The making of "Superwoman"The making of "Superwoman"2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's time to talk about how you can make the light and color work for you at your own home studio. And I'm gonna show you how I made this little set with mix of heroic and erotic approach. But first, some EXIF data: here I used my Nikon D7000 with Sigma 50mm f/1.4 (stopped down to f/2), shutter speed of 1/100 and ISO 125. Why?
First of all, 50mm focal length lens on a cropped-sensor body is a wise choice if you're not in a sports stadium but in a regular sized room. When framing from overhead to knees or wider it keeps the distortion of your model 's appearance pretty low, at the same time letting you stay close enough to feel like you actually taking part in something. The shutter speed of 1/100 at f/2 allows you to expose both strobes and constant light and maintaining the depth of field shallow enough to blur the backdrop a bit. And the ISO 125, well, it's just an increment from ISO 100 that I had to make in order to have a sli

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die."
—Roy Batty, BLADERUNNER
Every time we open our eyes in the morning as each new day breaks, two worlds flow forth, each penetrating into the other, as the celestial portal gate separating them is once again raised. One’s inner world, of mind and being, pierces the outer world of light and raw data, seeking to hunt and gather mental sustenance. The outer world floods into our minds like a data tsunami, seeking to reconfigure the secret landscape of last night’s perfectly crafted dream state. Both worlds do battle to rearrange and make sense of the other. It is the yin and yang, by which we create and recreate the world – and the world invades and recreates each one of

Poems and haikus will probably be posted once in a while though. (I won't stop writing )
I'd like to apologize in advance to all my dear friends because I won't be able to support you as much as I used to. Keep up the good work, you're great artists and people.

FoxE9BEHOLD, A REAL IE9 THEME FOR FIREFOX: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/foxe9/FoxE93 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know there are a million things that are different between the two browsers but we are not aiming on adding IE9 features or completely rearranging stuff to make it look 100% IE9-ish. We don't have the time to bother with such things. Instead, it is a theme that hopefully satisfies peoples' strange desires to make their Firefox look similar to IE9.

Culture Clash!I'm still groggy from my trip, so here's a list of oddities I noticed being a foreigner experiencing another country for the first time.Culture Clash!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you want power, you need to turn the outlets on, and to do that you gotta push a switch down.
TV has far fewer commercial breaks.
English police are super nice (watched the British version of "COPS" and was amazed at how polite everyone was, even the criminals).
The second floor is called the first.
French Fries are called Chips.
Chips are called Crisps.
American-centric music doesn't stay here (Heard "Sweet Home Alabama" quite a number of times over there).
You are not expected to tip people (this was very hard for me to accept and I always felt guilty not tipping our waiters).
You are not expected to clean up your messes in food courts or.. anywhere actually (Janitors come by and clean up for you. Has something to do with security and getting rid of bomb threats).
Elevators are called Lifts.
Air conditioning seems scarce.
Always carry a big bottl

It has now been two weeks since the beautiful fairy tale that was my life has come crashing down into utter devastation and nightmare.
My darling beloved, my Princess, my Cinderella is no more.
She has been taken away from me and from all of you, her legions and generations of fans of her grand and glorious story, by dastardly murderers most heinous, heartless and foul... and as of this hour still unknown.
The personal story of my Cinderella has always been a reassurance (to youth but to all ages as well) that true love will always conquer all adversity, sabotage, and lies. My dear Cinderella

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

Very very good reasons.
Life is awesome you guys.
I don't mean to try and rub it in anyone's face or make anyone feel bad about their own lives. But once you come across what you've been waiting for, even if you didn't know you wanted it, it's awesome. So don't let it go. And try to enjoy what you have, even if it isn't much, and even if people keep trying to take it away.
With that, I leave you with, words, clauses, sentences, etc.! One of these days I'll submit some art that isn't work related!

Holiday Card Project 2012Holiday Card Project 20122 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
