New Year! New Feature!To start off the new year, I thought a new feature was in order.New Year! New Feature!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Lately, I have been struggling to find inspiration of what to photograph. One day it dawned on me to try photographing one of my other great passions. Board games. Here is a small collection of the photographs I took while playing Monopoly, Carcassonne, and Scrabble. I own many other board games and the next one I am planning to photograph is a good game of Settlers of Catan. My disclaimer for you is that all of these photographs are real games played, I did not set up the game how I would of liked, but rather I played just for fun with my family and friends. Please enjoy!
If you have any suggestions of what I should photograph next, please feel to send me a note or reply in this message. I would love to hear some feedback.
Please enjoy this beautiful collection of photographs.

In fact all these play with words (past journals and so on...) have more mean to me while I was reading texts about Wittgenstein who explore origins of language, excistence...)

Defining Street Photography
by Dave Beckerman
Most types of photography can be easily defined by their subjects. A wedding photographer takes pictures of weddings. A portrait photographer poses someone and takes their picture. The nature photographer covers a wide area, but it is easy to categorize.
Street photography is difficult to define because it can encompass just about any subject.
If I were to ask you to name a few famous street photographers, you might pick, Garry Winnograd, Henri Cartier-Bresson, or maybe Robert Frank. But if I asked you to define street photography that would be more difficult. You might say that street photography is candid pictures of strangers on the street. That might be a good start, but it doesn't really

How to improve your skills in close-up-photographySince many people asked me how I take my pictures and why they are so "special", I would like to tell you how I manage things when I take pictures.How to improve your skills in close-up-photography2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I. Finding the location
When I go outside to take pictures of nature, I do barely have any concepts in my mind. I just go and let nature inspire me. The first important step is finding a location.It is not that difficult to find an interesting background. I personally do prefer backgrounds which are not monochrome. Many shades of light (light and dark contrasts or different colors) make your picture interesting, no matter if the final result will be monochrome or colorful in the end.I look out for locations where not many people are. Like a big meadow in front of a house or a field or forests. (Forests do have the special plus that it does almost always have different light shadings I mentioned in 2).
II. Know your possibilities!
You have found your favourite location? Great! Many people do the mistake to
Photography Troubleshooting:How to Photograph FoodMany of us lament about a lack of subjects to Photograph - and almost just as many of us create something on a daily basis that with a bit of presentation, can look like a masterpiece. Food is one of the most accessible Photographic subjects and if you've no idea where to start, hopefully this article will give you a few pointers. Firstly, you don't need an expensive D-SLR in order to capture some of the food masterpieces you see around.Photography Troubleshooting:How to Photograph Food2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The above was taken with a Sony Cybershot which is a good quality point and shoot camera. As you can see, the focus is crisp, the quality is good and the lighting is adequate. It works well - and it's easy enough to achieve whether you have a D-SLR or something smaller.
Before you start cooking - get prepared. It's the simplest easiest thing to say and you'll likely roll your eyes at such a mundane instruction but there have been many times when I've found mysel

I will have to completely reorganise my breakfast schedule because of some overzealous admin. Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.
My breakfast should look like this:

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

What do we need to shoot a Street picture?
1. A camera
Whatever kind of a camera is good. Either it is a ridiculously expensive rangefinder or an unbelievably cheap point and shoot compact. Either it shoots digital or it shoots film. Either it weighs a ton or it weighs few grams. ANY camera is fine as long as you have it with you. The most expensive rangefinder or SLR is completely useless if it's been left at home! So...Carry a camera. Always.
2. A public place
This can be out in the streets or at the beach or inside a hotel's lounge or in a diner place or inside a supermarket or a mall or a school or whatever PUBLIC place. This public place must be visible in our picture. And things must be happening in this public place.

Street Photography for experts
just some thoughtsPhotography has changed me as a person completely. I have never had plans or dreams to become a "real" photographer. When I first took a quite primitive camera in my hands it felt like magic. The magic device that captures essences of moments. Yet, then I did not understand, that there is much more magic to it than meets the eye. I thought it all was in the rules, techniques and endless pricy gear I spent my last money on. And this fresh green leaf me was vortexed straight into the industry. My first attempt in 2007 was short lived, and I made enemies. That happened because I stood for something that was important for me. Now when I look back, I have no regrets and I'm even proud of myself. Well, I could have swallowed my pride and slowly start climbing the ladder. My new dream was crashed and I was stuck in a lovely but extremely boring job. Pursuing the career I had a degree for, realizing that I will never ever be able to put my effort into something creative. I felt such an itch, bjust some thoughts11 months ago in Personal More Like This
