Photospot: Whimsical Embryo

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.

Seems like just about everyone these days is coming out with fully-mesh avatars that are smaller than typical and lean to the cute and whimsical end of the spectrum. An avatar like that calls for a special place to photograph it. So, bring out your Petites, Dolls, Littles and everything darling. Today's Photospot is a lovely little parcel packed with plenty of flowers, colorful sprites and gentle rain to support and handle all the cute and whimsical you can give it.

SLU Photospot: Whimsical Embryo

You might recall the (now-defunct) Embryo sim. Today's spot is also made by Siestabril Nitely, one of the Embryo creators. This mini-Embryo, labeled as home to the Un Jour shop, somehow manages to contain much of the charm and whimsy of the full sim original. Toss a little Windlight around to alter the sun's direction or color, and there's plenty to keep you busy for a time as you photograph your own little fairy tale. 

SLU Photospot: Outside the cabin

The SLurl will give you a beacon toward one end of the building, but this is a small parcel with something like fifteen hundred million great photo angles, so definitely wander around and keep your camera on the move. Also, note that this area is solidly stuffed with prims, most of which are alpha and packing glow, so it might be a kindness to your computer to reduce your Draw distance for the duration you are here. You can always turn it up again when you leave...if you ever want to leave.

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!
