Windlight Settings Challenge

Practicing my cooking skills

Hey guys! Berry has another challenge for us about windlights. I’m not sure how helpful I will be because I still feel like a noob when it comes to things like this. But, I’ll give it a shot  😀

Do you use windlight while taking pictures? If not, why not?

No….I just set up a ton of lights to emulate windlight settings…
…of course I use windlight – I want to know who doesn’t use windlight for photos (and still take great pictures).

When taking a closeup snapshot for a profile picture, which windlight preset do you use most often?

I can’t really say if I have a particular one that I use – I just flip to various lights until I see one that looks good. I do favor brighter lights like Berry’s StrawberrySingh.com – Closeups one. I just downloaded her newer settings (first time I did that  so see? I’m learning :D)

Which windlight presets do you use for full body portraits?

Oh that entirely depends on the mood I want to portray, plus what looks best with the clothing and settings that I like. I guess I could stand to pick a few “classic” settings so that my photos can “look” like mine, if that makes any sense.

If you do landscape photography, which windlights do you use for that most often?

I don’t know 😦 When I do take scenic photos, I try to use windlight to capture the mood. I’ll show you what I mean:

Two different sims with two different themes. I don’t remember the windlights that I used, but I can’t see how you would use the same windlight for both. One has a more vibrant feel, especially with the use of primary colors; the other one has a more rustic/old country feel to it.

Do you have any tricks or tips that you could share for using Windlight effectively?

Yeah – don’t be afraid to use windlight haha. After that, looking at various windlights and tweaking the default settings is great too.

Have you created any windlights that you would be willing to share with us?

I have one that my friend had originally made for water, and then when I tweaked it, she liked my changes. I am not really sure how to upload files and the like – we did ours manually. So if you feel like reading, go ahead!
