Digue The Beat


I have yet another post featuring items from the December round of BishBox. My hair, shoes and jacket all come from this very impressive first subscription offering. Do make sure you stop by the BishBox headquarters to sign up for January’s edition, and if you didn’t get the December version, you can still grab it there for a higher price. It’s well worth your money, after you have returned the fuzzy socks from Aunt Martha and the ugly sweater from Cousin Ed.

I shot this photo at La Digue du Braek, the sister sim of Furillen (which is all decked out now as Endor of Star Wars fame). I had visited Digue a few times but hadn’t yet shot a single photo, until I wandered into the upstairs of the warehouse and found this eerily unsettling movie playing. I have always wanted to be in the spotlight, and doing an almost dirty dance with Mickey seemed like the right time.

I highly recommend this unique location. The scenery is amazing and the detail is divine. And the entertainment…you can Digue the beat!

A Flock of Birds, A Jug of Roses & Some Kick-Arse Sandals

1 A Flock of Birds & A Jug of Roses sm

When I am in the middle of photographing a lot of review copies, I often find myself getting stressed. Not because I “have” to blog them, but because I am worried I won’t do them justice. I have been known to scrap entire shoots, which often take hours to stage and photograph. Those are typically the shoots that I know while I am photographing just aren’t right, but I tell myself with just one more light change or camera angle, I’ll get something usable. It is a rationalisation that rarely works.

That happened to me today. I had already completed two shoots (more posts to come!), and I wanted to get the Olivia Sandals from done. My previous two shoots were Home & Garden and just didn’t lend themselves to me being in the picture. So, I decided to sim-hop to find a perfect location.

After visiting about six and either not finding what I wanted or being lagged out, I headed home, deciding instead to build my own set. Which I did. Which I photographed.

Which I hated.

So, I gave up. And went shopping. Then decided to put together a set for some therapeutic “just because” photography. And guess what? I plopped my avi-self down, changed my camera angle to only take in a small portion of the space I had created and found my photo.

A flock of birds, a jug of roses and some kick-arse sandals.

I could have kept my mouth shut and you would have thought this was all planned. But hey…desperation is the mother of necessity.

Or however that saying goes…
