Edelweiss plus Zoom Tutorial

Since Gidge brought up The Sound of Music, my mind went straight to Edelweiss when I looked at the pictures from last night’s shoot.

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Bless my homeland forever

I shot these photos at the blanc part of the noir et blanc installations at World’s End. It’s such a beautiful sim and very uncluttered so it struck me as a good spot to make a short video tutorial on using the Zoom keys to change your cameral “lens” in Second Life. Most of the time we zoom by pressing down the option or alt key and ten using arrows, view or the mouse to move our camera about and to zoom in. That’s great, but it makes for very distorted close-ups. This little video will show you how the zoom controls work and contrast proper and improper methods of zoom.

This beautiful dress if from Tres Jolie, The texture on the bodice is beautiful and like all of Tres Jolie’s clothing the details such as aligning seams are excellent. You even see the faint shadow that falls between the fabric and your skin, a painstaking kind of detail often forgotten. It’s also a very sexy little gown with its sheer skirt fluttering around your legs.
I wore the Hydra set from Rozoregalia because I will drag that gorgeous jewelry out any chance I get and I love how it looks with this dress. Sometimes when I wear men’s hair, like this short cut from Lelutka, I feel a little guilty. After all, there are so many options for women and so few (relatively) for me that it feels like I should let them keep what little they have to themselves. But then, I see how hot this hair looks and I think whatthehell and put it on anyway.
The skin is PXL Creations Kasumi with the metal eyeshadow tattoo layer.
