All Snapped Up .3 ~ melvynyeo~ An interview of a talented artist in our General Photography Community
melvynyeo, tell us a bit about yourself. How did you get into photography and why?
My name is Melvyn and I’m a designer. Photography has been my passion and hobby ever since I picked up a point and shoot camera 7 years ago. My main “focus” has always been insect macrophotography.
Why are you on deviantART and what makes you stay?
I chanced upon deviantART when searching for photos on the net for inspiration about 6 years ago. What really amazed me and make me stay is because there are so many talented people actively participating in deviantART. It is like a big big family of artists and photographers!
What type of photography do you most like to do and why?
I do landscape, portrait and events but my main passion is always macro photography.

1. Happy Holidays and Merry New Year
As the old year begins to fade into the sunset, it is customary to reflect on the passing year and make plans for the upcoming one. Some do this in the form of resolutions, some people make action plans, some people just swing into the new year the same way they swung out of the old one Whatever way you intend to welcome in 2013, I hope you're surrounded by love and that you do it safely!
I've been reflecting on the year and like many, with some focus on the unimaginable events of the last few weeks. Specifically, the shooting in Newtown. I know that it's "human nature" to want to find

Huge congratulations to xMEGALOPOLISx for publication of his book 'Megalopolis' this month. The book offers an amazing collection of photographs which capture the complexity of the world's biggest metropolises.

Project Educate: Aperture, Shutter and ISO SpeedToday we'll take a quick basic look at Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO Speed.Project Educate: Aperture, Shutter and ISO Speed4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The aperture determines the amount of light that is allowed into the digital sensor. A small number indicates a large aperture whereas a large number indicates a lower aperture. For example, an aperture of 8 would let in less light than an aperture of 4. Imagine your eye, specifically your pupil; the bigger the pupil is, the more light is being let in and the smaller it is, the less light. This is what is effectively happening with your camera. The aperture also determines the DOF (depth of field).
The numbers you usually see on the side of lenses look like this;
F 22 | 16 | 11 | 8 | 5.6 | 2.4
The larger the number, the less light is allowed in. Each number depicts double the amount of light allowed through the lens. For example, an aperture of 5.6 will allow twice the amount of light in than 8, but only half the amount of light than 2.4.

"Have no fear of perfection - You'll never reach it! "
Have you studied Photography? I'm intrigued to know whether or not a qualification in Photography has made you a better, or indeed a worse photographer. Or has there been no change? This week, The Photography Blog asks whether or not a Photography Degree is worth the paper it's written on. Graduation in any field these days doesn't mean that you'll immediately get a job in your desired area. Not these days. So is it worth embarking on study related to photography when in the end, you could get to the same place without the paper stating what you are capable of? Photography is one of a small number of job areas where what you've done speaks higher volumes than whether or not you're

There is no volunteer for 3D Art!? What do we do now?
First than anything, let's give a warm farewell to the volunteers who have stepped down from the team recently: ditto9, DpressedSoul, DemonMathiel, StamatisGR and WillowXD
As you can see, one of them is WillowXD who until recently, took care of the Game Development Art and Digital Art > 3D, meaning we don't currently have somebody taking care of 3D Art. Who do you send your 3D suggestions to then? For the time being, please address your suggestions to Moonbeam13 in the meantime a new volunteer is selected.

Food Photography - back to basicsFood is a necessity for daily life and good health (the right kinds anyway), but food is also fast becoming something of an Art as well as many turn to their cameras once a mammoth baking session is over and capture the delightful dishes in attractive and alluring ways. Since the beginnings of Still Life Photography, food has been a subject and whilst the topic has remained the same - methods, equipment and ease have changed in varying degrees across the years. Food Photography is still a genre that is vastly overlooked and majorly underrated in the art world.Food Photography - back to basics3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It all began with Still Life Paintings back in the 17th Century. They were as far from commercial as a style could get and certainly weren't created with selling in mind. However the skill and main aspects that realism painters took back in the 17th Century are kept close to the hearts of Food Photographers today as they grip onto Realism, effects of light, composition and arrangement. Props have always been an important part of
