Mission: Photograph the pageant pictures for the Regional Hooters Pageant.
Goal: Offer something unique to Hooters and the women in the Pageant. Give them something other than, the normal pageant pictures.
The situation actually turned out great this year. I had a space that allowed me to have privacy and was next to the trailer the women where changing in. The previous year we had issues because it is a outdoor event and a lot of the "fans" tried to mingle with the contestants. So we had the perfect spot. We were also able to use the district managers mustang as a prop so that was really cool. The soft box is boomed up front. Always remember, especially when shooting outside, to bring something to weigh down the boom. Too easy for it to get blown over, even by the slightest gust of wind. The second light (gelled with pu

Decided it was time to put out a final feature journal before my subscription runs out tomorrow.
My intention is not to renew it for the time being and for the immediate future to be spending less time here. It's entirely possible I won't be on the internet by the end of the month so I'm pre-empting this situation by winding down my internet activity.
On a brighter note I'm very busy putting together a book of Art Nude images hopefully it will be available next month, initially via Amazon. More details soon
At first, I saw this project as a step forward, but as it's progressed over recent months and the length of time since my last shoot approaches 8 months it has begun to take on the feel of a summing up hope this isn't how things turn out, but if it is it will be a sort of closure and a small achievement I can be happy with

I'm sorry I haven't been active on dA for a while and kinda neglected my groups here. I know I've probably lost some watchers, but I still wanna thank you for those who've stayed all these times and been supporting me.
University has kept me away from photography and to be honest, I lost my inspiration to take photos. It's horrible. I feel like something's changed and I don't like where this is going. I hope to pick up photography again now that I have the semester break. For now I'll be uploading old photos.
Here's a small feature

Why Authors Kill Off CharactersI can actually answer this question, at least for myself. Coming from the perspective of a hopefully-soon-tobe-published author, I think killing off main characters is a sign of maturity as a writer. When authors coddle their characters and give them whatever they want, the end result is often spoiled, hard-to-relate-to characters who get happy endings handed to them on a silver platter. Take Twilight, for example. In all four 400-600 page novels, not one pivotal "good" character dies. And what are we left with? Little character development, no themes or lessons to be learned, and the acute feeling that the books were more like fairytales with all the characters skipping off into the sunset hand-in-hand. Admit it: you remember a book that made you cry more than a book that made you smile. Every classic novel that has withstood the test of time features some sort of death, agony, suffering or all of the above. Suffering builds character. And sometimes, killing a character is necessary fWhy Authors Kill Off Characters3 years ago in Personal More Like This

It looks better in real life...
Scanner ate the colors!
The photo does not do justice.
How many times you have read or typed yourself such notes in artist’s comments, under traditional artworks?
You’re not alone; digitizing our drawings, paintings, sculptures and other traditional, hand-made artworks can be tricky. Of course the work is never exactly same when changing it from a concrete object to a picture on a screen, but a lot can be done to achieve as representative result as possible!
This is the first part of a basic guide how to make your traditional artworks look appealing when presenting them in the Internet. This is not about changing or manipulating your traditional artwork to something it is not originally, but helping you to make it look as good on a screen as it is in real life.
This Part 1 introduces scanning and photographing tips.
The Part 2 advices how to edit the scanned/photographed artworks.
