Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the one who takes care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are I love you, I'm sorry, and Help me. Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile and see how much pain they may be in.

This absolutely hillarious video has been "infecting" the web for some time now (and I wanted to feature it sooner, but oh well, life and such). The first time I saw it, I was laughing so hard, because many of these things, I actually do in manips - sometimes not this quickly, but I do. And it is done daily for just about any magazine cover or vip photo shoot that you get to see! This is the true part about this video. And it's the sad part, too.
Uncover the fake Beauty
As a photomanipulator, I am often amazed at what other non-photoshop (or any other graphics programme) users will accept as real without question. Especially younger ones will be influenced by this image they see day in day out and aspire to be like it. To be as fake and "perfect" as the cover girl. How can you achieve anything like that in real life? You can't. It's that simple.
All that is left is Photoshop - the real one. You don't need a fancy plug-in to make all th

I really wanna say thanks to everyone who has watched me. ;u;
I never really would've thought I'd make this many watchers. ;o;
I know most of you are probably not reading this, but either way, I'm pretty grateful for y'all... even if you just watch me for no apparent reason and never even plan to look at my art.

Celebrating Diversity #36The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to share deviations outside of our area of comfort and explore art we usually don't see. So today, I decided to venture into the Stock Photography gallery and you know what I discovered? That there are some stock photographs, which by nature are intended for other artists to use, as reference or for derivative works, etc. that are truly masterpieces just by themselves!Celebrating Diversity #361 month ago in Art Features More Like This

Let's Learn Portraiture: Model CommunicationIn an effort to further give back to the community, I have decided to kick off a series of informative articles called 'Let's Learn Portraiture.' The goal will be to cover topics related to people and portrait photography. To start, we will cover a topic suggested by *ThomasJergelLet's Learn Portraiture: Model Communication1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Communicating With Your Model
Get to Know Your Subject
Different photographers take different approaches to how they interact with their models, but I've always taken a personal approach. Learning about your subject's interests can not only make them more comfortable, but it can also lead to more striking images that follow along with those interests. Communication is key when it comes to interacting with your model, and building a quick rapport is important in order to solidify that.
When working with amateur models who may not be familiar with posing for the camera, you may often find that they will resort to e

Are you interested in trying our Official Photomanipulation Tutorial Challenge but unsure of where to begin? Look no further! Here are some tips about creating a tutorial that is easy for you to write and easy for us to understand. We hope these pointers will be useful to you; as always, feel free to leave questions or comments.
1. Sit down and really think about what you are good at doing
What do people compliment you about most frequently? What are you most proud of in your manipulations so far? It could be anything, from the way you select and cut out stock to the way you make your colors pop. Start from your strength, something you can talk about with ease.
2. Take the pressure off!
No matter how "good" someone is at photomanipulation already, they still have something interesting to le
Let's Learn Portraiture: Natural LightingWelcome to the second installment of Let's Learn Portraiture! The previous installment was about Model Communication. For this installment, we will be tackling a topic for those photographers who enjoy taking portraits outdoors.Let's Learn Portraiture: Natural Lighting1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Portraiture with Natural Lighting
1.) Avoid Direct Sunlight
While it can really bring out the color of the eyes and make them pop, having your model stare into the sun should never be on the agenda. Not only is it exceedingly uncomfortable for your model, but it casts very harsh shadows. In most cases, you want to position your model with the sun behind them, or to the side.This will illuminate the hair and offer a nice glow. The issue then is that the subject's face may be too dark (underexposed). To solve this, you can bounce some light back into th

Abuse of realism can be badNote: i just used the word realism, because im not smart to think a better word in english, by realisim i mean over dose of photo references, no personal color palette, no nothing just a guy that his work looks like photos taken from different people, no humansoul behind it. Im not attacking a genre of art here, because realism can be personal too, it can have the artist touch, but that takes decades to perfect.Even realism can be personal, i love a lot of artist that works realism, but they master it, i can recognize their work, they take their own photos, they dont seek short cuts. Im talking of reference abuse, people that just wants to skip steps, the artist that cant imagine things anymore, and uses photos from someone else and copies it.. Im talking about realism starting to affect just too much your comic and cartoony look, to the extreme, that you wont recognize who DRAW that?Abuse of realism can be bad2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
