Home!!I got home from my crazy trip to Chernobyl yesterday and have mostly caught up on my sleep.Home!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I saw lots of stuff, snapped thousands of photos, and wrote a detailed trip journal each night (and sometimes paused during the day to sit down and write a bit...) about the whole experience. It'll help me cement everything in my memory to write it all down quickly before it fades.
Looking at lots and lots of wreckage made my mind start to go numb; there are levels and levels of detail and I kept trying to make sense of everything. It simply doesn't work. After a day or two, I found myself just walking around shaking my head mumbling, "no. no."
The people who had to deal with the accident did the best they could with an incomprehensible and horrible situation. I kept feeling alternately elated and horrified that humans had been such brave ass-kickers that they got their kids out, left their homes in an orderly manner - and then some of them went back into a radioactive nightmare and cleaned it u

I went to Home Depot recently while not being altogether sure that course of action was a wise one. You see, the previous evening I had prepared and consumed a massive quantity of my patented 'you're definitely going to crap yourself' road-kill chilli. Tasty stuff, although hot to the point of being painful, which comes with a written guarantee from me that if you eat it, the next day both of your butt cheeks WILL fall off. I think some day I might patent the recipe as a weight loss method.
Here's the thing.... I had awakened that morning, and even after two cups of coffee (and all of you know what I mean) nothing happened. No 'Watson's Movement'. Despite the chillies swimming their way through my intestinal tract, I was unable to create the usual morning symphony referred to
Hello, My Name Is Steven Mitchell PerrySpider ThoughtsHello, My Name Is Steven Mitchell Perry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yep, me...the "Evil Penis" guy as most of you liked to call me. Or the Spider, that worked, too.
Before I left dA I noticed that even if you do come back, you can never really truly come back. I mean you can return, sure. Not a problem there. But dA is more of a social network than an art site. It has been going down that path on a steady yet rapid pace for a very long time. Now that I have been absent from activities but have returned occasionally to post work I am not received Particularly well. I understand why the staff would avoid me. I mean, come on, those that have followed me long enough understand that my employment with deviantART did not go especially well. I have never talked publicly about that issue and what exactly happened and will not break that silence now. The issues of my leaving were fairly well documented. But what about all those "friends". What happened to them? I supposed I was simply not networking enough. Or, in my case, at all.

Artists That Inspire Me 13Welcome to all reading this journal my regular feature of the work of others.Artists That Inspire Me 132 years ago in Personal More Like This
Below are the artists whose work has inspired me since my last journal entry. The selections made by no means cover everyone that deserves to be here. In time many many more will follow, as with each passing week I discover so many more talented creative people on here, that one journal entry could never do them all justice. So many of you out there are producing work that leaves me in awe, and it would be unfair of me not to acknowledge the creators of work that has caught my eye and imagination. This journal features some of the more recent works that have stopped me in my tracks. They are presented in no particular order, they are simply a selection that I believe need to be seen and acknowledged by others for their beauty, artistry and ability. I would encourage you all to visit each artist featured as I truly believe that in the DA community we learn so much from each other.

I carried out a poll. It was slightly biased I must admit, because in one of the options I tried to brainwash people into choosing Sony as their preferred make of camera but you guys just wouldn't bite. As it stands now the poll has a close high rating between Canon and Nikon - with (surprisingly) Canon coming out top. So what is that makes You prefer the make of camera that you use? What are its quirky features and endearing parts? If you want to see the full results of the poll

iLightPaint: The Camera and its MoodsA funny yet informative beginner's guide to photographyiLightPaint: The Camera and its Moods3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Only people can have moods, the camera is so amazing it has all the traits of human beings and their eyes.
Talking about the digital camera (since the everyone is going digital) .
The angle of view depends on the type of lens we attach to the camera and the type of sensor present inside the camera's body.
Generally, our eyes have an angle of view to that of the 50 mm lens on a full-frame body. Full frames are professional grade cameras. Consumer cameras have cropped sensors by a factor of 1.5 to 2, that means they are smaller and the angle of view of the lens is multiplied by that factor. Thus, a 50 mm on a cropped sensor body (DX in Nikon, APS-C 1.6x in Canon) has an angle of view of a lens of 75 mm or 80 mm on a full-frame body. [D-SLR camera bodies]
