Best of April 2013Here are some of the best pictures I found in April, 2013. They do not appear in my Square-features, that's why I do a monthly feature for all those great artists on deviantART who submitted no-square pictures. Enjoy!Best of April 20132 years ago in Art Features More Like This

The best thing I have ever readThe best thing I have ever read as it relates to photography. Period. Bar none. http://guytal.com/wordpress/2011/12/the-value-and-futility-of-critique/ Think I am kidding? I'm not. It says it all completely. A little excerpt:The best thing I have ever read3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Most mature and accomplished artists who embraced their own creativity no longer have much use for critique. From that point on, the critic is but a voice representing the tastes of others, who may or may not understand the work, and whose opinion is not likely to make an impact on the artist's direction. The exception, perhaps, is when the artist considers the critic a better artist than they are."
Photography quote of the day? (unrelated to the above but perhaps the other best thing i have ever read as it relates to photography) Sure why not, catch---
""I am not interested in showing my work to photographers any more, but to people outside the photo-clique. My pictures are not escapes from reality, but a contemplation of reality, so that I can e

I am sure some of you are chomping at the bit at having it aren't you? Well, I am here to tell you don't. I am also here to educate you WHY you shouldn't.

The DA camera bag http://deviantwear.deviantart.com/journal/dA-PRO-Camera-Bag-214235320?utm_source=elnino&utm_medium=messagecenter&utm_campaign=052412_RET_CameraBag&utm_term=button Notice anything? How about the sheer lack of size for a start. In the past people with dslr's like Nikon d300s, Canon 7D's etc couldn't get their camera to fit inside it, it was simply to small of a bag. Heck, I even know a few folks who had d70s and d80s who couldn't fit their camera inside. While the ad says "now larger", it doesn't exactly say HOW MUCH larger and that means that you are taking a risk. Now let's really get down to the reality of the situation.
It is, for all intents and p
My eyes are bleedingWoke up, got coffee, checked email and G+, came here, looked at the first 2 pages of DA and my eyes completely bled. No less than 5 stolen pieces of art. Five. Seriously DA, get your ass together. Enough with the "needs third party" bullshit that is needed for removing stolen art. Hire more staff and actually be responsible. As much as I can't stand SOPA, I have to admit, maybe it's the best damn thing could happen to a website like this one.My eyes are bleeding3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Artists That Inspire Me 19Welcome to all reading this journal my regular feature of the work of others.Artists That Inspire Me 191 year ago in Personal More Like This
Below are the artists whose work has inspired me since my last journal entry. The selections made by no means cover everyone that deserves to be here. In time many many more will follow, as with each passing week I discover so many more talented creative people on here, that one journal entry could never do them all justice. So many of you out there are producing work that leaves me in awe, and it would be unfair of me not to acknowledge the creators of work that has caught my eye and imagination. This journal features some of the more recent works that have stopped me in my tracks. They are presented in no particular order, they are simply a selection that I believe need to be seen and acknowledged by others for their beauty, artistry and ability. I would encourage you all to visit each artist featured as I truly believe that in the DA community we learn so much from each other.
There will be more features t

Crawford Market, Mumbai, Maharashtra - 1993. © Raghubir Singh
Born in Jaipur, India, Singh attended St. Xavier's School school and it was here that he discovered Cartier-Bresson's
little-known book, Beautiful Jaipur, published in 1949, which inspired his interest in photography.
Later on after a year of studying arts at The Hindu College in New Delhi, Raghubir decided to drop out.
Now, with time on his hands, he began taking photographs using a camera
his brother, Pratap Singh had brought for him from Hong Kong.

Friday Favorites -- December #20This week's theme is "Family". Each of these artworks was chosen by one of our admins, who also gave a brief explanation of how these artworks fit the theme for this week.Friday Favorites -- December #202 years ago in Personal More Like This
"This piece shows that family isn't just with your blood relatives but with your close friends and with the people you're most comfortable with."
"This portrays 'Family' really well. While the people that he artist drew aren't necessarily family, It portrays the feeling of togetherness and the fact that you don't have to see someone in person to be close to them."
"This artwork shows an interesting portrayal of what a family can be like. Even though each of the wolves have their differences, they all stick together, and even death cannot separate them."
"This piece is not only extremely well done in both the color scheme and overall feeling to it, but it also conveys the idea
