Stalking Pays. I was, innocently, checking someones profile where a group they were a member of grabbed my attention so I joined and TPed and OMG I’m in FREAKING HEAVEN!
BE STILL MY BEATING HEART!
So many top quality props, backdrops, room and even skyboxes all FREE for us to use.
You can see the purple TP in front of me and using that it will take you to a total of 9(?) platforms and I think there is a LM for a cave system but I’ve only checked out 2 platforms so far and I cannot wait till I log back in as from just the 2 platforms I can see she has used some of the best backdrops in SL.
Not only do you get some of the top backdrops in SL you even get rezzing rights! Obviously, you do have to join the group but that’s free.
But don’t worry if you don’t have many poses as a lot of the backdrops such as this one come with poses.
I literally took dozens of pictures even just of the 2 platforms I’ve check out, in the end, it was just so hard which backdrops to show you so I’ve kept it to just these 4 pictures but there is everything from a Romeo & Juliet balcony, abstract arty farty backdrops and again I cannot wait to see what else there is but I know I won’t be disappointed.
I was going to be selfish and keep this all to myself but then I decided not to be such a meanie as I know that some of you will really love to have access to a place where you can take some pictures you will be proud of even if you’re a point and snap sort of photographer.
REMEMBER, to keep you snapping and the costs down if you save your pictures to “disk” it means it’s saved to your computer and it’s FREE. So you can snap away inworld check them out on your computer, just save them to a folder, and pick the ones you like best and it’s only then if you want to upload them inworld that you have to pay the 10Lds.
So who is the damned generous person who has gone to a great expense? Her name is Anne Maertens (annealyce.maertens) and I know that name and I know her shop which is called Dulce Secrets. The reason I know her shop is that when I was first dipping my system toes into blogging she had the same sort of set up but since I gradually started to buy my own backdrops or use my sim/home I stopped going. So to find that not only is her free studio is still up and running but it’s grown so much bigger and of course now there is a lot of creators making the backdrops was just a total Woo Hoo.
Naturally, I will be checking out her inworld shop and I’ve put the LM for you as well.
PS I even like the tag over your head which says “photographer at work” and I think I might use that when taking pictures even not using this one and I think in future as a small thanks, when I use one of her backdrops I will add the LM for people to check it out.
UPDATE. I found not just the caves but also FREE SKIN and although you get the one shade, very pale, you do get it for all the main mesh bods and face/body included. I’m not doing a close up because I won’t be keeping it as I am positively glued into my PumeC Agatha skin but it’s hard to find a free skin which comes with head and body.
I will be keeping the subscriber gift though as it’s a lovely young blush and suits both this free skin and my preferred PumeC skin.
