SE Asia you so niceee!My time here in Asia is about to end, it saddens me down to the bone. But I tell myself that I'll return, I must, it's part of me now. Though, I'm an outsider here and will always be, I'm confortable with that, unlike my home country, Guatemala, where I'm treaded as an outsider even though I'm part of it. That aside, these 5 months have been an education to my photography, from the batu caves of Malaysia to the summit of Agung and into the temple scapes of Bagan and Angkor, I've been incredibly lucky to not just travel to these places but to be educated in photography in the most incredible places of the world.SE Asia you so niceee!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

My macro gear setupI usually get asked what's that "flash modifier made with an orange juice package" I use for my macro photography. Well I must recognise that in fact it is not an orange juice package but an Iced Tea package, sorry for that . What I try with it is to extend the range of my flash, to be able to light up anything right in front of my lens and from above. I also added a piece of foam that works as a diffuser, although it didn't worked very fine. Lately I found a bag of some kind of cloth that really diffuses the light of the flash.My macro gear setup1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I took the idea from this tutorial by Jules1983 . You can also find an interesting setup in melvynyeo's blog here: http://melvyn-yeo.blogspot.com.es/p/about-me.html, just scroll down a bit.
All you have to do is to cut any kind of package like the one in the images below, the hole at the bottom is to insert the flash, so it must bit the exact size of it not to loose any light from there. The trick is that thi

Of course it's one thing to be an artist and to want to communicate with pictures, but quite another to follow through on that commitment. That's what this lesson is about, before we actually begin learning to see. Becoming an artist is about that moment you realized the urge to scribble and make pictures was not going to leave you alone. When you decided to stop looking at pictures and begin making them yourself. When you began to go to bed later and later because you couldn't put your brushes away. When you began to dream of your next drawing. Becoming an artist is a hugely transformative decision, which most of you have already made. It removes you from the common flow of humanity, gives you a reason to live, a sense of completeness and a desire to improve. Suddenly you begin to think about what you look at. I suspect you are now so used to it, you have forgotten how rare this way of looking at the world really is. But it is different fr

A year of surprisesOh, what a year this has been.A year of surprises4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The latest is that it seems that our would-be buyers got their mortgage application declined two days ago, a week and a half before they were supposed to close. So we're not quite sure what we're up to now, other than rearranging things so we can move boxes out of the main living areas and make the place presentable for putting back on the market.
Or, so we think right now. That could all change tomorrow or the next day. Life is full of surprises.
On the other hand, I said last year that all I wanted for Christmas 2011 was my sister-in-law, Shirlee, still alive. When we were out there for Thanksgiving, she was looking remarkably healthy for someone who had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two years prior.
So, all in all, it's been a very good year. Thanks be to God.
I wish you all a blessed and prosperous 2012. Thanks for helping make dA the crazy wonderful place it it.

Food Photography - back to basicsFood is a necessity for daily life and good health (the right kinds anyway), but food is also fast becoming something of an Art as well as many turn to their cameras once a mammoth baking session is over and capture the delightful dishes in attractive and alluring ways. Since the beginnings of Still Life Photography, food has been a subject and whilst the topic has remained the same - methods, equipment and ease have changed in varying degrees across the years. Food Photography is still a genre that is vastly overlooked and majorly underrated in the art world.Food Photography - back to basics3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It all began with Still Life Paintings back in the 17th Century. They were as far from commercial as a style could get and certainly weren't created with selling in mind. However the skill and main aspects that realism painters took back in the 17th Century are kept close to the hearts of Food Photographers today as they grip onto Realism, effects of light, composition and arrangement. Props have always been an important part of

Why Paint Missing Children?A little girl I knew was abducted.Why Paint Missing Children?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was very affected emotionally, and when I looked around my home town in the following days, I finally noticed all of the little fliers asking for help finding missing children. ( In America there are 1,500 missing child cases open every day. The fliers are often printed on the backs of coupons and are distributed as junk-mail.)
I just began saving the fliers, and after a year had a drawer full of them: Disposable mailers with tiny monochrome photos of missing children. It didn't seem right that these faces were so small and bland.
One night, out of nowhere, I was inspired to paint a full color portrait from one of the cards. As an artist, the question was this: How does a person paint a portrait of a missing child? I could not just approach it like an illustration. I could not just go about it as if it were a polite painting.
I began by putting away my brushes. They were too smooth. Too pretty. Too controllable. Instead, I began using palette knives
Famous Photographs: The Afghan GirlIf you run a google search on what are the top famous Photographs of all time, The Afghan Girl is sure to appear. She is truly a face from History and one that many across the globe have tried to capture within others time and time again. But what exactly has made this image and its photographer so captivating?Famous Photographs: The Afghan Girl3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Source: Daily Mail/National Geographic/Steve McCurry
Eyes, they say, are the window to the soul. And capturing such a piercing and expressive look in a photograph is a highly sought after skill. The Afghan Girl exhibits suspense, suspicion and a sense of distrust at the person behind the lens, she gives off an air of maturity, a foreboding feeling - a vulnerability behind years of strength. That, is what makes her so captivating.

“See a penny pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck!”
It doesn’t matter that I’m not a little kid, I still pick up pennies for luck when I see them. Though they have to be heads-up, of course. I also refuse to walk under ladders, I don’t open umbrellas indoors, and I try my best to avoid cracks in the sidewalk. It might be silly superstition, or maybe there’s something more to it.
What ever you believe, cultures and countries around the world and throughout time have decided that different symbols, animals, and events represent good luck.
Check out some of our favorite signs of good luck below!
I want to hear from you!
How did these symbols get their meaning?
Do you believe in good luck and bad luck?
Learning: 1. Introduction1. IntroductionLearning: 1. Introduction5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anybody can be an artist. These days there are no barriers to enter this field of work, no critical, educational, cultural, or economic requirements. In our modern way of thinking, anything can be art, and anyone who creates art is, must be, an artist. To me that makes perfect sense. We are a wonderfully creative species, monkeys who like to make things. To create something new out of raw materials is one of the chiefest joys of being born human, and that process of creation is worth sharing, celebrating and dignifying with a special, wonderful word: "art".
There is a smaller group of monkey-makers who take special pleasure in making pictures of things. I'm one of those, and I suspect you are too. We're the ones who scrawled on walls with crayons, doodled in textbooks, couldn't learn a formula without a diagram, and who never seemed to have enough pencils or paper close at hand. While other kids scribbled poems in notebooks, or ran faster th
