How They Did It: The Story Behind the Shot V3HTDI: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 Shot V34 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!"

GrowthI want to share something which I wrote with you all over on my G+ yesterday titled "Frustrations with photography & the social aspects contained within"Growth3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now what you may think is a rant because it sounds like it is within the first 2 paragraphs actually isn't and I think many of you will be a tad shocked at what you read considering how outspoken I am when it comes to deviantART and the way the site is run. Please read that and come back here to my journal after doing so.
Truth is though, I was basically kicking back Friday evening and just relaxing. I had never really paid much attention to my gallery on here.

TempestTempest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
amid such passionate frenzy
the winter queen rises again
her wild wanton arms out-stretched
winds and worlds within her grasp.
and on her whisper,
mighty storms are born;
infancy whimpers to ferocious growls--

and she, tempestuous ice maiden,
calls us to lie down upon it,
helpless to resist this
