You can learn more about Reya below:
I have been around for some time, and have always been impressed by the vivid imaginations of the many artists that live in this virtual slice of the world. I started taking photos for fun and perhaps contribute a small token of my talent to it all. I am also owner of Rise Design Jewelry & Accessories, so my enjoyment of Second Life is now three-fold; creating pictures for myself and others to enjoy, meeting new people from all over the world, and creating high-quality mesh accessories.

To all my fellow shutterbugs and those that just like to appreciate the art of others, remember there’s always something beautiful in front you–just look in the mirror!

If interested in acquiring a photo, please contact me in-world, “Reya Darkstone”.

Hi, I’m most happy to come into SL and share my real life paintings with you.

The best way to explain who I am and what I do is to simply invite you to my website.

https://www.InspirationArtJournal.com

You are very welcome to join me in one of my live zoom classes/circles or enjoy experiencing one of my FREE online video classes. Naturally, if you live in Orange County, California, once in person activities resume, join me in a class! I have lots of fun!

In the meantime, come on over to my NEW studio, courtesy of the Phoenix Artists Collaboration group (Thank you Audie and Skye) located on the gorgeous Cherished Melody sim and have a look at what I’m currently showing in honor of the Divine Feminine.

If you see something you like, just get me an IM or just say “hi” — I love to chat!

Have Fun Creating!
Kisma

And if Dimi’s name sounds familiar it is because in addition to be a very talented artist and photographer he is also a very talented live performer! You can read more about Dimi below:

DimiVan Ludwig

DimiVan Ludwig, known as Dimi by his friends, is a long time Second Life and Real Life photographer. Most know Dimi as an acoustic musician, but when he isn’t performing, he can often be found snapping photos. He calls himself a novice, but those who have seen his photographs would say otherwise. He frames his shots with the final product in mind, editing very little in post production. He uses his Nikon d3500 to shoot real life landscapes. In Second Life, he prefers to snap portraits utilizing the features provided by LUMIPro. You can find his work on his personal webiste: https://diminished9th.wixsite.com/mysiteand on his Flickr account: https://www.flickr.com/photos/diminished9th/
