Best of June 2013Here are some of the best pictures I found in June, 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.Best of June 20132 years ago in Art Features More Like This

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time.
-Henry David Thoreau
Water, air, and cleanness are the chief articles in my pharmacy.

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 V33 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.

Different types of lighting.Hello there!Different types of lighting.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have the whim to write an article about the different kinds of lighting that I use in most of my work.
I hope this gives you some insight and inspiration about how to begin going about using the kinds of light that are easy to find.
Leave a comment if you have any questions.
Silhouette-causing (The light source can be anything. From sunlight or a bright sky to your table lamp. The principle is: The background is brighter than your subject thus causing your subject to fall into a silhouette appearance)
Outside, just before sunset or early morning ( This type of light is very bright and warmly colored and shines from a low angle and the sky is typically very blue)

> Please introduce yourself, in your own words. What are your interests?
The standard boilerplate is that I am a technologist, a wonk, and an artist. I’ve been practicing at that last role (read: making some or all of my income via creative output) for over 20 years. My interests are sort-of all over the map, but on paper probably make as much or as little sense as those of anyone else. Because I like Top-X lists, here's one:
1. Music. I'm currently the owner a 5-figure collection of releases that go from the super-accessible bubblegum of the day to complete bonkers fringe noise, on cd/vinyl/cassette/ogg/mp3 and 8-trac

Failography"It is important to take bad pictures" (Diane Arbus)Failography1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the beginning of an interesting book by Clément Chéroux, Fautographie : petite histoire de l'erreur photographique (I don't know if the book was translated in english, I couldn't find it on the net, but the title should sound like Failography: a brief history of the photographic error).
Amongst the biggest 'mistakers' of photography, the book mentions and comments the works of many famous photographers: Man Ray, Lisette Model, Lee Friedlander, Ugo Mulas, Andreé Kertész, Lartigue.
Many are the anecdotes and the interesting discoveries, for example the story of a big national contest in France, in 1991, entitled 'Fautographie' (fail photography), a contest that had a big success, with thousands of entries and famous editors and critics working on decoding the case of the photographic error.
According to Chéroux what is commonly considered a 'photographic
