8 Legal Cases Every Photographer Should KnowSource: http://petapixel.com/2014/10/28/8-legal-cases-every-photographer-know/8 Legal Cases Every Photographer Should Know2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Understanding your legal rights as a photographer can often be confusing and overwhelming. From copyright infringement to fair use to DMCA, there are a number of legal concepts that every photographer should be familiar with. Here are eight important legal cases that are illustrative of these concepts and the importance of registering your copyright.
1. Andrew Paul Leonard v Stemtech Health Sciences, Inc
Key concept: Copyright infringement and registration
Microphotography expert Andrew Paul Leonard’s photographs of bone marrow stem cells were stolen and used on the Stemtech website and other marketing materials.
The court ruled in Leonard’s favor for copyright infringement awarding him $1.6m in actual damages. However, he was denied statutory damages because he didn’t register his images until after the infringement occurred.
2. Nussenzweig v DiCorcia
Key concepts: Right of Privacy/Publici

Inkscape 0.91 About Screen Contest!UPDATE: Please make sure your SVG is posted online as well by the deadline. If you put in the time and effort to enter the contest it would be a sad thing to have your entry get disqualified over. There are entries which currently do not have the SVG posted.Inkscape 0.91 About Screen Contest!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's about that time again as we near the release of 0.91! The Inkscape team and community is winding down development and preparing to release Inkscape 0.91. Given that we will be releasing a new version of Inkscape, we need to have a new About Screen done.
Our goal is to show off what the new version of Inkscape can do in an artistic manner.
We don't have a particular theme, but since our goal was for refactoring code and internals maybe that could inspire.
You should use a current nightly build or a pre-release build.
The contest will run from September 1, 2014 - October 1, 2014.
The canvas dimensions must be 750x625 px / 600x500 p

Writing Effective DialogueWe've all struggled through figuring out how to write dialogue that not only gets the information out there, but also helps build characters or advance the plot. There are tons of books and blogs out there on the topic, too. But just reading about it doesn't do much good if we're not ready to try it out. Give it a go and see what other people think. But let's start with the basics.Writing Effective Dialogue3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is Effective Dialogue?
Dialogue that's written well will reveal character traits, add to the tension and suspense, helps cut down on text walls of description and of course, advances your plot. One of the most important things to keep in mind when you're writing dialogue is that in fiction, your reader doesn't want to read all the mundane things we say on a regular basis. So if it's not moving the plot or adding to your character's personality, you should think about cutting it completely.
What do I mean by reveals character traits?

Don't forget to check the =3D Week Announcement= regularly for upcoming events and contests this week, we've got a lot on!
3D Printing is a way of converting your 3D models into physical real-world objects. It's exciting because most of a 3D artist's life is spent working on things that are never tangible and traditionally haven't existed in the real world, until recently.
Previously, a process called milling has been used to create models of computer objects, This is somewhat like sculpting done by the computer, where you start with a solid mass and cut bits away until you're left with your model! This process is called subtractive printing, because you start with a lot of material, and get rid of bits of it until you're left with your 3D object.
3D printing is an additive process. This mea

At deviantART, we have spent the past 11 years building a place where artists can share and discuss their work and get inspired by the work of their contemporaries. A noble cause, for certain, but we would like to be so much more to our beloved community of brilliant creatives. Starting today, deviantART will also be a means of inspiration in an entirely new way with financial support for art.
On 3 month cycles, deviantART will accept applications from artists seeking to fund art-related projects. A panel called the Creative Grants Board will pick those projects that they believe will benefit particularly from a Grant and give those artists the support they need to make it happen. The lucky few who are chosen to receive Grants will also be given a beautiful accolade on their deviantART Profile Page to celebrate their succes

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
