This spotlight is on the following Windlight Art Fellows: Wicca Merlin, Bluesrocker Resident, and Chrysterox Resident:
Wicca Merlin came to Second Life 2007 when a friend told her she could experience music from other countries as her home country of Germany did not afford her the same exposure to music from around the globe. Presently Wicca is a designer and has her own brand, Wicca’s Wardrobe. Wicca’s Wardrobe is a team of 4 people – Veovis, Redclaw and Wicca – who design and create together and Prisilla, who is the good soul and GM.
She is a well known, experienced and respected model and blogger who enjoys mentoring others. In her blogging and photography, she always strives to be different, bringing in her love of fantasy and Avant Garde, her photography always takes on a bit of an edge. Wicca was surprised that her photography would be considered art and was flattered to be invited to create an exhibit.
I’ve been involved in the arts most of my life. Coming from a musical background, I have had a very keen appreciation of the creative process, whether it be in music, the performing arts,painting, writing or photography. Having that interest sparked my involvement in the artistic possibilities of Second Life.
As for the creating of the photos, I much prefer shooting out on location in the multitude of amazing sims which populate SL than in a studio, as I feel I get much better results that way. Since starting seriously taking photographs in SL about a year and a half ago, I have broadened my horizons in what wonders this virtual world has to offer. Really, the only limits are those of the imagination.
I like to be diverse in my works, and I love taking portraits, landscapes and profile photos equally. Wherever my muse takes me at any given time. I do strive to push the boundaries of what can be done with Second Life photography.
In addition to SL photography, I currently run an on again, off again SL travel blog, Blue Bones Bagat with my partner Bones Delicioso-Rocker, a chronicle of our journeys through the various amazing builds Second Life has to offer :
I would like to thank two people, without whom I would not be doing what I am doing today. Kaijah Chrome, whose photography class spurred me to pursue photography in Second Life, and Bones Delicioso-Rocker. My partner in love and crime. My muse more than she will ever know.
An avid SL Explorer, I enjoy the creativity I find in art, design, music and dance. I am in constant wonder at the creations & devotions of the artist I find in SL. I use SL as my personal playground and with my photos I try to capture a brief moment to share or remember.
Lighting and mood are critical components in my photos. My goal is to tell a story in a single photo.I freely use tools available in SL. I may have a goddess complex because I enjoy playing with the sun and the moon. I use very little outside photo enhancement tools other than cropping, preferring to keep true to the essence of Sl
