Vanity, Vanity all is Vanity so I’m just going to show you a few pictures I took today of the 2 new sims created by Lauren Bentham.
The Arranmore sim is dark and foreboding.
OMG, you can see even the light glistening on the ruts in the mud! The attention to details is amazing.
I’ve got that building but when I had mine rezzed out it was nowhere near as stunning, I think the lighting cracking overhead helped.
I took these 3, and so many more on the Arranmore sim but these next one are taken on the Netherwood sim which resembles the wilds of an English countryside.By this stage, I was feeling queasy from the jealous bile that was building up inside my chest and by the time I took my last picture I was a sniveling wreck.
OK, I’ve pulled up my big girl knickers now and stopped sniveling.
The thing is these sims are so photogenic that if you’ve never tried to take pictures in SL or you have but the results have never been to the standard you would like then try here. The landscaping, building, and windlight have created beautifully photogenic scenes that will allow anyone to be able to take pictures to be proud of. I promise you although I’ve framed my pictures I’ve done no photo editing I just cammed and snapped and each and every picture was a keeper.
Here is a BIG tip and I have told you about it before but it’s a way of taking 1, 2, 5 or even 100+ pictures and not have them cost you a single Linden. When you take a picture in the pop-up snapshot window select “save to disc” and then another window opens on your computer and you save it into whatever folder you want to keep your SL pictures in. This is FREE and it means you can take as many as you wish and then chose the best and if you want them inworld then you do have to pay the 10Lds to upload them into SL.
Can you imagine framing and hanging your own photos on your wall in SL or have them as a background on your computer etc?
I have paid to join all 3 sim groups, the Baja sims, Arranmore and the Netherwood one and there is another dystopian sim which I’m going to assume will also be a paid for group but this token one-off payment gives you rezzing rights but of course keep it small, simple and clean up afterward. Considering how much time, effort and expense that these sims cost Lauren Bentham the group fee’s are more of a token of gratitude than anything else.
PS. At each LM there is a board with all of the sims and so you can TP from there and check out each one.
