About bluisthenewblack

I'm a Second Life Avatar who loves talking anything photography. I'm what I call a classic "WIP" Work-in-Progress. I'm trying to "hone" my skills in PhotoShop and by challenging myself with GREAT designers within Second Life this gives me a greater ability to showcase their designs as well as make myself a better photographer, blogger and help keep my purse strings a little more closed these days. *grins* As a side note I have been on Flickr for some time. I just recently decided to Blog as a way to further develop and highlight the smaller items sometimes missed in bigger pictures. https://www.flickr.com/photos/132125807@N06/

Hi Everyone! So today I’m bringing you a little bit of a cyberish, city look. I recently was approved to blog for A&Y who does a lot of cyber, latex, and special items. I love the details in their items. The Hud is very custom friendly and the options you can choose for most of their items are actually what drew me to their store. They are Mostly Maitreya/Slink, and they do offer mods on chests so it’s all good IMHO.

So I’ve done a little bit of pulling back from my Blogging. Not because I don’t want too. I just really feel sometimes that “I have to do it all” because so many creators put out really great stuff. I am, currently happy with the amount of work I have and think for a bit I’m going to stay where I’m at as Designers go. Because I feel I do Better when I have less. So I guess for me the old saying goes. Less is MORE, not more is More.

Just food for my own thoughts honestly *ponders on that for a minute*

ok…go. Get coffee and thank-YOU for reading,

~Infernus~

Hi Everyone! Yeah…I’m not quite sure how to say the title of the outfit I’m wearing, but it’s really pretty and what kinda started this photo for me. I was shopping on Marketplace (which is a horrible mess IMO) and well I came across this outfit. It was rigged for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Physique, Hourglass so I said why not.

I really wanted to do something different for the New release from Aii. I can tell they worked really hard on this Bento tail which is BOM/Omega ready, so I wanted to show it the best way I knew how, all while trying to tell a story in my photo.

~Victoria The Victorian Vampire~

*Waves* Hi Everyone! I kinda had a bit of a play on words with today’s Blog post. I have to admit. This photo took me twice as long. One, because I redid it. I took the orig pic w/my BFF and then decided it didn’t show enough of the gown. The grown is very dark, but has these beautiful flexi sheer panels that I wanted to try to show. Alas…this is what I came up with. She’s hungry…but she’s that scary beautiful IMO.

Hi Everyone! So I’ve been fighting another migraine that seems to not wanna let up. This is the problem (for me) when seasons change. My little head (aka my barometer) wants to just kick into overdrive and not settle down.

Owell. Not to totally bore you to death, just the struggle is real. I wanna talk about the new Gacha set from AsteroidBox. It’s so fun. I’ve only been blogging for them the last couple months, but I thought this was a good set. Pretty much all is here except the hair and accessories. Love it when Designers do this.
