Street Photography: The Capture vs. The PoseStreet PhotographyStreet Photography: The Capture vs. The Pose4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

DeviantArt's New Watermark
The DeviantArt watermark that can be added to image deviations has been redesigned! The new watermark is designed to protect your work without distracting viewers from enjoying it.
Previously submitted deviations with the watermark enabled will be transitioned to the new watermark automatically — however, with hundreds of millions of deviations to sort through, this process is going to take several weeks to complete. We'll report back in when the transition is finished.

DeviantArt Timeline UpdatesDeviantArt Timeline Updates3 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Earlier this year, we introduced the DeviantArt Timeline, which highlights the work we’ve accomplished in the past, and lays the groundwork for the work that is to come. As we progress, we’ll update the Timeline with additions to show what’s in store for the near future on DeviantArt. This journal outlines items that have been added to the timeline today, and what you can expect to see soon.

The Upcoming Thumbnail GridThe Upcoming Thumbnail Grid4 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
On DeviantArt, your deviations are paramount, and we want to present them in the best way possible, even in thumbnail form. Over the past few months, we've been working on a new thumbnail grid that maintains the integrity of your deviations, no matter their dimensions or content types. Our goal is to be better at displaying art than any other site on the Internet.
Problems We’re Solving
We can do better than the current thumbnail grid, which includes uneven or irregular gaps between deviations. These gaps don't have any visual rhythm, causing your eyes to jump all over the place. Some content types, including literature, journals, pixel art, and emoticons, don’t look ideal. Our new grid focuses on fixing these issues while modernizing the look and feel of DeviantArt.
Below are some concept designs that represent one avenue we’re exploring. (These are works-in-progress and not final. Also note that the category menu

Introducing the Timeline of DeviantArt!
Good morning Callisto VIII...
DeviantArt.com will celebrate its 15th birthday in August 2015. While many online communities have come and gone during the last decade and a half, DeviantArt remains because of our passionate and committed community. In that time, we've celebrated many milestones, and it became apparent we were in need of a place to share our victories and our challenges. And since we want to move toward more complete transparency with the community, what better time to also showcas
Collaborative Deviations: A DiscussionCollaborative Deviations: A Discussion3 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
A common request from deviants is to post collaborative deviations, where more than one deviant has worked to create the end product. In our recent Top Community Feature Requests and Our Responses journal, we briefly addressed why we haven’t yet undertaken collaborative deviations. However, we want to open a discussion around how collaborations could theoretically work, so that we can better understand the community’s desires for such a feature.
Simple vs. Complex
We've already put a fair amount of thought into collaborations, but don't want to make assumptions about around how deviants would use the feature to best serve their needs. From simple to complex, there are a number of ways we could implement collaborations and we’re interested to hear the community’s expectations.

Scheduled Maintenance and Read-Only ModeScheduled Maintenance and Read-Only Mode6 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
DeviantArt will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on Wednesday, April 8th from approximately 11:00 PM to 11:30 PM Pacific.
During this time, DeviantArt.com and the DeviantArt Mobile App will be in read-only mode — you'll be unable to submit, comment, or +fav deviations (or take other actions that require being logged-in.) However, you'll still be able to browse and search the site, and we encourage you to find and share artwork that you enjoy, bringing attention to artists you love!
This scheduled maintenance will allow us to test changes to our backend systems to make DeviantArt faster and more reliable. Rest assured that none of your data will be affected or lost during this time.
Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to providing you with an even better DeviantArt experience!
Thank you for your patience. DeviantArt's scheduled maintenance is now complete. Please
The Deviousness Award 2.0The Deviousness Award 2.04 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
T he Deviousness Award, bestowed in recognition of exemplary membership and an outstanding spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community, has recently undergone a reevaluation to provide a focus and a re-definition as to just what Deviousness truly represents.
The award is given once per month to honor a deviant who has gone above and beyond in their services to the DeviantArt Community. The 189 recipients of the Award thus far have brought something to the community that was not there before their presence, and it's our duty — and honor — to publicly recognize their efforts in doing so.
Early on, Deviousness was given more than once per month to a deviant whose invo
