My review on the commissions widgetAs most all of you probably already know, recently a Commissions widget was released to Beta Testers. I've heard a lot of negativity towards this feature, specially because of the 20% that DA takes from the artist's earnings. But I've always thought that before saying anything about any feature on DA I would prefer to test it first, so I recently installed this widget in my profile offering some simple comissions and now that I've had the oppotunity to test it, here is my opinion.My review on the commissions widget2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First, the 20% deduction from your income. Yes I'm not a big fan of it either, in my opinion, the biggest negative of this feature.
I'm not an $admin or a developer and I'm not an economics expert either, so I don't understand the reasons for this deduction, however I know there must be a reason for it besides the obvious that DA needs money to keep itself running. Yes, knowing this doesn't help much, but at

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday

With that said, I actually don't celebrate birthdays, not even my own. If you care to know the specifics, feel free to note me.
I also want you all to be aware of why I didn't post this journal earlier: A great man died on Saturday. His name was Gordon, and he was 93 years old. He loved God and spent a lot of his time teaching others about the Bible, which he learned a lot about in his late 80's. He was loved by all those at my Kingdom Hall, and when he fell twice at home and ended up in the ICU with pneumonia on top of it, we felt horrible. I was told though, that before he died, he was happy and smiling and laughing when people came to visit him. He also died in

Wildlife Learning Center is a small, fantastic zoo in Sylmar, CA. They care for a menagerie of exotic animals and train them as ambassadors to help educate the public about wildlife preservation. Many of their animals are rescues from pet owners who kept them illegally, or rescues from the wild where various injuries would make their survival impossible. The fundraiser is being held to raise money for the animals' care.

"Let your words be few - and your exposures many"
Earlier this week I was stalking a photography forum (because it's where all the cool kids are) and I noticed somebody claiming to be a fairly professional photographer angling for information on the best mega-pixels D-SLR camera they could get in order to stabilise their images. Well anybody who knows even a tiny inkling about Photography will very quickly jump on that as most of us know full well that no matter how many megapixels you've got, they aren't worth a thing without a steady hand or more importantly a good sturdy tripod. I never was a firm believer in a tripod and even now, I rarely use it. However I use any number of things to stabilise myself when shooting whether that involves lying in a bed of flowers, resting against a wall or indeed using the nearest person (which I don't recommend - people sway!) However it's not difficult to get

Project Educate: Composition BasicsThe action of putting things together; formation or construction.Project Educate: Composition Basics3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The term composition simply means 'putting together' and is applied to all forms of art. In this respect, composition is all about the placement, arrangement or organisation of the individual elements within a photo. The composition of a photograph is what catches the viewer's attention and is what makes the image pleasing to the eye. By practicing and developing basic composition techniques, you can produce pieces of work which can recreate the impact of the original scene.
Some tips for developing composition skills are;
Look around using the viewfinder every time you take a picture.Look at each element and how it impacts the overall composition.Become familiar with your camera. Learn how it works, play around with settings and really get to know how each setting changes the overall image.Experiment and practice. Experiment and practice.
