My First Portrait Since My Marriage

Jem 2016 Formal Portrait

Really, this is the first time I’ve “sat” for something like this since I got married — and it was fun, getting all glammed up and finding somewhere to pose!  Working on this blog, I get to learn all sorts of fun things about how to photograph, and I’m picking up dressing tips that I might be able to use in RL too.  Although I don’t think I’d be showing up at a job interview wearing this outfit, lol.

Taking a Puff

This photo is also great, but not what I’d want for what Harper is calling a “formal sitting.”  (I think she used to study photography at some point.)  But I had the cigarette holder, and I got a chance to try a trick she’s showed me when you want to catch yourself in a certain position.  Old timers probably know this, I guess, but us young ones need those old timers to help mentor us through all the tricks there are to work within Second Life.

Anyway, this cigarette holder (a group gift from Anachron, last I knew) doesn’t stay up in your mouth long enough for you to take a puff and exhale the smoke.  But you can sort of force the issue here.  When you get into position like you want, right-click something and choose Edit.  That will freeze you into position without necessarily stopping other scripts from running.  I waited until I had the holder in my mouth, clicked Edit, then waited again the couple of seconds for a puff of smoke, and clicked the refresh on Snapshot.  And there you have it — I’m sort of taking a “double drag” on my cigarette. (Not healthy, yes, I know.  But it’s safe in Second Life.  Just don’t start up for real!)

Okay, Conan, tag; you’re it!
