David's Girls2011 Was a very good year for my work, I received a bit of recognition, made some new friends, traveled all over southern California taking pictures and even revived some work in film.David's Girls2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But no one knows better than me I didn't do it alone, these absolutely phenomenal and very talented individuals made it all possible and without them, I would be out there shooting landscapes and cactus. These girls got up early, suffered my company on long drives to remote areas of desert, hiked, climbed rocks and braved cold, wind, rain and heat just to create these images.
All I can say is each of them deserves serious kudos, each of them has my deepest respect, gratitude and love because they are what art is made of. And I'm not the only photographer they work with so you really ought to be watching them! The incredible people I had the privilege and honor of working with in 2011, in order of appearance...
FINALLY VACAAAAAAAAAAAATION!! <3I guess that finally really, really deserves a sparkle!! xD Sorry that I was away for so long from deviantART but I was working for 4 weeks and meanwhile my mom went on a three weeks cure so I had loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooads of work in the household and because my grandma and my dad fell ill this much again that I even had to take them to the hospital since I could no longer help them because they were just too ill to be cared about at home. Luckily they immediately found out what they had and dad neither had to be operated nor did the whole thing (luckily!) kill him (since I put him into the hospital soon enough) but nevertheless I spent really much time taking care of both of them since my mom wasn't here. Now she is finally back and I am finally freed from my part-time job so I finally REALLY have holidays just like everybody else. Just my degree dissertation is left.FINALLY VACAAAAAAAAAAAATION!! <32 years ago in Personal More Like This

Better Post-ProductionQuestion:Better Post-Production1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hello Mickle.. i am very impressed with your work and love how your photos look like. If you find the time i would be so happy if you could take a look at my last few pics .. but mostly my studio work and tell me how to make them better in postproduction (PS). I use 2 lights in the studio, one softbox( for face) and one umbrella (for body) and on my camera a flash (Speedlight YN560) to activate the studio lights, or do you think i am on the right way ... i am using Canon EOS 600D. And again thanks so much for posting your work here !!!
Your best post-production actually begins in pre-production. You should know what a shot can look like in your head and have an understanding of how to get there before committing to taking the shot. Everything you do should be done with intent. It's there in the image because you wanted it there. Techniques were used because you wanted to use them. A happy accident is just that, an accident, they are unplanned and rare.

Mid Month FeaturesHey everyone! So, since a few people insisted on me doing another End of the Month Journal, I decided to take your advice and do it! There's one little catch though, I didn't keep track of my faves this month, so instead, I'm gonna do this Feature Journal. Just wanted to shine some light on some artists that I either really like or feel deserve more attention. Helps me get back in the swing of writing things. In February, I'll get on task and keep track of all of my faves and all. So, lets get to this 'End of the Month but not really' Journal...Mid Month Features2 months ago in Personal More Like This
ChuckWalton :iconChuckWalton: - An artist who specializes in sci-fi and fantasy drawings, Chuck puts an incredible amount of detail into every piece in his gallery. I'm usually not a fan of mechs that come from anywhere OTHER than Mechwarrior/BattleTech, but the ones in his gallery are outstanding.

I'm leavingDon't worry, Im not leaving Deviant Art totally but I have decided to leave nearly all groups, and no longer submit my work to any of them.I'm leaving2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been thinking long and hard about this and I truly believe the lack of activity on here is due to groups.
Even I get annoyed at seeing the same image appear in my watch list many times - many groups feature the same image.
My thought process is this, if I want to watch an artist or models work then I will add a watch to their profile.
I do not see why "Groups" should get the credit (and watches) for featuring other peoples work.
OK, I know that by adding my work to groups then my work is more likely to be seen by a wider audience, but I already have 13,000 watchers of my work. Of them, only a handful every comment or fave my work.
I really do appreciate every comment that my watchers make on my work and make every effort to reply to every one.
Here are just a few of my latest fave photos: Comments would be very much appreciated.

Nostalgia por el Deviant.Ganas me dan de abandonar el Facebook y volver al deviantart, al menos aqui me obligaba a dibujar, a hablar de arte con otros artistas y no me enfrascaba en discusiones banales con perfectos extraños, nadie me molestaba con que le diera like o share o tag a su foto para ganar un concurso ni me pedían que le diera seguimiento a una pagina que se dedica a criticar a alguien, ni leía tantas teorias de conspiración, ni me pedían que denunciara a un tipo que pateó a su perro, ni dar mi opinión a un evento que generalmente no es de mi incumbencia ni leer los comentarios de gente que respetaba hasta que leí sus mega-estúpidas opiniones.Nostalgia por el Deviant.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ahhhh... Pero si me voy del face... ¿quien va a cuidar a esos pobres elefantes que requieren de mis likes? Su extinción pesaría sobre mis hombros por el resto de mi existencia.
