FOCUS Photo Fair: Workshops!

Today Hermes Kondor discussed SL camera controls, composition, lighting, and other topics — all illustrated with a mockup up living room and photos he’d taken using different viewpoints and camera angles. (Even if you missed today’s meeting, he’ll be giving a followup session on Wednesday, October 20th. Free!)

“Photography is the art of freezing time and space — and then making an instant permanent!”

Thursday, October 14th (today for most of you!), Kent Nowicka will host another Workshop! It will begin at 5 pm SLT. Yes, you can learn as well as buy cool stuff at FOCUS Photo Fair 2021…

Photo contests during FOCUS Photo Fair 2021? Absolutely!

You can drag and drop your (hopefully) award-winning ‘theme photo’ into a mail box at the far end of the exhibition hall. The FOCUS area is on the second floor. Be sure to make your image ‘full permissions’, please. (Right click. Properties. Check off all 8 boxes)

This week’s themes — as you can see — are Tattoos (11-13th), and Hats (14-16th). Oh, and thank the sponsors by stopping to their booths while you’re at the Fair!

Shopper’s Alert: Open 24/7!

The FOCUS Photo Fair 2021 is a photographer’s paradise. It’s hard not to spend lindens here unless you’re into buying mesh basketballs or prim roses. (Yes, that’s a pun). With 60-some vendors here you’ll fall in love with something cool, so walk around and find it.

This is only part of it. We don’t have 360-degree cams yet in Second Life. Shucks!

More music!

Today marks the start of the two-week long FOCUS Photography Fair 2021. More music at the at 6 pm SLT. (Break out your conversion tables in you don’t live in California!) Two hours of Friday night fun — and we all just wanna have fun, right?

Hoy empieza el FOCUS Photography Fair 2021 (que va a durar dos semanas). Se ofrece mas musica empezando a las seis (SLT). Si no sabe que hora es donde vive, abre su Table de Conversiones. Je, je. Esta tarde: dos horas de la musica que a Vd. le gusta — ¿y estamos aqui para divertirnos, verdad?

Preview of FOCUS Photo Fair 2021

If you love creating images, you’ll find all kinds of cool tools among the 60 or so vendors! Yeah, kinda medieval, huh?

It opens tomorrow, Friday, October 8th. And if you get tired of shopping there will be live music performances and a FREE learning workshop or two before the event ends in two weeks. Bring a friend, too! Dancing and shopping alone are fine, but hanging out with a friend or friends is better.
