Return to Blogging!

(And hopefully vlogging soon!)

Hello, you lovely people!

First of all I would like to explain the reason I haven’t posted anything for almost two weeks. My hubby and I have been in the process of getting a puppy these past weeks, and on Friday May 12th we adopted a gorgeous little chihuahua girl. She has been needing a lot of attention and supervising and when the time comes that she falls asleep I am pooped too, haha. We are both running on 3-5 hours of sleep these days, but so worth it though ❤
But anyway here is , in true spirit of Nea’s Little Corner, news far too late and just in time for nobody to care:

I got into Fameshed about a day after the previous post I made and I got the Apple Fall Mercantile Bookshelf Set. I absolutely love it! The doors open and close on touch and you get a HUD with some texture options for the interior of the bookshelves. There is a version without the doors as well so the choice is yours. I loved the look with doors, obviously.

The shelves come empty, but I took the books from my old LAQ books helves and placed them in the new ones along with some knick knack. I love how I can personalize the look of my new book shelves.
There also is a wonderful setup system that easily let’s you place the units flush with one another. Amazing detail and so easy to use!

In other way too late news I filmed the Deco(c)rate unboxing I spoke about. I’ll have to voice it though as the mic was off, so there was no voice recording. Derp! But once I get to do that I’ll try to get it uploaded as soon as possible. I have realized that I don’t have the time for vlogging at the moment. Our new puppy is deserving my time more so I’ll let you know when I am back at my Little corner of YouTube 🙂 ❤

On that note I’ll leave you guys and collapse in a chair

Exhausted but happy ❤ from Nea

How I make my Pictures

I finally got around to finishing the video where I quickly show you how I make my pictures. Yaay! I don’t speak in this one, but I will explain what little needs explaining here.

How I do my pictures

First, I am sorry that my windlight window is not fully in the screen. I thought about redoing the shot, but  I wanted to bring you my process as raw as possible so I decided against it. I might do a new, better video in the future though.

Now to the part where I actually make my picture come alive. First I decide on a setting. I picked a simple one with just me in a lounger on my little dock to ease the stress on my poor laptop, hehe.
From there I choose a pose, and then choose an angle and then fine tune the pose. I do it this way as some poses don’t look right for the picture if they look right from every other angle. If you know what I mean. I might also fine tune the angle of the furniture at this point if needed.
The next step for me is windlight. The all important WINDLIGHT! Did I mention I love windlights? Well I do.
Here I am using a windlight I made earlier. I saved it and use it as a base for when I make WL’s on the go like today. I love fiddling around to adjust the sun position, time of day and all that. I often use the arrow keys to really get the numbers how I want them.
When I am all happy with how the set up looks I hit the Snapshot button and pray that I don’t crash. Especially today as I had OBS recording as well. It went as smooth as one could expect even though you see me getting nervous with the cursor there, hehe. It all went good today though. I always take my snapshots for Flickr at width and height 6016 x 3147.

When all is well and good and the snapshot is saved with the date of the day, I take it into – drumroll please – Paint.net!
Badom tss. You can all laugh now. It works for me though, is easy to learn and is free:)
When in Paint.net I usually start by cropping the image if needed. I usually try a couple of crops just to be sure.
Then I look for things that might need some photo editing, like major clipping issues or that sort of thing. There was none of that in this snapshot so I went ahead and just finished it up.
I don’t usually add text though, but you guys deserved a little personal touch at the end.

So this is it really, really short and to the point, but this is as fast as I do my pictures mostly.
At a later point in time I might do a video where I make my own pose and set up a real scene from scratch, but for now my settings and laptop combined does not allow that.

A way more relaxed ❤ from Nea today.

Fighting for new shineys!

Today is just a quick update, as I am currently desperatly trying to get into Fameshed. RL stuff happened that prevented me from getting the shineys I wanted when I was lucky enough to have early access.

I picked up some neat freebies though, so I did not leave enpty handed, but what I really want is still in there, waiting for me to come and rescue it from the lag soup!

I also wante to mention that I am a bit overwhelmed about the response I have gotten on my stuttering videos. Thank you all so much! I do work on the requested video about how I do my pictures. Thanks so much for the request :-* !

 

I’ll leave you all for now while I contunue to try to get into the event. I’ll let you know when I do;) Completely stripped down ❤ from Nea.
