MissDirtyNapalm, one of the creators here (and elsewhere, 'cause she's so damn cool) wanted to start a new thread! I think it's a great idea.  I'd like to go ahead and open this up, any time you guys find a cool new object, hair, hack, or anything, post it!  The list should look like the one MDN sent me:

The Little Details!

229 in-game Maxis Hidden Objects in Collection Files by Frillen
Dragable Gutters by Frillen
TV Antennas by Frillen
100 Walls, Floors, and Terrains by Frillen*

OFB Craft Objects in Collections by Windkeeper*
Buyable Uni & NL Non-Buyable Objects by Petreak

*There are more awesome items by this creator on their profile!

See? It includes links and a description! Cool!  So, please share your finds with us, and earn some karma points in the process!

Great idea! Should we post free content only or just make a note if it's sub stuff?

I would imagine you could post any content (except adult content, of course), as long as you leave a little note that they're pay items like you mentioned.  All the stuff I listed was free, and most of it is from MTS2. Wink

this is a great idea brenda!!!...
these are a must for contests and posing. "omsp." allows you to pose your sims on beds, counters, tables and coffee tables...etc
beds and counters
end tables
desks and tables
coffee tables
follow the links in the thread to find a tutorial by hystericalparoxym on how to use them.
I always wondered how people got those little lights behind their sims. and these are those
xanathons star lamps check out xanathons page for heaps of cool stuff.

What Dese said...SOOOOO much practice. And I'm not even close to some of these people. I love looking at the pics of people I admire. You can learn a lot of about composition by looking at different pictures.
I tend to plan how I want my pics to look. I decide what I'm going to do first, and then build the sets I need, and then figure out what animations I'll use, and then shoot.
Oooo...and flexibility and time is important. I had to rebuild a set in the middle of a shoot because I was a dodo and put the bed too close to the wall...
And...uh...that's all for now. I can't think straight any more. LOL!

The "One more slot package" is incredible.
 
I have been using GunMod's Camera found here at MTS2.
After some practice and getting used to, this mod really allows for some AWESOME screenshots. I get really good angles and closups for picture taking.

One of my new favorites are the mural sets put together by Hafise25. You can find 'em all here! I'm generally not a big fan of real backgrounds in sim pics, but I was able to make a few of these work really nicely in the Cutest Toddler contest and I really appreciate them. :rofl:

windkeeper of TheSimsResource - she has a lot of great stuff but these two are my favorites for contest stuff.

Custom Built Aquarium Superset



Practical Minilights - Can be placed overhead or conveniently under items so your shots are well-lit.
