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 Shot3 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.

Feature: Stories with no wordsAn image is worth a thousand storiesFeature: Stories with no words2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
OmeN2501, creator of the following deviation, Rain, says in the artist comments:
"Story behind it is pretty simple, they want something form her, she cannot let them have it... no matter the cost"
Who is she?
Now the viewer is left with a series of questions... Who is she? Who is pursuing her? What do they want from her? Why is this thing so important she's willing to take her own life if that means they won't have it? What would happen if they get it? And most importantly; what circumstances lead the pieces of this story up to this point?
The answers to these questions are left open to the viewer. It's up to you to decide who she is.
Tip of the Day: is it memorable?In this ever growing art community (especially online) it gets harder and harder to be noticed. You will be noticed when your art and/or the idea behind your art is unique.Tip of the Day: is it memorable?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Think about how memorable your art is. If it looks like a million other things, no one is going to remember it.

Tip of the Day: Dealing with StressStress is the root for many health problems. It's not necessary. Just do what you need to do. Stop stressing.Tip of the Day: Dealing with Stress3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In high pressure situations if I start stressing I will think what is the worst that could happen and how could I bounce back from that. Once I see that I would still be ok and be able to come back from that difficulty... then the stress disappears. Then I start imagining what would it feel like to be successful and that gets me excited to continue towards my goals.
Stress is something that everyone deals with in their own ways but if you don't have an effective way to deal with it, feel free to try my method.

Conifer featureThe annoying part of living where I do is that finding conifer forests is quite hard, scratch that, impossible. I grew up in a small town surrounded by conifer forest on three sides and a lake on the fourth. I know I can't live where there is no water but while living here since 2009 I've realised I need my real forest not the leafy forest. I need pine cones and evergreens. To satisfy my need a little I went rummaging on dA and found a couple of pretty photos.Conifer feature1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It really wouldn't be a feature from me if I didn't have a fav limit so all of these have less than 100, several have less than 10 favs. Several of the ones with few favs are several years old so make sure to give them lots of love!
Btw. still open for submissions to another conifer feature, max 5 photos though and it can be either yours or someone else. Note or comment with your picks.

More opportunities come if you make a habit of striking up conversations with people you don't know.
You wouldn't believe some of the people I've been able to get to know just because I decided to talk to them.

Time for a Feature!Word of the day:Time for a Feature!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Phlegmatic: not easily excited to action or display of emotion; apathetic; sluggish.
I think I'm going to start posting words in my journal that I come across and find interesting, inspiring, or just plain strange. So, there you go.
Also, I'd like to do a feature, because it's been so long since I did one, and because there has been some AMAZING art on dA lately. This will just be photography-related, because I simply lack the time to read much these days, but I hope to do a literary feature soon.
By the way, I don't quite understand all these dA changes to the journals. You used to be able to drag the deviations you wanted to feature from their respective folders straight into your journal, but it seems you can't do so anymore. Is there an easier way to feature works without having to copy and paste every single individual thumbnail?? That could take forever!!
Anyway, here goes. These are some of the most amazing recent works I've stumbled across on dA, for

Relativity Contest WinnersMy husband and I (Ravenswd) recently ran a contest to help introduce our Relativity Universe to the dA community. It was hosted on my mirz-alt account and was a spin on the old "draw our OC" contest. However, the difference was that the piece had to incorporate either the characters or the Relativity universe in general. For a contest featuring a rather unknown set of characters, we were very happy with the turnout.Relativity Contest Winners3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The judging for the contest was done on three factors: Creativity/originality, incorporation of the Relativity universe, and general art. We really did go back and forth on judging several of the pieces. But, after all the tallying up was done, we came up with our winners.
Note that we were so impressed by all the entries that all non-winners will receive 50 points as a thank-you for entering. Details on the contest and the prize list can be found here ---> http://mirz-alt.deviantart.
