Taking Group Photos in Second Life: I’m Looking for Good Group Poses

When I take pictures of my Second Life avatars, they are usually shots of individuals, but every so often, I like to whip up a group photo! And so tonight, I dug through my inventory and found an old group pose set, and took a group shot (please click on the picture to see the full-size version over on Flickr):

From left to right: Heath Homewood, Lily Pond, Vanity Fair, Moesha Heartsong, Valentina Vonbaum, and Morden Winkler. Heath and Morden were the first two avatars I ever created, 14 years ago!

Here’s a more formal second group shot of my most-used Second Life avatars, made using a portrait pose I picked up from a store called HotDog (once again, just click on it to see it full-size in Flickr):

I’m looking for good group poses for more photos, so if you know of any that you can recommend, for 6 to 10 avatars, please let me know! Thanks. I’d also be interested to learn more about tools which allow you to make adjustments to existing poses, e.g. making eyes look in a certain direction or moving a hand slightly. Much obliged! Please feel free to leave a comment with your suggestions of poses or tools, thanks!

  1. Look up AnyPose Expression and Animare on MP. There used to be a cheap version of Animare but now it costs, but it might be worth looking into and can be demo’d inworld. AnyPose works for eyes and apparently there is a “puppet” mode that can let you control other av’s.
