With the position of our photographer having become vacant, we looked who among the people whose works we know might be suitable to ask, and very quickly decided that Trinity would be the perfect candidate. She was both excited and reluctant at that offer, due to her time constrains. But after a long time of consideration she finally agreed.

“Having been a long time supporter of the GREENE Concept, concept, I was thrilled to be asked to take over the design of product imagery. With such a range of innovative products and the appointment of a new designer, I discussed the idea of updating the product designs and taking them to the next level. The impending Halloween Specials allowed me to test a few different design treatments.

I am no stranger to the original product designs and subsequently I found it a little difficult to steer the newer designs away from that look. I decided at this stage to take a step back, speak to Peter and reassess what the brand wanted to portray.

Many issues face product images; for instance the constraints that SecondLife/ XStreetSL/ OnRez place on them. OnRez for instance forces square image listings, therefore a landscape or portrait shot appears squashed. It’s a rather annoying, yet unfortunate fact of life. So at this stage I designed a square template. It will not be squashed online and is also straight 1:1 proportion in-world.

Obviously GREENE Concept prides itself on low prim sculpt furnishings, that speaks for itself in the images. I wanted to draw attention to other main key elements in the GREENE Concept range. Firstly the wonderful variation of sit poses and how these products look in situ and secondly, the amazingly detailed hand drawn textures on all of these products.

From here the new design template was confirmed and now the update of older image shots begins over the coming weeks.”
