Tip of the DayMany times if we don't know how to do something or achieve something we feel it's not doable. Successful people will find a way even if they don't know the answer at first. Sometimes the best way to find the right way is to try as many ways as you can think of. The road to success is paved with failures. Stay positive!Tip of the Day4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Manavata means “humanity.” A social movement was born in India bearing that name, with “Humanity is our identity” as their guiding mantra. Like the many facets making up a sparkling diamond, here is a collection of photographs to remind us we are, together, one beautiful humanity.
“If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.”
– John F. Kennedy
The Importance of Captions in PhotographyWhat IS a Caption?The Importance of Captions in Photography9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words...but a caption is priceless, especially in photojournalism. It's the background, the explanation to your photograph. It tells us why we should care. Austin Kleon provides an interesting insight on them in his article The Power of Captions: Words Added to Pictures.
Also, I'm trying to compress a 2 hour class into a single journal. If you're interested in writing according to the AP Style Guide (I'm talking about commas, dates, location abbreviations, identification, etc.), there's a pretty sweet link at the bottom of the journal.
What's going on in this picture? Is the soldier drawing a beautiful picture of the lady? Is she writing the lady a ticket? Who knows!
Light Painting with TutorialsPainting With LightLight Painting with Tutorials3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source. It's a fun technique to dry out on a warm dark night For more information on light paintings or for tutorials, just Google around; it's a pretty popular and well documented technique. A quick search gives me: http://www.diyphotography.net/painting_with_light (if you prefer written tutorials) and http://lightpaintingphotography.com/light-painting-tutorials/jason-d-page/orb-techniques/ (if you prefer video tutorials). A tutorial for light painting with portraiture is also available on my website: http://jfotography.net/tutorials-light-painting-with-portraiture.php

Resume and The New YearIt's still strange to say last year, but lots of things happened last year. Both good and bad. I guess there has to be a balance. There was lots of disappointments, bad news but also lots of good things, accomplishments, pleasant surprises... I just hope those bad things disappear and good things continue in 2012. Of course, I wish the same to you my friends who have been really supportive and I have to thank you for that because your support brought me lots of good things.Resume and The New Year4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Edit: I will move everything into one PDF when everything's done. This is the noob-version for total beginners. The rest: bear the basics.
The preparation can be split into different parts. Each part has to be done, so don't leave out anything and complain later.
1. What kind of job is my goal?
Okay, you decided you want to apply. Somewhere... but "somewhere" doesn't work. Suck it up and make up your mind WHERE you want to apply because that normally also leads to for WHAT POSITION you want to apply. That's basically the same for freelancer/full-time job.
Ask friends or maybe even those who wouldn't pet you on the head every time you show them a crappy doodle where they see you. Look around and check if your desired company needs somebody like you and if you'd actually fit in. Do some research and prepare for a goal company or at least an industry

I had a very interesting conversation last week. For those that were with me almost two years ago, you know about T. He is a true inspiration for all. Not even two years of all but being obliterated by an IED while still remaining intact, this guy scored a 290 on his pt test and once this shutdown silliness is over, is heading to Air Assault school. Looks like I have no excuse now. All I did was have a baby. I've got some catching up to do. I have this strange need to become 55ths second female qualified for Air Asault, not to mention getting my jump wings.

Squicken - due September 26th...or soMy Hang glider pilot friends called me "Pelican" and it has been my "handle" for many years but my girlfriend (of almost 4 years now) calls me "Squid". I call her "Chicken". So, it seems only reasonable that our offspring should be named "Squicken". He is due September 26th or whenever he chooses to come out and play. On his birth certificate, he will be "Cameron Michael" but he's gonna be stuck with Squicken...so be it.Squicken - due September 26th...or so3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of the joys of pregnancy are all the stupid classes one feels compelled to attend. Of course, it isn't fair in the least to refer to these wonderfully instructional forums as "stupid" because there truly is a copious amount of information disseminated during the eons of hours you sit through. Videos, lectures, illustrated instructions, and hands on practice doing all sorts of things one rarely finds palatable. Well, by "one", I mean my girlfriend and me.
What astounds me is how excited everyone in our classes is...well...everyone except the two of us. W
What Is Blackbox And Why Should I Get It?After taking a look at the screenshots displayed either in my gallery or in :iconblackboxdesktop: 's galleries, a lot of Deviants are asking me what is Blackbox and how (and why) should they use it.

Well, Blackbox is a shell for Windows or a window manager for Linux, the styles (themes) being interchangeable between the two platforms, something unique in computing. In this essay I will only talk about the Windows flavor, since it's much more flexible than its Linux counterpart.
What is a shell? Well, it's the dressing over a cake, the clothing over a body, the greenery covering a bush. Every operating system has a shell. The Windows' native shell is Explorer, which is not only a file browser, like most of you may think. Delete Explorer and Windows crash. It's a fine shell, especially in the case of Windows 7, but it's h

What Really Goes On During a Nude Shoot?There's a thieving troll on the loose here at dA. I'm not going to link to or name the twerp, because he's caused enough drama, already. That's not the purpose of this journal entry. He'll be banned soon enough, and that will be the end of it. If you're watching me, it's likely that you're watching some of the photographers and models he's harassing , already. If you're not, don't worry about it.What Really Goes On During a Nude Shoot?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But in his rants, he made accusations of photographers having sex with every model they work with, and vice-versa. This guy may be a nut, but that's an assumption a lot of people make.
Photographers rarely sleep with their models, save for having a normal healthy relationship with them (it doesn't count when the model is the photographer's wife or girlfriend). Those that do are likely to develop reputations as being womanizing assholes, and it's not long before models stop working with them. Believe it or n
What is the difference between art nude and porn?I have seen this discussed many many times but just came across this answer from what seems to be Roman Catholic perspective. To my surprise, I for one quite like the way they put it. http://youtu.be/tBuTg155y1What is the difference between art nude and porn?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
They also touched on the aspect of shame where a model reveals her body to a number of people for a specific artistic purpose and not to anyone else's gaze where there is no such understanding.
These are quotes from John Paul's letter to artists referenced in the video:
"The distinction between the moral and artistic aspects is fundamental, but no less important is the connection between them. Each conditions the other in a profound way. In producing a work, artists express themselves to the point where their work becomes a unique disclosure of their own being, of what they are and of how they are what they are."
"Through his works, the artist speaks to others and communicates with them."
"The theme of beauty is decisive for a discourse on art. It was alrea

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."

Away in a stable
A stall for a bed
Little ponygirl jenny
Lays down her sweet head
Her harness is chafing
Her bridle is tight
She is trained very harshly
And she's locked up each night.
Her tail is very painful
As her rectum it fills
But the strap twixt her love lips
Gives her wonderful thrills.
The nipple clamps bite deeply
And her bit is so hard
As she's chained to the sulky
Which she pulls round the yard.
Her owner keeps the reins tight
As he whips her so cruel
So remember poor jenny
As you celebrate Yule!
