Stuff n such and 💩
Let’s begin with Stuff because it’s just more fun and interesting. I loaded a photo to my Flickr the other day where I used only Shadows and the LumaLite HUD. I really love how it turned out and I want to share it with all of you.
The HUD is really easy to use and I can drop poses in even on the fly and set the lights I want in just a few clicks. I can use spotlights as well and lock my eyes into position so they stop wandering around the room. It’s a basic no fuss no muss easy to use photo tool. 🎬 Often the difference between “That’s nice” and “Wow!” is a few easy steps and LumaLite provides that and more!
Giving you basic light positions for Key light and Fill light as well as color control and unlimited positional projector light. Control intensity, radius and falloff as well.

Now, let’s talk about the and such and b.s ….. for those of you who know me then you will know I try really hard to be as drama free as possible. I hate it and I do truly hate it. I really want to just log into SL chat to friends, take some photos and enjoy what small amount of play time and relax from RL as I can. I spend hours running down rabbit holes of Flickr and YouTube. Try it sometime Flickr is really the best escape you can find, there are some amazing Flickr artist out there from SL ! I believe strongly in *SL* branding, staying true to your brand and hard work as well as your brand history. Yes, even in SL you are creating your Avatar/Brand history and it speaks volumes about, to me, about how you conduct yourself offline in business. That said, I recently had to make a sad decision about places I have a history with, some since the almost beginning of their SL Brand/History, Histories I believed strongly in. I have had to delete those histories from as many places as I possibly could because some Avatars/People could not leave well enough alone. 😞 I hated doing it but we can’t always get what we want. I’m not going to name names or mention brands, but I do watch my blog , to see what people are reading/searching for and I will say the repeat links that get the most hits are so old I had forgotten most of them and are certainly not relevant to anything I’ve blogged on this blog for the last 2 years. Certainly what I’ve blogged this past year is more important these days than those old posts ! So for those who read or snoop lol you will soon have to make new searches for my blog, choose new articles to log/land into this blog because most of those old histories are now deleted. More will be deleted soon. 😞 Time for new days for me 🙂 .
Now to move on , have you been over here. It’s MBA’s Mesh body discussion board. There is not a lot on it at the moment but I think this would be such a helpful tool for all of us with questions, tips, helps, ideas in general. A one stop discussion we can all be part of about our favorite meshes and maybe a place where designers will pop into now and then to see what is on the minds of their consumers. I posted over there today about my frustration over the long wait for Belleza to give us bento hands, I mean they are really falling behind the curve and I have held out purchasing other bento hands. At some point, even in SL you have to call enough on spending! I can go without the bento hands of course but when you spend as much as we do on these bento bodies/heads and skins to skin them ad infinitum. Not to mention the cost of some of the HUDs you need to do that and emotions blah blah, really.
