Photospot: Columns and Filigree

Photospot on SL Unearthed is a semi-regular feature that highlights a Second Life spot that is a cool place at which to take portrait photos inworld. Not an entire sim, not even a complete parcel, but just a single specific location - a spot - with portrait opportunity.

With its black and white marble-tiled flooring, red columns with gold trim, the delicate curlicued wall panels and hanging ivy, today's Photospot could be a good location for flaunting anything from elegant tuxedos and ballgowns to posing deranged dollies.

Shadows are especially interesting here. The tiled flooring receives shadows poorly or not at all (perhaps it just didn't like the Windlight settings I tried), but on other things - including your star model - the shadows are a delight. Help the sun shine through those filigree panels, and you'll see instantly what I mean.

Beyond being a "figurehead" for Domus Land Rentals, the pavilion appears to serve no other purpose except to excite the imagination. What better reason does something need in Second Life? Mix in a little Windlight, and it's a winning combination.

Style notes: The lovely gown is by F.I.S.L, skin is Ramya (Yasum) with layered lipsticks from Amacci and Mock. Hair is LeLutka, jewelry and gloves (tinted) are from Curious Kitties.

Flickr members: you're invited to join the SL Unearthed Photospot group and add your pictures taken at Photospot locations to the group pool.
Take note that very little in SL stays the same for very long. After even a short while, Photospot locations may be gone or changed in a significant way that renders their SLurls ineffective as originally intended, so be sure to grab these opportunities as they come!
