Splats and photobombing, A day at the Faire..

First of all, I have to say I am very, very honoured to be part of the team of Fantasy Faire Photographers (and writers)!
For me, this annual event is something I look forward to every year, starting the moment the Faire ends.

* (FF Photographers: Dancing Veeper, Alisaundra Andel, Dr. Justen Tyme, Wildstar Beaumont, Tamzin Zigalia,  Asher Law and yours truly)

I have gotten the most lovely compliments and comments on the pics I have published so far, and that makes me smile so much. I do my best to visually document the amazing sims, for now and for when we have to wait another 12 months till the next Faire appears.

zOMG. I was just changing outfits and ‘someone’ put a shiny tower over me (@ Aurora)

Being a ‘FF Photographer’  meant that I have had the privilege to access the sims even before the merchants got in and set up their shops.
This is why a lot of my pictures are without vendors, no crowds and it made it possible to go all the way into ultra graphics and huge distance draw,  taking high-res pics without crashing.
I hope this answers some of the questions I got on how I managed some of my images. No secret magic in there (sigh….), no derendering, hardly any post processing needed on sims without vendors and no people on it, did that trick for me :).

Those pics are for the imagery archive of the Faire, are used as teasers on websites, for posters and so on.
The Faire is still incredibly photogenic, we – the FF Photographers – keep on snapping pics every day, we do not stop!

You should too, and add your images to the Fantasy Faire Flickr group!  Or even join the Calendar-contest and get the change to have  your image in the real life Fantasy Faire Calender 2016!
And even if you are not into taking pics, you should come visit and be in awe!

Also. The life of an SL Photographer on the Faire, isn’t all that romantic! Noooo! It is dangerous even! No, really!
As the images in this post show, I got photo- bombed, got a fountain build on my head and when I thought I was in a safe place to try out my mermaid-tail before going to the next sim – I found myself in a sudden shiny tower on Aurora.

Happy Faire Day everyone and don’t forget to bring your camera!
