My father passed away a few weeks ago, it hit me pretty hard because we were really close. His name was Bob Brown, also a great artist and a singer, he was in a rock band back in his day. Anyway I've had some time to adjust to it, trying to get back into the swing of things now
The good news is.. I'm getting married! Me and my beautiful girlfriend Allira went on a holiday just a week ago (had it planned for months) we went to Thailand, also went on the Phi Phi Island tour where I seized the chance and got down on one knee, popped the question, showed her the ring I've been hiding for months, and she said yes! So now we're engaged!

Street For Beginners: Compose Like a MasterNow that we are all now masters of our cameras, and it has truly now become a tool that enhances our ability to make art. It is time to begin working on our second required skill for improving our street photography. Remember while doing this to continue following the golden rule:Street For Beginners: Compose Like a Master2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't Shoot Street Photography
If you spend some time looking at the masters of street photography images, like Henri Cartier Bresson's, they all have one thing in common; their photographs are compositional masterpieces.
Composition is often the most overlooked skill in street photography, where photographers focus more on capturing the "decisive moment", but without strong composition a photograph will an excellent captured moment will still not pop out of the page.
Street photography requires the photographer to have the ability to make a strong composition in a fraction of a second; it almost must be second nature to the street photographer.
In order to gain this "sixth sense" of photography and hav
A FILMIE FEATURE.A FILMIE FEATURE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tri-X is a classic high-speed black-and-white photographic film from Kodak. It was introduced around 1940 and it was one of Kodak's first high-speed black-and-white films. Tri-X 400 is usually rated at ISO 400 when processed in standard developers, and remains among the fastest black-and-white films today.
It´s an all-purpose panchromatic film, for subjects requiring good depth of field and high shutter speeds, and for extending the flash distance range. Has fine grain, high sharpness, medium contrast, and moderate degree of enlargement.
With the advent of digital photography, Tri-X has all but fallen out of use in newspaper journalism, though it remains popular in documentary journalism, what led it to be extensively re-engineered, and in 2007 received the new designation 400TX, in place of TX or TX400, and also became finer-grained.
That's why Tri-X was one of the most popular films used by photojournalists, street photographers, and many amateurs.

The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown. Here at DA HQ, we can’t help but imagine what Joss Whedon might have done with the character.
Pray no one involved in the Catwoman movie gets close to it.
Tutorial: Hooters Regional Pageant Lighting Set UpTutorial: Hooters Regional Pageant Lighting Set Up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

This months theme is: Mythology
Yup! We've been considering this for awhile, but never really got around to it.
Here's what you can do
-ANY Country! Yup, you can do Nordics, Greeks, Chinese, whatever!
-OCs/Other Characters are allowed! So you can do stuff like Percy Jackson dudes and the Avengers I guess. But I would stay away from making your own mythical creature.
-Humanizations! Go ahead and humanize an existing creature.
-EDIT: These have to be things that are actually taboos people spread around and possibly believe in. They usually are found in religion. Things like the Lochness monster etc. are acceptable too. Feel free to ask if you aren't sure.
-EDIT2: Yes, gods, goddesses, spirits, titans, it's all okay.

Do you understand the reason why I set Japanese password?
It came from my fear that unexpected happenings can occur in oversea communities unlike in Japan.
For example, in oversea communities, my models can be edited to zombies, killed, and redistributed.
Needless to say, each of above-mentioned behavior is enough to my anger.
Still now, I cannot see an improvement of this situation, even though NononoP kindly conveyed my message to you. http://nononop.deviantart.com/journal/the-message-from-roco-319791387
I set Japanese password, but I do not intend at all to discriminate against non-Japanese users.
I know what happened in oversea communities until now. It is horrible. Just for example.. http://q-ku-mmd.deviantart.com/journal/No-kidding-323908895 http://fuwarimofumofu.deviantart.com/journal/jirai-tasinamu-teido-niha-318303828

ACTA Worse than SOPAACTA Worse than SOPA and Classified as National Security by ObamaACTA Worse than SOPA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The demise of SOPA and PIPA, as temporary as it may be, means attention is now turning to ACTA (the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement). ACTA is a trade agreement that has already been signed by the United States and is even worse than SOP/PIPA. Trade Agreements do not require the same type of scrutiny that bills and laws do so ACTA was able to squeak by unnoticed. Australia, Canada, the European Union, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland and the United States are all signatories, but pressure is already being applied to other countries to join. The EU has not yet signed ACTA but has to do so before May 2013.
The BRIC group of emerging nations – Brazil, Russia, India and China – are not part of the ACTA movement and have
