Advent Ended


It's been hard for me to write recently - hard to put words down or organize myself in some sensible order in black and white. I could blame a lot of things - work stress, the season, general ennui - but the long and the short of it is that while I've had fun gathering things up and snapping pictures, talking about them was much less welcome. I've been thinking about the unsung support, though, and those who so often aren't mentioned - and for photography in Second Life that is usually the pose maker. I've been blogging using Grafica for some time, and have been really enjoying the latest offerings - like the pose in the below picture which is a group gift. He makes poses for angles, poses for odd edges and partial views, and poses with character and flow. In contrast to a lot of posemakers, his emphasis is not on showing off fashion but rather on expression and dance; a fair number of his sets references more rarely seen dance styles than the relatively more common ballet. There's also an airborn quality about Grafica poses which make him my go-to maker when I want to create something fluid and expressive. Now's a good time to join his group and get the free gift as well - it's a lovely, fall back pose.
