If you’re a follower of devBUG, you already have some familiarity with Stash -- the name we’ve given to the revamp of deviantART’s exisiting submission process.
However, Stash is so much more than a simple revamp. Your Stash on deviantART will become home to all your images, writing... everything! Here's how it works:
You can drag and drop multiple files into your Stash, quickly and easily.
However, those files won’t appear in your Gallery, or to your Watchers, until you specifically say so. Allowing you an easy place to storage images until you’re ready to publish

About the contest [Bullet; Blue][Bullet; Blue]
To celebrate dA's 11th birthday your community volunteers team is organizing a devious contest! The idea is easy: 11 years of dAvolution
11 years of evolution of deviantArt, of new features, epic moments, changes, incredible celebrations, projects, contests, etc.
Many of us did just enjoyed a little part of this 11 years, but we all know there's been huge changes, big events we'll never forget, new features that change our experience as deviants, and, to summarize, things that make this site evolve to what is today.
Your duty: represent this dAvolution, represent the event(s) or changes you think that really had a huge impact on deviantArt and deviants.

The August 'Ice Cream' Coloring Contest
It's that time again. Courtesy of the #color-me-club, another contest is being held, and it is open to the entire dA community! Last month, we held a lineart contest for the theme 'Ice Cream.' A winner was chosen, and now the winning two linearts will be the subject of this month's coloring contest!
You read that right. We're changing it up a bit this month, and extending the opportunity to select one of two linearts. Or, if you want, you can select both sets of lineart and participate twice!
HOW IT WORKS:
The contest is simple. Take any (or both if you feel dangerous) of the lines above, download the full resolution, print it off, or open it

What Do You See?
Challenge: Take a look at one of these four photographs.
Then simply show us what you see! But here's the catch - it MUST be dA related!
Here is an example I did:
Rules and Guidelines
The deviation should be dA themed, as this is a birthday contest! For example, you may wish to include Fella, popular emotes, llamas, ninjas etc
You may NOT use the image directly.
Whichever shapes you see in the stock images should be translated as closely as possible in your finished piece. For example, the mountain in my example is the same shape as the wallpaper rip.
Please link to the stock image used and say what part of your image it's used in. For example I used the shape of the wallpa

Notes to aspiring photographers 4Capturing subjects in motion.Notes to aspiring photographers 43 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ten random tips for getting better results with 'action' photography.
1. If your subject is moving and your intention is that the subject is sharp in your picture, putting the camera on a tripod is a bad idea.
2. There are only two ways to capture a moving target; panning/following the subject, and maximising shutter speed. (Using flash is essentially the same as raising the shutter speed.)
3. If you use flash to arrest movement, make sure that the contribution from the flash is significantly greater than ambient light, and don't try to use shutter speed AND flash at the same time or you'll run into synchronisation problems.
4. Blurry can be beautiful, so don't delete 'failures' in camera. They may be buried treasure when you see them full size.
5. When you are panning to freeze a subject, make sure you 'follow through' like a golf stroke, and make sure your stance is comfortable.
6. Panning/tracking at low shutter speeds will give

Lenses - different kinds and what they do
Other equipment to use in macro photography
How to approach macro photography
Focus stacking (still to come)
General post processing
When it comes to which lens to use for macro photography, the answer is that most lenses nowadays are capable of at least close-up photography. The difference is that some lenses have a greater magnification ratio than others. The magnification ratio tells you how big the subject is in relation to its real-life size. For example, 1:4 means that the image

The series of 5 articles about Street Photography made by myraincheck and slightly edited by moi* continues with:
STREET PHOTOGRAPHY TUTORIAL - PART ONE
THE HUMAN SUBJECT
(article from photo4u.it - il portale italiano della fotografia translated and adapted to dA by myraincheck)
Let's close our eyes and imagine going out in the streets and looking for unusual things. What do we expect to find? People, first of all.
That's good, the HUMAN PRESENCE is a fundamental element of street photography.
If we want to use only this ingredient, we'll be able to realize a true street photo only if the person we capture will have something unusual or interesting or is doing something unusual or interesting. Otherwise we'll have a good portrait, an enviromental portrait, a wide portrait whatever, but not a street photo.
