4 Top Wedding Photography Tools Memory Card4 Top Wedding Photography Tools2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Use the fastest memory card that your camera will allow. Don't skimp on it! Spend some time investing in your memory cards - and yes, cards because you need more than one. A lot of manufacturers will tell you the read speed maximum for the card, but not the write speed. The latter is the most important for us as we need to know how quickly the photos will write to the card before allowing us to shoot again. I found out the hard way about memory cards, whilst trying to shoot a santa fun run. I was in sports mode to capture as many shots as possible but my memory card allowed about five before 'writing- unable to operate' flashed up. Needless to say I ended up with a lot of backsides and not many faces! There's nothing worse than snapping the wedding speeches only to find that the cake has been cut and everyone has gone home by the time you're ready to take another shot. Shocking.
DA's Insular Taste PhenomenonIt's been quite a while since I wrote a preachy "THINK ABOUT YO' ART"-type journal, and some of my newer watchers may not know that this is a particular(ly annoying) habit of mine. This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go. (As an aside- this journal does have some recycled ideas from a previous post of mine, but obviously I hadn't really said everything I wanted to on the subject.)DA's Insular Taste Phenomenon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's no mystery that I love this website. I came in at the tail end of the pre-critique wonder years, when the internet discovered and exploited that, yes, we don't always produce the highest quality art here. There's a lot of unpleasantness directed towards DeviantArt. At RISD, I made a point to never mention that I had an account here, because of the looks of disgust I would get haha and people would think about me differently. It was

10 Ways to Improve the Quality of our PhotomanipsOn the "decline" of quality in the photomanipulation gallery10 Ways to Improve the Quality of our Photomanips10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen a lot of polls, journals, etc. recently about the quality of the photomanipulation gallery and fears that it has declined. I have intentionally not commented, but I will address the issue here. I think our beloved community is going through a "learning phase" where we are rediscovering ourselves and our art. We have a lot-- a LOT-- of new people, and I want to wish them a warm welcome because they are critical to our vitality as a community..
In turn, a lot of our older, more experienced artists have moved on, frequently owing to time constraints due to having more commissions and freelance work.
So, saying our quality has declined is really not fair. Rather, we are in a cycle of change that happens every couple of years within our community.
It is perhaps true that we have reached a collective slump in creativity. Like inspires like, and I see the same thing over and
Welcome to the Internet. Now go home.I post stuff here, on fetlife, and on tumblr. Well, I used to - now I hardly do at all.Welcome to the Internet. Now go home.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not because of copyright. I understand that when you post something on the internet, you're posting it for everyone to look at, and it's going to get shared around. But the comped-up piece of shit you see above (minus my commentary) is all over the internet - it's far more widely distributed than my original version. Back when I used to read my messages here and on Fetlife, I had 12-20 messages per day about stuff like this. Mostly it was people trying to be helpful and telling me "HEY! Look over here, there's another person who smeared shit all over your art!" And it used to take me an hour every morning to cut and paste URLs into DMCA requests to get this kind of crap taken down.
But that's really only the tip of the emotional iceberg for me. About 1 in 10 times that I post a DMCA I'd get a message from the perso

Fantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 22I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 223 years ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the PlanetsPlanetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to the latest "dark" photomanipulation contest, supported by Community Relations here on deviantART. This contest will challenge you to think outside of the box, for you will have to not only create something, but you will need to do a bit of research and think about why you are creating it. Are you ready for a competition that is out of this world?
Before we go any further, let me clarify that PLUTO COUNTS!
What do I have to do?
Choose one of the planets (or Pluto) in our solar system, listed below. Moons or suns can be a part of the larger picture, but they do not count as your god/goddess.
Your job is to create a PHOTOMANIPULATION in which you show a myth around a planetary ruler (that is, the god or goddess after which the planets were named).
The gods/goddesses can be Greek, Roman, or other.... but they must be planetary rulers.

Breakthrough Manips 3 + 4!Breakthrough Manips 3 + 4!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Due to my lack of posting last month's series, I'm doing a double dosage of fantastic manips this month! Boo Yah!
Breakthrough Manips shows off works by talented artists whose work receives less than 100 favorites. It's designed to help breakthrough the tough crowd called "popularity." We all want to be popular right? But is that really what's important? no. Sure it's nice to attract attention, to get your work out there and be known to create fabulous artworks. But being popular tends to block the way for other wonderful artists to be seen, and there are TONS of incredible artists whose work goes unnoticed. Just take a look at the this series of outstanding manips with less then 100 favorites. Go give them some lovin'!
