Street, children, is a state of mind: what defines street photography is not the subject, but the 'forma mentis' of the photographer.
Street photography is a way to look at the ordinary and see something special or unusual in it, to look at everyday situations and find a decisive moment in them, to look at candid happenings and see iconic interactions between people and surroundings in them.
The iN-PUBLiC | Manifesto, one of the most representative sites about street photography in the world, states that "all the photographers featured there have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday life and to capture the moment".
The subject of a street photo is not necessarily interesting, unusual, unseen in itself, but its strenght comes from the NARRATIVE CONSTRUCTION that the photographer is able to create around the subject. The way the photographer presents it,
PE Street Photography FAQSTREET PHOTOGRAPHY FAQPE Street Photography FAQ2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is street photography?
Ha! You didn't read my previous journals, did you?
Street photography is "un-posed, un-staged photography which captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings".
Street photography is an eye focused on the ordinary, on the every day life. Its interest is in capturing every day moments and situations that filtered through the sensitivity, vision, personality of the photographer are able to pass emotions and sensations to the viewer.
Moments can be of every kind: ironic, sad, melancholic, surreal, wry, tender, beautiful, poetic, destabilizing, documentary. They all show aspects of life.
You can read my take on it here: Street, children, is a state of mind

The Street Photography of Chris Weeks
It was only after many long frustrating hours of trying to describe what’s so special about the photographs of cweeks...
That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

I want you all to know that I have read every single message you have sent, but naturally due to the magnitude, there is no way I could write back to everyone. So I just want to say thanks here...again, to everyone on dA, everyone on EqD, the Vancouver Brony group, and to all my other friends who made me feel so special on my birthday.
My birthday is now over...so please...no more messages!...lol

The #165 XNALara/XPS release
4 years ago 20. Feb. 2009, XNALara version 1.0 was born,
developed by :icondusanpavlicek:, the original creator of XNALara.
Now, 164 versions later http://xnalara.home-forum.com/t170-xnalara-xna-posing-studio-latest-version , XNALara/XPS 10.9.5 will support Speech Bubbles
I know it would be a lot of work, with a new menu needed, etc - so I don't hold my breath ! But it would beat having to save each image and load them into a tool like Photoshop or Movie-maker to add the subtitles...
... We love a XPS that would give more support to story-tellers. You too? ...

Singing 'Aniron' Acapella and a featureHellooooo my lovelies,Singing 'Aniron' Acapella and a feature2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For Xmas I got a usb vocal recording mic and I thought I should test it out... so I did.... this is my attempt at the song Aniron from The Fellowship of the Ring.
I recorded myself doing 9 separate harmonies using garageband and my usb recording mic and layered the multi-track to achieve the final sound.... It was also spontaneous... no prior practice, so I'm aware of mistakes.
Also, I'm such a fidget.
Now I want to do a version of The Misty Mountains song .... but my voice isn't deep and dwarven and manly... (or is that dwarvely?) so I may just have to do a feminine version.... or work on my bass baritone.
Have a feature:

1. Saving your .psd with all layers hidden makes a smaller file compared to saving it with all layers visible.
2. You can use the Crop Tool to quickly increase the canvas size of an image by holding down Ctrl + Alt whilst dragging the Crop Tool outside the current canvas.
3. If you want to see only one of your layers at a time, hold down Alt whilst clicking the eye icon of the layer. (do it again to show all layers again)
4. Holding down Alt while in a dialog box turns the Cancel button into a Reset button, so you can reset the values back to default.
5. If you want to just quickly check a very heavy .psd file, you can hold down Shift + Alt while clicking the Open button. This way Photoshop will open a flattened version of the file.
6. You can change the gray background that surrounds your image with the Paint Bucket Tool, just hold down Shift and make click on the background.
7. Not a very unknown tip, but if y
