How They Did It: The Story Behind the ShotHTDI:TSBTS aims to guide emerging photographers by showcasing tips, techniques, and stories generously shared by some of dA's most accomplished Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature artists. At the same time, we hope to shed light on the often overlooked amount of effort that is required to create striking images like these. Making a great photograph takes time, planning, a creative eye, and solid photography skills. What happens behind the lens is just as important as the final product!How They Did It: The Story Behind the Shot3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am sure many of you have been told "Great photo! You must have an awesome camera!" or "Wow, you sure were lucky to get that shot!" While a "good camera" and "luck" are small ingredients when creating a visual feast, we photographers would like to remind everyone that technical competency, determination, patience, and creative vision are the real meat and potatoes of any tasty photo.

A few to watch...I don't know why, but every time I go to do a feature it seems my favourites folder throws a hissy fit and refuses to load. I tried sweet talking it and even bribing it with beer but it refused to cooperate!A few to watch...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What to do... only a few hours to go til my sub expires again, I promised Anoya to do some features and I can't access my favourites.... lame!
Change of plan I guess... I've decided instead to compile a list of landscape/nature photographers for you all to check out. The photographers featured are all ones I watch and who consistently impress with their work. I honestly don't think you'd go far wrong if you blitzed through the list and hit "watch" for all of them, it's all quality stuff! What's the worst that could happen... you don't like a couple of images that come into your message centre? Click unwatch... easy
Most of you who've been here a while probably already know most of these, but hopefully this proves to be a useful little selection for those newer to the site.

I give these exclusive actions away for free to 10 random artists.
The only thing you need to do is leave a feedback (comment, fav) at this deviation so I now you are interested. I pick 10 comments which I find "notable". You may also choose one of my other exclusive actions in this folder: http://lieveheersbeestje.deviantart.com/gallery/38582019 if you like those more.
But I decided to let everyone who commented to pick one exclusive action from this folder: http://lieveheersbeestje.deviantart.com/gallery/38582019 ♥ ♥ (I couldn't choose, because all the comments where so nice) Just send me a not which action you want and I give you a free download link!!!

37 Practices of Bodhisattva by Shantideva37 Practices Of Bodhisattva37 Practices of Bodhisattva by Shantideva2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(people who practice Dhamma to be Samma SamBuddha like Sakyamuni Buddha)
You who see that experience has no coming or going,
Yet pour your energy solely into helping beings,
My excellent teachers and Lord All Seeing,
I humbly and constantly honor with my body, speech, and mind.
The fully awake, the buddhas, source of joy and well-being,
All come from integrating the noble Way.
Because integration depends on your knowing how to practice,
I will explain the practice of all bodhisattvas.
Right now, you have a good boat, fully equipped and available (to be in human form)— hard to find.
To free others and you from the sea of samsara,
Day and night, fully alert and present,
Study, reflect, and meditate — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.
Attraction to those close to you catches you in its currents;
Aversion to those who oppose you burns inside;
Indifference that ignores what needs to be done is a black hole.

deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.comIt recently came to our attention that a website called Art4Love.com was offering prints for sale, some based off of deviations also found on deviantART.com (and perhaps other works by artists not on deviantART). Art4Love.com is currently offline, but was up long enough to make some artists very understandably upset, as neither the artists (we are told) nor deviantART ever gave permission for Art4Love.com to sell these prints.deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.com3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We've been tracking the exchanges of comments and journals about all possible infringing activity and are ready to provide information from our side that would help legal action that any of the affected artists decide to bring. We will also fully cooperate with any government agency that may become involved because of consumer complaints against this apparently infringing website and the people running it. We would also happily cooperate with any possible fraud investigations.

Featured Prints Artist: Stanley Lau
Stanley Lau a.k.a. Artgerm is a busy child as an illustrator, designer, concept artist and art director. Born and bred in Hong Kong, he soaked up his creativity and interest in arts early on and trained his artistic skills and knowledge ever since in a never-ending process. Filled with creative juices to the top of his head, Stanley is active all day with various projects at his Imaginary Friends Studios designing art and concepts for computer and card games companies, animation houses or comic publishers. He is also founder of his own advertising & design agency and a t-shirt label, and when Stanley is not working on any of these, he can be found playing video games across many platforms or the occasional karaoke session. We are proud to feature Artgerm as our Prints Artist of the Month in a very interesting interview.

Nature and landscape photographer TRBPhotographyLLC has joined in the fun and I am showing of his gear bag this week. Here is what he has to show:
I’ll start left to right front row
1. Canon 430EX II TTL show mount flash (just depends of if I’m shooting nature or people – nature no people yes )
2. Canon EF 24-105 f4L IS USM (I use this lens A Lot! Both in my portrait work and nature. I’ve found the IS extremely handy)
3. Canon 70-200 F4L USM ( my lest used lens)
4. Canon 17-40 f4L USM (my workhorse nature lens, because of its clarity and wide angles)
5. A variety of size rings for my Cokin “P” style holder
6. Singh Ray 3 stop soft grad.
7. Cokin ND4 and ND8 Neutral Density filters. ( I don’t use these much at all anymore but I’m so used to them being in my bag )

So, hopefully, you'll be seeing more work coming in from me. Especially since I'm now living on-campus at Duke University -- THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS PRETTY MUCH EVER. Really. You can't compete with Gothic architecture and giant trees.
I also recently bought Photoshop CS6, so I'm all set on that end too!
I'm looking forward to starting to photograph again!
