Filters, Fashion, and Fall


The above picture was taken using the FilterCam HUD and a bit of post production work in Photoshop.  
Below you can see the raw picture, no Photoshop work aside from cropping.
All pictures in full size at my Flickr 


Thanks to the wonderful Codebastard Redgrave, loving "Codie", and her FilterCam2 HUD 
for purchase and use inside Second Life (or on the Marketplace), everyone has the ability 
to take amazing pictures even if you don't have or aren't very skilled (yet) in Photoshop. 

FilterCam2 is a HUD loaded with various textures.  
You attach it to the center HUD position on your screen and take pictures.      
Its just that easy.  
There are shaded effects, frames, keyholes, splatter effects, scope effects, 
and many more, close to 150.  
The HUD allows layering of effects up to 4 layers, so your creativity is endless.  FilterCam main version updates are included with the price of purchase, meaning free upgrades forever.  Expansion packs are purchased separately and are very reasonably priced.

Below, I have included several other pictures from today, 
both pre and post Photoshop production.  
Shopping list included below pictures.  Happy picture taking everyone!

Sunshine on my Shoulders



Autumn, originally uploaded by ~sierra sugar~.
(Pose brought to you by !Bang)

Fall is such a beautiful time of year to me. It means change. The golds, the reds, and sometimes purples are so colorful and vivid. They invoke that feeling of hope. Its a time of reflection and to find some inner peace. Days grow shorter as the air become crisp and cool. And through it all the sunshine filters through inviting us to bask in its glow.

"Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy.
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry.
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely.
Sunshine almost always makes me high.
"

[SPRY] Pied-a-Terre



A while ago Stacie Pryor sent me one of her build's, the Pied-a-Terre home.  I fell immediately in love with this cozy, warm, tuscan-style little villa and delighted in decorating it.  The home features a patio, livingroom, kitchen, a solarium/sunroom/hallway that divides two rooms (you decide the use.  Mine were bedroom and bathroom).  The home is roomy enough to furnish and not be crowded, but still small and cozy.  Thank you, Stacie for your amazing build and your generosity.

Below you will find pictures as well as descriptions of items used to furnish the home, including decor from Dutchie, {What Next}, LISP, and The Loft.  Stacie Pryor's home can be found on the Marketplace under her store name [SPRY].
