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 Shot4 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.

FeaturesHello allFeatures3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it's been a very windy last couple of days here in Philly, Hurricane Sandy passed us by fortunately and we didn't even get any power outages. Looking at the news, New Jersey and NYC got hit hard so I hope everyone there is safe and well!!!!
I haven't taken any new photos recently, I still have quite a lot to go through from the past year or so (as I had been so unproductive going through them all). I will hopefully take some over the next month or so, although the best of autumn will most likely of passed by which is a shame.
Now onto the features!!!!!!
Featured Artist: FlorentCourty I absolutely love his work, stunning nature, beautifully captured!!!!
Other lovely work I have over the past couple of weeks!!!

How did you find deviantART?
About a year and a half ago I was fascinated by art. I searched and searched for a website -- a community -- that took interest in art like myself. I finally found DeviantART.
What did you love about the site/what stood out?
The diversity of the different kinds of art on the website amazed me along with the complexity (As I have a liking for complex networks).
What do you aim to do in the deviantART community?
I am to help out as much as I can around DA, encouraging deviants, donating points, and

Artists That Inspire Me 12Welcome to all reading this journal my regular feature of the work of others.Artists That Inspire Me 123 years 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.
