Ice, Ice, Baby

Good morning… I’ve been working on this for a while! One of the things I’ve often mentioned was a key turning point for me for creating scenes and blogging in SL was the realisation that you can do things that you couldn’t do in real life and that it is ok!

Take this photo for example….in real life this scene would be a huge mess of melted ice cream, merging into a blob! When I first started decor blogging I would decorate a room or area in the mindset of living in it. I’d make sure there was enough room to move an avie around it. I wouldn’t raise something in the air if it wasn’t showing on the floor….because items don’t float in real life so I didn’t think of doing it in Second Life. Getting out of that mindset was the biggest change/improvement I made in my decor photography. Building a scene for the purpose of photography is completely different to decorating a room for living in. That is now the first piece of advice I give any budding decor blogger that asks.

All the credits on the items use in the photo are listed below with the majority coming from the fabulous InsurreKtion and Cinoe which are available now at The Arcade Gacha.
