If my swiss-cheese memory is cooperating, the very first of his photographs that held my [...]

As many of you know, I spend a fair amount of time on flickr looking at various artists’  work and following their evolution, and their favorite works.  The main reason for this is that our photography series (Meet SL Photographer) started with the mission to introduce artists that make the world look amazing – either [...]

If your SLife crosses paths with photography, in any shape or form, then you know the name Julie Hastings. And if you don’t, I suggest you start this very moment.

Welcome to the third installation of our Meet SL Photographer series. This series started as a simple idea of writing an article to introduce a few photographers whose works I liked. As I started looking around and spending endless hours on Flickr, I discovered various artistic approaches to post-processing of SL pictures. As a result, [...]

I still remember the very first time I saw a picture developed by Sixx Yangtz. I was looking through an online album of a friend, Sinnamon Aries, and came across a breath-taking photograph of her avatar. After she introduced me to Sixx’s work, I simply could not resist going back every day and looking at [...]
