"The one surefire way to get nothing is to not bother looking" - Joe McNally
Research carried out by Nikon has estimated that an amazing 332 million jubilee related photos will be taken on the day of the Thamas River Pageant on June 3rd. That's amazing. It even tops the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last year. The upcoming Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth has sparked patriotism in the most unlikely places meaning that driving down a normal street turns into an epic photo opportunity with the various bunting, flags and other bits and pieces. So whether or not you're local to London and able to join in the four days of pomp and ceremony that the British are allegedly famed for - you might find that there are events and things local to you that will bring out the journalistic candid photographer that's screaming inside to get out! But in this day and age, when every second perso

"Is Photography Art?
This week the Guardian asks Is Photography Art? Now this is an interesting question and I already know my stance on it, Photography, to me - IS art. It can't not be art. It's creation, creativity, capturing, preserving - but it's Art. I'd be interested to see who agrees with this and who would say no to the Guardian's question - and why. So let's get thinking about it and debate it in the comments on this article...One commenter on the Guardian Article said the following..."Photography is definitely not art. In my opinion it's something way more beautiful and profound."

" What's the most obscure subject you have been asked to photograph?"
If there is one vital thing that I have learned in my years as an amateur photographer - it's that to diversify and spread yourself amongst as many outlets, ideas and topics as possible is the best way to move forward and become successful. Photography doesn't begin or end with a Wedding. Nor does it start with a fashion shoot that pays you hundreds of pounds. There are so many niches and gaps in between that people overlook as lesser known and inadequate - but that can be one of the strongest rungs on the ladder to success. (See what I did there?) It's coming to the end of a week where I've stretched myself
photographically, more so than usual, and I'm more than happy to share what I have learned in order to help out those who want to step up with their work. Last week I was recruited by an image company as a
photographer documenting ins
May Contest: Navigating deviantART The contest deadline has been extended to June 10th! There will be no further extensions, so get your entries in ASAP!May Contest: Navigating deviantART2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's a common complaint...
Particularly for our newer members. "I've set up my profile...now where do I go?"
May's contest aims to answer that question. Your challenge is to create a tutorial aimed at deviantART's new members that shows them as much of the site as possible. Think about when you were new - what areas of the site did you discover only after blundering around? What areas did someone else point out to you? What do you wish you had known as a new member that seems like common knowledge now?
You must be a member of #SolutionsSanctuary to enter. All join requests are automatically accepted.
All entries must be created specifically for this contest (uploaded on or after May 10th).

Over the course of this week we'll celebrate the positive side of DDs and discuss the negatives, allay some fears, and address some myths in the hopes that all members of dA will have a better understanding of how and why DDs are featured. We hope that everyone will enjoy what we have prepared for you all as we tried to incorporate the feedback you have so generously given us as we prepared for this week.

Deviousness Award Interview with JoseFelipeMWhat is this Awesome Achievement?Deviousness Award Interview with JoseFelipeM11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out
on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.
The Deviousness Award for January 2013 goes to `focusandframe.
Hello JoseFelipe! Please give us a quick introduction of who you are, in and outside DA.
On deviantART, I am `focusandframe, a senior member for a bit more than six months. I recently received the Deviousness Award (obviously that's what this interview is for) and `TimberClipse pointed out that not only am I the youngest senior, but I took his spot as youngest Deviousness Award Recipient! I am more of an art appreciator than an

Quick update to let you all know that I will be doing my best to get more active than ever once my last assignment is finished in a bout a week's time, and that I've already started my article covering all the aspects of Pixel Art I can think of! That may take some time to proof read and get ready for publishing here, but in the mean time, feel free to make suggestions of things you'd like included in it, like things you don't understand or want to know more about etc,
Lastly, I'm also considering a Pixel Art group of my own, to bring together resources, great pixel art and great pixel artists all in one place, but I don't know for certain yet whether I will or not, I want to be sure I
