The other night found Luke and Bre back at the Ohm location, but this time during a helicopter extrication after rescuing an asset. Although the third “Angel” was not available, Luke and Bre fought back the assailants long enough for the other team to secure the asset, and I had the chance to take a few photographs to document their tactical work, which would otherwise forever remain unknown.
Unfortunately the enemy had all ready attacked the local police department’s response team, but were able to get away safely as Luke and Bre dangled from the helicopter’s rope ladder, providing cover fire. Near the end, Bre grew frustrated and retrieved her favorite weapon to make sure that the assailants would back off.
Ohm is a partial sim that is open to the public (please note that it is an adult sim though) and is incredibly landscaped to be an apocalyptic scene with a variety of broken down or destroyed vignettes within the concept. We bought the SH RP Prop Gun – 870 Shotgun with HUD at Man-Pocalypse and couldn’t resist having a little fun with the guns in a little photoshoot at Ohm.
Note: I’m leaving the pictures a bit larger than usual, since they have more detail, are darker, and are scenes instead of closeups.
If you’re into a cool photoshoot or want to enjoy the awesome landscaping of a destroyed town, I definitely recommend checking out Ohm. I joined the group (I don’t know if it’s necessary for rezzing, but did just in case), and was able to even rez poseballs as needed. Most of the posing was done via the HUD that comes with the Shotgun, which is currently 400L at the event. A bit expensive for our usually frugal budget, but it has some handy animations for photoshoots (even walking and running aimed animations [!], although those didn’t photograph so well, so I didn’t include those lol), and they look so good that we’ll definitely be having some fun photoshoots with them again. Plus, it comes with a drawn version and the slung behind the back version, as well! We had a lot of fun and took way too many pictures while playing with windlights and angles. 🙂 Before I go, one little tip if you’re interested in doing one of these style photoshoots. Invest in the LUMIPro HUD, available on the MP. It’s expensive, but can be used with other avatars as well and super modifiable to fit your needs, and has way better lighting than face lights. I almost always use it when using alternate windlights than CalWL or another bright WL. Just add the HUD, attach the light balls (adjust if desired), pick a setting, and then click hide. There are different styles of light angles built right in or you can move the light balls around to get the look you’re going for, plus you can even change the colors they emit (which I’ll be showing in my next post, where I did a little color experiment that I saw on Pinterest that photographers have done in RL!). Anyway, I hope the tidbits are handy and you have some fun exploring while wandering SL during lockdown. Stay safe and healthy! 🙂
