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 Lighting3 years 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

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

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.

just ramblings on the topic of style :)So, after a metric ton of questions about it, i will assemble some PERSONAL OPINIONSjust ramblings on the topic of style :)1 month ago in Personal More Like This
On the nature of style, its ups and downs... stuff like that
This is based on my own personal experiences, mistakes, dead ends and fuckups.
So take anything i say here with a few grains of salt.
In fact , reason i'm writing this is that i have started getting an unsettling amount of notes flat out idolizing the imperfect unfinished mess that is my style, so before it harms people's growth i wanted to share some personal insights i learned over time. Some through experience, other through conversation with industry professionals.
Style.. the way i would define it is, artistic handwriting.
It is a coveted answer to a visual problem, often imitated but unless build from scratch, rarely comprehended.
If we use the handwriting metaphor, style becomes a natural extension of cutting corners, and working fast.

Storytelling Tropes CombinedI took my previous tropes entry, combined them, edited them for clarity, and added a few. If you have any more, put 'em in the comments!Storytelling Tropes Combined2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Executing Order 66 - Systematically killing off the cast. Fun for slasher stories, not for when you're writing a drama and have no idea how to make it dramatic without death.
When it works: Game of Thrones - We care about the characters and they die with respect to the situation and the results of that death has lasting consequences. The deaths are NOT WORTHLESS.
When it doesn't work: DC's Countdown. Watch Linkara's videos about it to understand why this fails so painfully.
Phantom Menace Challenge - Have someone describe a character without mentioning their job or their appearance. The more the person can describe the character's personality, the better written the character. Compare and contrast the cast of A New Hope and Phantom Menace for example.
Ringing Bell Syndrome - When something starts out sweet, cute, or co

Some are my own invention, some are from college professors, and some are from the glorious Ebert:Storytelling Tropes to Avoid3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Traveling Sloth - Brainless characters are dragged along a wild adventure in which they do nothing and learn nothing.
Evangellion Effect - Huge world-changing events are happening but the characters are too obsessed with their personal problems to notice
Snow White - A character who does not act but inspires others to act for him/her.
Phantom Menace Challenge: Ask yourself and others if they can describe the characters in a story without mentioning what they look like or what their jobs are. The more the character can be described, the better written it is. Invented by RedLetterMedia.
Lots-O-Plots - A story with a main theme that strings many, many vaguely related characters together. There is no central character and too many people to pay attenti

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

No slo-mo running at the end! I want a crane shot in reg-mo! Makes it seem more frantic and desperate!
NO SEPIA and don't freeze the frame! What is this 1985?
And why wasn't Rory noticing all those angels I mean jesus christ they were right there and why did he even go in the building like sunnovabitch there's one RIGHT OUTSIDE and he's like YUP I'LL WANDER IN HERE.
And it was awesome because it's like Rose's goodbye only we don't get a round 2 (and 3 and 4) and I like that. BAM. ABRUPT TRAGEDY. SHAPOW. THAT'S ALL FOLKS. THE PONDS HAVE LEFT THE BUILDING.
I don't know what I was really expecting this week but I liked it. I cried. Something still isn't sitting quite right with me and I don't know why . I'll work it out later. Hm.
Steven's writing hasn't felt quite right since The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe. Like he's too caught up on themes like marriage and catchphrases that he kinda over

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.
