Hopefully that headache goes away Samoht.

-Bshag- when you take a picture of them do they count as "white roses"? Sorry I keep asking that question but I would like a very good straight up answer. It's bothering me that I've looked all over and have had no luck in finding anything close to "White Roses".

Sorry Livvie, I do a lot of landscaping and when the description of while roses came up as white and manicured that's the only thing that came to mind.  The white that samoht meant actually is pink roses. :-\  I haven't tried to photograph "white roses" yet, but I'll try both to see what happens.

I thought the roses above were called Semi-Roses? I may have made a mistake, I am not sure now though? They do look white though.

EDIT:

I was correct that the rose in picture is the White Rose, it is called Semi Rose too.

While others argue white roses are not truly roses at all...

I bought a camera with buydebug and the camera does identify the rose bush as a White Rose.

Ok, I'll jump on quickly and try again before I go back to my BBII challenge. :) Thank you all so much for the help! I'm very happy that I probably just skipped over them or just missed them because they were too close to a red rose bush. :)

This photography thing seems interesting. I think I'll try it soon, but my Sim is now working on painting, guitar, and writing novels, so I think it'll be very hard for her to make her start working on an additional art!

For kitchen kitsch (someone asked about it a few pages back) the coffee machine did it for me :)
The Semi Roses are the White Roses; and for the other rare grapevine, if you go to a house called The Old Nectary in France they are lots of them there. The easiest way to find the Old Nectary (I'm hopeless giving directions in real life; lord knows what would happen if I tried doing it in the Sims!) is to use the phone to purchase holiday home then just scan the map to find the nectary. It's along the river bank(ish).
A quick question...for the Nectar Rack does it need to be the most expensive one as it's part of the Best in Class collection? I'd already bought the most expensive one anyway because I wanted to age nectar, but I just wondered.
Grr Argh!

I am having trouble completing collections, because the camera doesn't recognise what it's taking a photo of. I have taken many pictures of the dropa stone collection for instance, but it does not come up as completed in the collection list. I also took a picture of smoky quartz - that's all that was in the shot - and it name it 'untitled' and did not recognise that it was of quartz, as needed in the collection. It's quite frustrating. I have taken pictures of the complete chinese vases set, not sure if that's supposed to be part of a collection or not, but it called it sarcophagus. There was a sarcophagus in the room, but not in the shot. I've noticed that below the shot while you're positioning it, it says what the shot will be called/recognised as in green, but I can't get the correct label if I try to adjust the shot.

I'm having a lot of the same problems, Pallyndrome.  I'm playing my very first photography sim trying to distract myself while waiting for ambitions and so far it's just plain frustrating.  His LTW is to have a gallary of photographs worth 25,000 and my thought is, where am I gonna hang all those!  So far my most valuable photo was worth around $500.  I'm just about ready to throw in the towel.

To be totally honest, I like to create families with more than one person for my photographer, but I don't make them related, because if you go to China you can have two people become lovers and kiss while somewhere in China and as long as you catch the right area on the camera (like sometimes it will have the "lovers at night" option or something) then you can always kick the two people you had in there or move your Sim out. Either way, just make a couple, move your Sim in with them like an exchange program and what not and move them out after a vacation or something. That's what I've always done. I hope this makes sense because I feel like I've kind of rambled a bit, yet anyways, I hope that helps.

Yes thanks it does help. I'll get one of my other sims to flirt with a local I think. Why didn't I think of that? :)

Let me know if it works, sometimes it just comes up as "my friends" or "two Sims" which gets annoying as well. :/ Or even "Get a Room" or "Lovers at Night" so good luck!

I'm having a slight problem with my sims photography skill. He gets a want which is to make $1000 from selling photographs, when you hover over it, it tells you how much you have made 0/1000 but it never seems to go above 0 not even when I have sold $1700 worth of photo's.

Just wonder if any one else has had a similar problem?

But can't you just have two lovers already in your family when trying this out? Or does the sims on the photo have to be people living in the foreign country?

How I got the "Lovers in China" Photo: my sim befriended a local, visited his house and asked if he could spend the night. After the local and his wife went to bed, my sim took a picture of them sleeping (kinda creepy if someone did that in real life lol) and voila! I also followed this method in Egypt and probably in France, too, but that I can't remember.

When they get the wish to make a certain amount from selling something, it starts from when you accept the wish, so anything they have already sold does not count. Could that have been it, or are you saying that you sold photos after locking in the want and they still don't add to the tally?

There was a new item added to (I believe) the "Home Sweet Home" collection.  Of COURSE it is bugged, and just has a blank space for the name.  By pure luck I had my camera pointing at a hamper, and the title below the picture just said "" (Home Sweet Home) instead of, for example, "A Couch" (Home Sweet Home).  I snapped it, and sure enough, the hamper has been added to the collection.

Why doesn't this surprise me? I guarantee there will never be a time when NOTHING is bugged in the photography skill.

I am having the same problem with my photos not going towards my wishes.

I wonder if this is some sort of bug.

Welcome to our Forum, Alantra!

What exactly is happening with your photography wishes?  Are you certain that you're actually capturing the object of the wish?  The camera viewfinder can be tricky and even when you think you have a particular object centered, it won't count unless the name of that object is also showing up in the viewfinder.

The wish of make 1000 in photos (can't remember the exact wording) comes up.  It has the counter 0/1000 on it.  I sell photos and my skill goes up and my money towads next level goes up, but the wish counter says 0/1000.

I have also gotten the " " from the home sweet home collection, but got it taking a photo of the crib.  I still haven't figured out "Baby Stuff".  For the Bathroom Stuff I photographed the towel bar (the one that looks like it has two pairs of towels hanging from it) though it's possible the game read the toilet and toilet paper roll in the same shot.  "Kitchen Kitch" I got a shot of the food processor and that one was in the bag. 

Other tips:  If you get the ghosts as they start to emerge from their gravestones, often you can get two in the same shot for "A Ghostly Problem".

Since I've seem a few posts about the flower ones, Sunflower is rather simple if you go to the house on the corner in France that has all the sunflowers in the yard.  You don't need to own it, just stand outside the fence and snap away.  There's a spot in France to pick up "White Roses as well, though I can't recall precisely where that was.  If you don't want to travel and are playing in SV, there's a house to the right of the graveyard (standing in front of the masoleum), just aim toward it and pan around a bit and you should get it.

Also, some people had difficulty with the theatre.  I play SV mostly, and stood technically off the lot to get that one, but just barely in the road.  It popped up after a few tries.

I hope some of this helps!

I'm going to have to revive this thread, sorry, but I've only just started using the photography skill.  That's what playing the challenges does for you, makes you use things you haven't tried before  :)

I would like to know if anyone knows what the 'Home Décor' photo in the 'Home Sweet Home' collection should contain. I've tried loads of things but none of them work.  I've tried different combinations of decorations on walls, floor etc. but they seem to come up 'object' or even 'nice garden' (I was trying plants as decorations).

Hope someone can help.
