New Year ~ New You!!

"Everyday gets longer. 
Brings just a little more light. 
And my horizons change 
As the weeks speed by"

January comes after a month of celebrations. At the end of the party, when we wind up, we are full with memories. As promised in the earlier blog there are a lot of things lined up. But I do not want to empty my pocket on the first day itself. Confused, I went on a stroll in Second Life.

You may visit the place here.

In the foggy January morning, I wanted to give a shot at photography again. I played around with the day preset editor to get the fog effect. The following is a raw snapshot with the fog effect. Unless I learn, the photography part III would not be coming out. In the snapshot, the environment is definitely foggy, however, there is a lot to do with the shadow effects on the avatar.You may want to visit Strawberry Singh's tutorials to learn how to shade.

Why did I choose photography today?

There is a contest conducted by Linden Labs. "New Year~ New You"

Entry to the contest is from January 1st, 2014 and ends on February 9th, 2014. The winner gets a lump sum of  L$10,000, followed by first, second and third runners up with L$ 5000, L$ 3000, L$ 1000 respectively.

Which photograph did I enter?

Why this photograph?

It portraits my old avatar of 2012 (small below), 2013 (small above) and my current (on sofa)2014. This picture is a memory of my journey from 9th March, 2012. As my avatar has evolved, so have I as an individual. Now I have a family with my sl/rl husband and two cute sl daughters. 

What have I worn?

Skin from Leona, Shape from Sophisticates, Hair from Exile, Outfit from Gizza (April group gift), Shoes from Bootgasm, Bangles from Zahra's.
