|Atomo saves Keshi from the supernova|
We are featuring the very animated and fun photography of Jesse Belavidorico today, whom many of you may know as a host from Aqua Lounge. I asked Jess to share some information about himself and some his photography with our readers, and his writing is carried in the italics below:

From Jesse Belavidorico:
I'm a down to earth guy who enjoys trying to make people feel welcome and comfortable. I enjoy teaching and helping. I mostly keep to myself & my family & a very tight knit group of friends.I work as a host & a dancer in several clubs in SL, as it is my goal to lead a second life that is self-sustaining. I enjoy SL photography mainly as a hobby, although i have been known to take pics for other people on occasion. I am available for hire, although I do not actively seek to pursue photography as a career.

One thing that may be unique about my photographs is that they are never edited after the picture is taken, except maybe to add a name. I prefer to adjust my windlight settings in world. Depending on the subject matter & mood, sometimes I like the avatar to be bright & pop, while other times I like to play with shadow. I like to use a scenic background that coordinates with the fashion of the subject, and I also like to crop my photos as I take them. I am more of a purist, preferring not to cut off hands or parts of heads in my shots, and I prefer close up shots.

I like to try to capture emotional expression in my photos if possible. I prefer to compose my pictures so that the subject is off center, i think this adds interest to the shot, and I like to consider objects in the background to create subtle geometry between the subject and the objects.
In RL I'm an interior designer. I feel I have a good eye for color & drama both in fashion and photography. I think my professional background has also helped when it comes to framing shots, and in styling for the photo shoot.
