday Find: KaTink: Rezz-O-Matic

KaTink Rezz-O-Matic

This Morning I had decided to look around on marketplace for a Photo Studio. Now don’t get me wrong, I love exploring and finding places to take pictures but there are those rare time where you need a picture quickly and don;t have the time to go around exploring or when a friend asks for a picture with a simple background. So I began to explore and came across a store that I visited In-World called: KaTink. Here is their website as well: KaTink. Now I was like a kid in a candy store; poses, backgrounds, props. I thought to myself this is one of those places that might not be known to the world at large. By joining their group for 100L, you are offered quite a few things which were listed on a huge board in their store that I am going to list for you all.

 

Monthly Group Gift – Valued at anywhere from 350L to 500L

Random Group Pressies From the KaTink Staff – Just because we love you.

Loyalty Program – Spend 2000L total between our In-World store and our Marketplace store and start saving 10% on all future purchases!

Random Contests in Group Chat – Win KaTrink Products!

50% off all New Products – For the first 48 hours after they are released

 

Do you want to know what really hooked me in, it was the Loyalty Program for the fact that you earn rewards from shopping both In-World and on Marketplace as well. I am one of those people who can be In-world shopping and on Marketplace as well. It was a draw and I wished that some other stores offered it as well, for they would get quite a few new members due to that fact but I digress.

So after joining the group I began to look around the store, already knowing that I would be buying something and then coming back for more later, given that I am a Poseacholic. I found the Photo Studio they offered but found myself drawn to something else completely; an item which you could organize your poses along with the ad work so you wouldn’t always have to try to remember a name of a certain pose and take quite some time to find it within your inventory. Drum-roll….. KaTink – Rezz-O-Matic Now the price threw me off for a moment or two; 750L but when I took a moment to stop and think about it, for what it says it can do was worth it to me.

When I unpacked it I was in for a bit of a surprise as there are 3 different versions included; Floor Model, Wall Model & Hud Model. The Hud Model is perfect for those times when you want to go pose shopping but can’t remember if you already have a certain pose or one that is already very similar to what you have. The Floor Model was a bit big for my taste so I began working with the Wall Model.

There are many notecards explaining what to do but it’s not as hard as it might appear at first. I will say this right now; Only work with poses that are copyable if you do not when the pose is rezzed you will have to re add it back once you are finished using it!!!! Also make sure there is ad work to go along with the poses, As that is how you will know which pose is which!!

Go into your inventory and find a pose that you would like to add. Click edit on the rezzer, go to the content tab in edit mode. Open up the notecard and read over the instructions again if you need to you’ll see lines at the bottom, start there and don’t delete anything in the notecard. In your inventory right-click on the pose and select properties then copy the name and paste it in the notecard with a comma, then do the same for the ad work and paste that name behind the comma and hit enter to begin a new line for the next pose & ad that you have. Next drag over the pose and ad work into the contents folder and drop it. It’s as simple as that.

I made a tutorial video for this but I got a bit shy/nervous during it and then trying to edit it was a pain (It’s bad I apologize!!!!!) so here it is but I’m going to hold off on making anymore videos for the time being until I find a program that works out a bit better for me.

 

I leave you with another video but another song I found thanks to my friend Tricky!!! ♥

Special Meme: Strawberry Singh

This morning I realized that I hadn’t posted anything in the last few days, partly due to RL issues and secondly due to a bit of a SL burnout that I began having earlier this week. But then I read the normal blogs that I follow and was gifted with a little bit of a surprise! Today is Strawberry Singh’s 7’th Rez Day. Her post was quite moving along with the photos she shared today but the real treat was the end. Someone had asked for a photo of her so they could edit it.

UPDATE: Shadow asked me if he could have a picture to pile up for my rezday. So here it is, thought I’d share it with everyone in case you want to put mangoes on me and/or make me into a meme. Click over for a link to the original large image:

 

So there was my goal for the day! Could I edit a photo that would do her justice? Could I handle the inner pressure that I was giving myself to create something simple yet different from what I have tried… What if I messed up the photo of the Mother of Bloggers; Queen of Photography Herself!

I admit it I over thought quite a bit while playing around in Photoshop for the last 4 hours or so, adding things, redoing things, taking away, adding again… the endless cycle of over thinking… So finally I scrapped half of what I had done, taking it in a new direction than where I had been going with it….

 

Rez Day Meme: Strawberry Signh

 

Hopefully it does the woman who means quite a bit to all of us bloggers and photographers within SL a bit of justice; as without her I know that I would not be who I am now as a blogger and photographer for she has impacted me more than she will ever know and I haven’t once met this woman…. (That would be a life line dream.. omg!)

 

Happy Rez Day to you once more, Mother of Bloggers; Queen of Photography! (it’s my title for her and I am sticking with it..yes I watch too much Game of Thrones alright…!)
