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, [...]

Petal Fairlock is a RL photographer whose artistic voice is expressed through images taken from nature with a Holga camera, which she describes as, “a wonderful plastic camera with very little technology, allowing me to focus more on my composition and connection with the natural world.” Her images are not only taken without high-tech gadgetry, [...]
