I recieved more than 500 notitifications that guestbook-entries are to be moderated. None of them were non-SPAM. So I closed the guestbook temporarily.

Astrud & Stan  0

Cat.: Allgemein, Events by: Elwood

There are several coincidences in the last few weeks.

First, I did something I would have thought to be impossible 2 or 3 months ago. There was a wedding in SL and I wasn’t just a guest, no I was DJ and helped the brides a little wit some items from my inventory.

Then, there was this guy with a gallery in SL, my next bigger photo project already has a place to be shown in.

Today Miefmupfel Willis asked me to participate in a expo in her mall. They give us a topic and we will make the photos. Great.

Lunde Jae in a Venice hotel  0

Cat.: Allgemein, Events by: Elwood

This one is taken down the atrium-like staircase of a Venice hotel where I’ve been guest.


Here is the most perfect photograph of this project although it wasn’t that complex from the technical point of view: Just three layers, no big corrections of colors, but the composition is almost perfect. Thank you, Lunde, it was big fun taking the shots, you are a very creative model. We will repeat this creative session in my next project, do we?


Leda and Shelli buying a car  0

Cat.: Allgemein, Events by: Elwood

Those two sweet ladies are checking out a new convertible. Funny enough: One of them is driving such a SMART in RL, too.


This one is the most complex work I did. 27 objects (I use Corel Photopaint instead of Photoshop, in Photshop it would have been 27 layers) to put the avatars in, place their names on the numberplates, and let Leda sit in the car in a natural way. For Leda I even created a specific pose with QAvimator. Thank you and I’m looking forward to your wedding in 2 weeks!

Salome Soderstrom buying L$  0

Cat.: Events by: Elwood

I shot this one in a Düsseldorf subway station.


Salome was very cooperative at this shot. But it was thin ice trying to put an avatar so plain and small at this place. But after I put the SLX-Logos insted ot the EC (Eurocheck) Logos she was found. I hope Salome will be one of my models for the next SL-project, too .

Keira and Nadja in Venice  0

Cat.: Allgemein, Events by: Elwood

Here you can see that Keira Wilder and Nadja Avalanche have been in Venice/Italy in April 2007.


Keira, Nadja, it was big fun doing this shot. They were glad for an opportunity to wear their venice-style dresses. But it was hard work to get them out of the hot Bits & Bobs kiss animation after I finished the pictures ;-)

Rose Scintilla on Sea Lillies  0

Cat.: Allgemein, Events by: Elwood

Rose does have a Sea Lilly (Nénuphars) in SL to live in. I took a shot of her in Sea Lillies.


For this picture I needed double luck and lots of avatar-shots. First, I wasn’t inspired where to put this beautiful lady from Switzerland. When I saw this little lake in a friend’s garden I remembered Rose to have a giant sea lilly in SL. The light was perfect, no chance to repeat this moment after I went home and got the cam. Lucky enough my cellphone has a 2 megapixel camera. That was my first lucky moment.
Then there was no chance to get her sitting on the ground without the prim-parts of her skirts vanishing in the ground - they are phantom. So we decided to let her do a club dance and I made lots of snapshots, more than 80. Just tone of them was good enough for this project. The others all had problems with arms or legs conflicting with the prim skirt or strange looking faces. Having found this pic in the tile of bad ones is my second lucky moment.

Exposition opening was a success  0

Cat.: Allgemein, Events by: Elwood

The grand opening of my exposition yesterday was a success. More than 50 visitors enjoyed the 8 pictures I have created for the event.

vernissage_008.jpg A little problem was caused by some griefers. Keira opened another club close to the Blue Moon at 18:00 CEST, 9:00 PDT, and someone managed to crash the sim several times, last time it was up again 15 minutes before I expected the first visitors.

vernissage_006.jpg But Keira managed to prevent further crashs. Too bad, that the table with champagner and a notecard dispenser disapeared. I had to recreate them on the fly with the help of Karen Ceawlin.

The feedback for the pictures was great.

vernissage_011.jpg The picture that was the best in my opinion be seen here with the mode in front of it.

SL meets RL - Avatar’s Dreams  0

Cat.: Allgemein, Events by: Elwood

I already asked if you are knowing what your avatar is doing while you are offline.

Soon you can see an exhibition of photographs I have taken showing real SL avatars in RL scenes. Surprising high quality pictures of avatars at places you would never expect to meet them - or would you?

Invitation for Exhibition

The pictures are shown in Keira Wilder’s Once in a Blue Moon Jazz Club in Blue Moon Bay.

Do you know what your Avatar is doing while you are offline?  0

Cat.: Allgemein by: Elwood

I found some pictures that proof what some of us already expected: They live. And some karen_uniflex_tn.jpg of them are living next door.
