LUMIPro Spotlight!

*** She walks into the room her dress swooshing as her hips sway. Looking over her shoulder her sultry red lips break into a smile she ushers five men in suits carrying frames to follow her. As the men hangup each photo she turns her attention to you. ***

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a fabulous February! My birthday is almost here, and I thought I would celebrate with a LUMIPro Spotlight. let's do this!


Congratulations to all those chosen as a spotlight! The talent in our group never ceases to amaze me. If you love the art that you see, and you would like to learn more about LUMIPro, try a full demo at our headquarters. You can also find us on the marketplace

Oh and for all of the current LUMIPro users don't forget about our ''He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not'' Gallery Show. You can find the details here.

Well until next time... Happy Shooting!

What Is LUMIPro?

*** Samantha walks in wearing a big warm coat, a fluffy sweater, and boots. In one hand she is carrying a pitcher of beer and in the other hand, she has a big plate of wings. Carefully sitting them carefully down on the table she turns to you with a playful smile. ***

Why hello there! Whether the crazy weather has you stuck indoors or you are waiting to watch the Superbowl I thought this would be a great time to talk about what LUMIPro can offer your second life.

LUMIPro is a professional grade lighting tool and yet easy to start using the day you buy it.

- Fine control of lighting and shadows
- Ability to pose yourself and/or all your models and groups as large as 10
- Ability to save your scene lighting, camera, pose, and eye position and restore it on another day, even with different models
- Create and save your own favorite colors
- Shoot anywhere without rez even on no-script sims.  Great for product designers and bloggers
- Hold 100s of your own purchased or created animation or use over 200 animations and exclusive mocaps from some of the grid’s best designers
- Updates are always FREE for life

Since I purchased my LUMIPro in 2013 I have seen some amazing work created by various artists. I am always in awe of the work people create using LUMIPro. Let me share just a couple...

These photos barely scratch the surface of what LUMIPro users have created. To see more check out the LUMIPro Flickr Group. You can also find us on Marketplace. Here are some of the reviews you will find...

Wonderful Picture Assist

I'm very pleased with this lighting system. It is very versatile and easy to get started, but so many more options to get into and learn about as you get more familiar.

Great product with many options!

If you want to simplify your lighting and take the guess work out of set up this is the way to go! So many features, highly recommended ♥

Awesome Photo Lighting System!!
Posted July 17, 2017 by CarlWeed 5 stars
LUMIPro is by far, the best lighting system in SL for photography that I have found. I have several other photo studio systems but none have the capabilities that LUMIPro has for lighting control with color, intensity, positioning, casting shadows, etc. for your photo shoots. The biggest selling feature to me is having the ability to take your lighting anywhere in SL and use it, including the no-rez areas of SL. I wanted to get out of my portrait studio but proper lighting was a problem. Now I have great lighting anywhere I shoot in SL! Other bonuses of the system are being able to control multiple models from the HUD without having to instruct them to move or change positions or anything. The system has many great built in poses (not the cheap ones either) that will get you going in no time with very professional looking photos. The eye control system is also another great tool to assist in getting those eyes just right for your shot. If you are serious about capturing great professional photos in SL, this photo lighting system is well worth the investment. It will be the last one you will ever buy I think. The one tip I would give anyone who buys this system and does not have previous experience with earlier versions of LUMIPro is... take maybe 30 minutes or so of your time and watch all of the great video tutorials on their website. They run through many of the features, as there are many, and they will give you a much better understanding of what all you can do with this system without a lot of reading. I had never used LUMIPro before and this is what I did after I purchased it. Within no time, I was off and shooting some great photos with this system.My hats off to the creator and developer of this system. Nice job!!

If you still aren't sure if LUMIPro is for you why not try a fully functioning demo at LUMIPro's World Headquarters? If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact Samantha Ansar-Buscaylet in world.

Oh and before I forget to our current LUMIPro users... Don't forget the upcoming Gallery Show!

Until next time... Be Bold, Be Creative, and Happy Shooting!

LUMIPro's Holiday Bash Is Here!

* She rushes around the party venue checking lights and making sure it's decoration is just right. Suddenly there is a knock at the door, and she scurries over only opening the door a crack. Seeing you on the other side she hastily straightens up her messy hair and smiles. *

.LUMIPro's Holiday Giveaway and Party!

*** As she walks into the room there are several men and women putting up lights, arranging seating, and placing decorations. Her red dress sparkles in the glow of the Christmas lights as she turns looking around the room with excitement in her eyes. Spotting it behind her she gives you a big smile. ***

Why hello there! As you all can see we are busy at work getting ready for LUMIPro's holiday party! Since you're here when I share some of the details? We are so excited to not only be putting on a party this year but to be also giving away gift cards from some of Second Life's best creators! Normally we do a LUMIPro release party around this time of year, but since we launched LUMIPro 18 earlier this year Stefan and I decided we couldn't leave you guys with the holiday party. Here are the details... 

The location will be announced the night before the party. We are so excited to be partnering with [Cynful], Sweet Thing, and United Colors! We will be randomly giving away gift cards from each of them throughout the night. At the end of the night, we will also be giving away a LUMIPro gift certificate! Don't forget to be creative, be bold, and dress to impress! We will be looking for that creativity! We would like to thank our sponsors for helping us spread some holiday cheer this year.

This party is open to everyone LUMIPro users and nonusers alike (No child Avatars)! So tell your friends. Grab some eggnog, put on your best holiday gear, and come join us for some great music and a good time!

I can't wait to see you all there but you must go for now we have lots of work to do.
