From time to time someone always asks me what windlights I use, and my answer is always the same. When I'm setting up for a photo, I choose a base windlight and then edit it until I am satisfied, finally saving it under a brain-fart name. At the end of the day the result windlight is my own.

For a while I had my older windlights available via a Dropbox link - but they were messy, a bit like my mind! Now that I have some free time, I decided to go ahead and tidy them up to reupload in case someone wants to use or edit them.

The 2016 collection is complete and is available HERE

The 2017 collection, HERE

The 2018 collection can be downloaded HERE

What has changed in 2018?

I added an SL Water folder which only holds (very few) set-ups but you might find them useful as some of them were matched with corresponding WLs and may be referenced in my photos.

The 2019 collection has now been COMPLETED and be downloaded HERE

The 2019 collection includes two new windlights, specially catered for a FOXCITY VIP group gift Spotlight (January 2020) - "only silhouettes". See the product information HERE.

You can download the few water presets HERE.

Please note, the installation folder is different (water instead of skies)!


******************

Click 'Download' and the .ZIP file containing all of the windlights and a tutorial text file will be yours. Please note that in case you are using a different viewer to standard, the instructions vary (the location of the 'skies' folder will be in 'Firestorm' instead of 'Second Life' or 'Black Dragon' folder, for example.)

Please remember that in a lot of cases I use additional (artificial) light to help me achieve the result I want. For tutorials and tips please visit my Youtube channel HERE.

Also! A lot of my windlights are for photos within a set, or a photo booth, and not outdoors - and so they were saved purely due to how the light affects the subject, and not how the sky/water look! This is important.

~ 2020 bonus ~


I decided to publish some of my personal light/bokeh photos I used to enhance my SL pictures. I hope you'll find them useful in your creations as well.



You can download them HERE individually or as a zip file. To use them as overlays, please insert / paste them onto your image in Photoshop (or another editing program) and use the layer blending mode to choose something that works for you (for example, hard light, or lighten, or overlay etc.)

Enjoy, and happy New Year :)
