Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday
Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETsIn this week's Site Update, we don't have any publicly visible changes, as our Devious Technology (dT), Product, and Product Marketing teams are all still at a staff retreat!Site Update: Staff Retreat, .Art, deviantMEETs3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At the beginning of the week, the dT team worked on improving our internal development tools to increase efficiency. Then, on Wednesday, we let any staff members at the retreat pitch fun and exciting ideas for deviantART features that could be built in two days. After each feature idea was pitched, everyone from dT chose which projects they'd like to work on. Throughout the year, engineers primarily work on projects that are assigned to them, so sometimes it's important to turn the tables and let them choose projects in which they're most passionate and excited about.
The purpose of these two-day "hackathons" is to build and demonstrate a proofs of con

Architecture Photography: Introduction
Welcome to the projecteducate Architecture Photography Week!
Boy oh boy! I've been preparing this for a few weeks now so I gathered quite a few articles for you guys! To begin with, I will introduce you to the Architecture Photography Gallery on deviantART with all its sub-categories. Then we'll move on to the basics in Architecture Photography in order to help you take successful photographs. We will also see some of the trends around the Gallery with inspiring examples, just to give you a taste of what you can do and encourage you to give it a try as well!
Along with all these articles, I've also prepared interviews with remarkable architecture photographers within the community, but also outside deviantART! I hope you'll enjoy to get to know these people better.
There is an Architecture Photography Critique Event plan

“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
This week I spied an awesome topic in georgewjohnson's journal and knew instantly that it was what I would talk about for edition twenty eight. "Underground train system bosses are set to ban all photos under new proposals that have angered photographers.." You can read the full article for yourself here but I would love to get some discussion going amongst us all as to whether or not the proposed ban would effect you. I'm personally quite pleased that the latest articles report a U-turn in the proposals so it doesn't look
#S17 ART: What is it good for?I don’t know if everyone is aware of it but DeviantART have been petitioning ICANN so they can manage the domain dotART. This journal isn’t about that but it was something that inspired me to finally put some of my thoughts down about something that is happening to the Arts whose consequences are far greater.#S17 ART: What is it good for?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Spyed’s journals on the subject along with a link to sign the petition are below;
I signed and endorsed their application not because someone should control the domain but more because it is going to be assigned to some group or other and if that’s so then DeviantART seem the best candidate for the job. Last thi
The Traditional Through a Cracked PrismCreating art for those who feel a real resonance with traditional anchoring fairy tales, ~cidaq also draws in those who enjoy darker tales of mystery and films noir.

cidaq’s paintings are unique and instantly identifiable as hers —
Even though at first glance one might think them antique illustrations preserved from century-old
products advertisements or children’s books. But one is drawn to look closer and see that a very

as well as the skilled technique and composition are solidly anchored in the traditional, but the

Lucifer - The Fallen by *RainerKalwitz
Marble, Granite, Bronze, Silver, Gold!
Early statuary depicted one’s god’s, and since the medium is
as much the message as the visual message itself – the medium had
to proclaim: This god is as forever lasting as this stone that His
rendering is hewn out of! But all that is solid eventually melts
away into the air, even the most powerful ancient gods and kings –
As the poet Shelley so poignantly noted in Ozymandias.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock’d them and the
Homophobia is f**king gay.I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.Homophobia is f**king gay.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom

About Project Porkchop
The DeviantArt Experience can sometimes quickly become the quintessential example of that most frustrating problem: too much of a good thing.

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Nature’s “Show Fish”
Koi are those “giant goldfish” you see in fancy little ponds outside stylish people’s homes. Only, though both are varieties of carp, koi and goldfish are only distant relatives. Koi are bred for beauty, exhibiting a wide variety of colorations in distinct patterns and “scalations.” They are “ornamental” rather than edible fish. They are living abstract artworks in motion, endlessly gliding in and out of new compositions for their watery “canvas.”
