Well...I got a tote bag.

There's been a big ol' drama lately about photostudios. Look, you can go out and spend THOUSANDS of $L on the "best" photostudio in world if that's what you want to do. But quite honestly, it's probably not going to make your photos look that great if you don't know what you're doing. If you want the super professional looking photos, you're either going to have to go to a professional, or you're going to have to learn Photoshop/GIMP/Paint Shop Pro or whatever the editing software du jour is. And you're going to have to know proper angles, get the lighting right, etc.

This is where I take my photos for most of my review pictures.

My photo"studio"

I have one "studio" ball thing that I can just sit on and use arrows to flip through. I got it for free or for very very very cheap at some point. It's nice, but I did disable the light. I use the other sphere, which I made all by myself, for almost 80% of my photos. I can color it any color I want! :-O LOL And the 2 prims over on the side I use for photos on occasion for some reason that I can't remember right now. I use my freebie posestands [IM me, I'll totally give you one if you need one] and that's it. I use good Windlight settings, and then do any clean up in Photoshop, and then if I REALLY need to, I use Photoscape to add borders or lighting effects. That's all. :) My photos aren't the super fantastic, but they're clean. Of course, when I need a great photo done, I beg Skyhawke to do one of me. He could throw me in front of any ol' prim and the photo would still come out looking like a million $L. But that's because he's got skillz.

And that's my opinion on the photostudio debate. LOL

Anyway, so, not having much to do today, I decided I'd actually do a bit of exploring. After all, how much can I blog about clothes and chickens before people get bored? :) So I opened up the Showcase thing in search and decided today I would look at the Education & Nonprofit tab and maybe get some learnin' in my brain.

Yeah, not so much.

The first stop on my little tour was the Virtual Stomach Museum, because I've always been interested in medical type stuff.

Stomach Museum

The "museum" was...well, it was dull. There were some pictures, some writing, and that's about it. It was also pretty small. So I'm not QUITE sure how it got to be in the Showcase.

The only thing I saw to do was open the stomach.

Open stomach

Not fun, so I left.

Next up, I decided to check out Dive World. Hey, I like the ocean.

However, Dive World dumps you immediately in the ocean when you teleport in. That's not exactly the most welcoming of entrances. I flew up and around and landed in front of a store with some dive equipment. I was looking around when a very brand new resident came running up.

He's .... really new.

[13:06] Alicia Chenaux: Not to be mean or anything...but you realize you have boobs, right?

Turns out, he knew. But he switched back to a male shape. We talked briefly, but after he asked me "Do you cum here often," I knew it was probably time to get out of there. Dive World...not so much fun.

Hoping for the best, I went out to Virtual Native Lands, which is advertised as "Authentic Native American culture celebrated on three beautiful islands of immersive educational exhibits." It can't get much worse at this point, right?

I teleport in and hey, I get a tote bag for coming! What a tote bag has to do with anything, I have no idea, but hey, it's a tote bag!

Virtual lands

The islands are cute, but seem like they're in need of an update. But there were things to read and sit on and do. I even got to read the story of the strawberries. Strawberries are my favorite fruit, btw. You know. In case you were wondering. LOL

I did get to do some stuff. Like weave a blanket...


Roll some corn...

Cornrolls. LOL

And sit on a boat that went nowhere.

I'm on a boat!

So... Yeah, so, exploring today was a bit of a bust. But, at least I got a tote bag out of it.

LOL! That is why (since I get in-world earlier) I always scout places for Jerremy and I to visit first. I have had a few experiences like yours. I love your sneakers, by the way!
