What a Difference a WL Makes

I’m taking a photographer course at an incredible school in SL called Visionaire Institute. Last week’s lesson was on Windlight (WL)settings and how they can serve to enhance a photo. This Photo Tool option found at the bottom of the “World” tab in the dashboard of the Firestorm viewer, can serve to enhance a photo and set a tone.

The assignment was to take an identical photo but with four different WL settings in the theme of the four seasons. I decided to challenge myself further by going to a sim with run down city streets enhance the drab city streets. You’ll see the WL’s I chose are from the “TOR” family which are mostly edgy, surreal and  brightly colored.

Winter

The cool tones with the strong back light create the tone of a cool early winter morning. [TOR] BIG SUN - Awwyeah-

Have you experimented with WL settings? What has your experience been with them? Please post a comment, I’d love to hear about it.

Cheers,

  1. My all time favorite for viewing is Wastelands while for blogs I keep hitting back to StrawberrySingh Close Ups. They are just very nice on the skin.
    Neat post, people should indeed use it more !!! ( I do it all the time)

    1. Thanks Em-Lies. I agree that WL’s should be used more. They really are a powerful tool. I haven’t tried the Wastelands WL for my photos yet but I sure will. Yes Strawberries WL’s are awesome!

      Cheers,
