Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

We recently received an invitation to visit NOLA @ Fairhaven. Described as  “an homage to New Orleans, Louisiana”, the estate comprises three regions – two Full and one Homestead, with one of the Full regions providing the homage to New Orleans, and the other a pair of settings I’ll discuss a little later.

Designed by Tatianna (TatiannaDiamond) and Jus Strat (jus4strat), all three regions are an impression combination – but given the amount packed into all three mesh, sculpt and texture-wise, can also be a little heavy going if your viewer is running with any significant bells and whistles (such as shadows) enabled.

There is no enforced landing point within the regions, and the SLurl supplied by Jus dropped us neatly in the north-east corner of the Full region representing New Orleans…

  1. “significant bells and whistles (such as shadows)”
    In 2019 shadows are hardly bells and whistles anymore, are they? Or are you ladies operating on Walmart bargain bin 300$ craptops?

    • Well, some of us have to. My previous desktop, though it was good before, was limping by the time I replaced it, though I was still able to do good work with it despite the decline. And, even with the gamer’s screamer I run now, there’s many places I turn off shadows to improve performance, at least when I’m moving around.

      • Yes, of course, we all do that. But when it’s time to look at things and make photos I switch back to full eyecandy with lotsa atmosphere. Sometimes I even double the resolution of my snapshots, although my screen won’t really show it. It still looks betterer. ;) In blog tho I keep resolution down to 1080.

        • As do I — though I use the full resolution for the blog, as well. (I just save it as an HQ JPEG instead, and reserve PNG for Flickr.)

          I think we may both be saying the same thing and seeing the same situation; just perceiving it differently?

  2. Fresh places to photograph!
