Lights, Camera, Action!!
Drama seems to be a common theme for SLers, but the kind of drama doesn't always have to be in the social atmosphere. It can be found in pictures. A good way to create drama is playing off of light and shadow. Somtimes it can be with a crop or even with color. It also can be accomplished with styling to strike a mood.
Never be afraid to play because sometimes what is around a corner is so much more fabulous than what could have previously been imagined.
Yesterday a friend of mine had a fabulous picture but was stuck trying to make it work right in the proper dimensions she needed. Playing with rotation we found the proper fitting that still allowed the picture to sing its full glory. Might not have been what she really wanted but still worked.
Never give up, never stop trying, and leave the social drama at the doorstep.
